Chrystal Faye Seals Jennings went to be with her loving Lord and Savior in heaven on Wednesday October 10, 2018.
Chrystal was born January 28, 1944 to Clyde and Mary Neva Seals in Coleman, Texas. She was raised in Coleman with her two sisters Glenda Seals Hollabaugh and Doris Seals McCullouch.
Chrystal met Ed Jennings while living in Lubbock. They were married on November 28, 1964. They were married for 38 years. They had one daughter, Rhonda. Ed and Chrystal lived in Lubbock and Abilene before settling down in San Angelo in 1972. Ed and Chrystal were actively involved their church life. Chrystal could always be found helping in the kitchen or fellowship decorating or preparing food for a special event. She especially enjoyed decorating the sanctuary for the Christmas season and was quick to enlist her family and friends in fluffing what seemed like miles and miles of garland. Her dearest ministry, however, was the prayer ministry. Chrystal was a powerful prayer warrior who loved praying for others. She touched so many lives by the hours she spent on her knees.
Chrystal was also known by her family and friends for her great love of shopping. She enjoyed doing things for others and was generous in her efforts to care for the ones she loved. She adored her daughter and son-in-law, Dennis and Rhonda, and her two granddaughters, Emily and Abby. She was known to spoil them rotten and instilled in them her philosophy of life which is to “eat dessert first.” She believed in having fun and living each day to its fullest potential.
