Crystal Vigil-Juarez


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record


Crystal passed away on October 21, 2017 in Albuquerque, NM. Crystal was born May 22, 1978 in Roswell, NM and was 39 years old. She was born to David Vigil and Frances Horton, both of her parents have preceded her in death.
Crystal lived a life that was uniquely all her own. For many people around her Crystal’s contribution to their lives was her innate ability to liven up an otherwise darkened room with personality and charisma. She seemed fearless at times not willing to back down when others might choose to be timid; she could be flexible when sternness was inappropriate; and she was compassionate when others might be willing to be unforgiving. She was a life not polished but her luster was in her attempt to always be the best she could be. Her light left too soon but during its short time it burned with a fire that has silhouetted a legacy that will be with her family for generations to come. A legacy that will be seen in her children and the memories they carry with them; a legacy she leaves for a husband who is mourning; and a legacy for her family that will never forget the times, both amazing and sorrowful, that the time with them mattered.
Preceded in death are her mother Frances Horton; father David Vigil; grandfather Felipe Horton, Manuel Vigil and Gregoria Potillo of Tularosa, NM; aunts Kathryn “Kathey” Horton, Mary Lou Horton, Rose Salazar Horton; uncles Rosito Horton, Augustine Horton; nephew Jeremiah Ray Jaramillo; cousin Angel Horton.
