Crystal Dawn Brown Bagwell, loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, December 6, 2023, at Cottingham Hospice House in Seneca surrounded by her loving family. As she took her final breath in this world, she also took her first breath of that celestial air in Heaven.
Born December 21, 1970 in Easley, South Carolina to John Earl Brown, Jr. and Barbara Revis Brown, she lived to serve others. She was a devoted follower of Christ and was a longtime member and pianist for over 20 years at First Baptist Church Norris where her amazing musical talents were shared with all that came to worship. She and Reid served the children of the church in the nursery during Sunday school hours for many years as well.
Her service to others extended further as she cherished the bringing of new life into the world as a labor and delivery nurse for 30 years. She touched the lives of so many families during her career at Baptist Easley and Greenville Memorial Hospitals where she developed very special friendships with her coworkers as well. Sherry, Portia, Alicia, Ashley and many others have held a very special place in her heart including our dear friend Melvin Maw.
She loved to go shopping for deals anywhere there was a clearance aisle and would sit and work through puzzle books of all sorts. Crystal also loved travel and adventure. She and Reid loved to hop on a cruise ship at the drop of a hat where they made incredible memories with family and friends.
Not only was Crystal a loving wife and daughter, but she was also the best mother in the world to Brianna, Bailey and Brayden, and honorary mother to Claire Ford Coker. She was always there to support them whether it be sports, theater, or marching band. She rarely missed those precious moments to cheer on her kids, even when she had to work all night.
In addition to her mother and father she is survived by her loving husband of 32 years, Anthony Reid Bagwell, three daughters, Brianna Ellsworth and her husband Corey, Bailey Bagwell, and Brayden Bagwell, she was a beloved sister to Shane Brown and his wife Lori, she also cherished the love and friendship with her mother-in-law, Jayne King. Her life, though, became complete when she became a grandmother. Levi and Laurel Ellsworth were her greatest treasures. Levi gave her the name of “Turtle” and that is how she became affectionately known to many.
Flowers will be accepted, or memorial donations may be made in her memory to First Baptist Church Norris PO Box 130 Norris, SC 29667.
