Krystal Elizabeth Tackett

Krystal Elizabeth Tackett, age 45, passed away peacefully at University Hospital on Friday, December 30, 2016. Krystal is now in the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
She was born in Huntington, West Virginia on April 26, 1971 to Mary Murphy of Lorain, Ohio and David Jackson of Huntington, WV. Krystal is survived by Joe Tackett, daughter Kelsea Tackett (Osborn) and son-in-law Tyler Osborn, grandson Cayson Osborn, daughter Abigail Joy Tackett, and son, Jackson Lee Tackett. Also surviving Krystal are her brothers, Cane Jackson of Cleveland, Ohio and Joey Ramella of Huntington, WV, Printus Dion Knight of California and younger sister LaKeisha Jackson of Huntington, WV.
Krystal loved the Lord and was at her happiest singing and praising God and leading praise and worship at her church home of many years, Church on the North Coast. Next to her passion for the Lord was the love and labor she invested in the many young students whose lives she touched and fashioned as a teacher in multiple school districts, most recently at Eastwood Elementary School in Oberlin, Ohio where she taught kindergarten.
Krystal's legacy shall continue in the lives of her children, the students she impacted and mentored and the large church family to whom she ministered and in return ministered to her spiritually.
Friends and family may pay their respects on Wednesday, January 4, 2017.

Guestbook

I had the privalege of knowing Krystal for many years. We have shared many trials, tributlations, and victories over the years. I would have to say that our freindship became the strongest through her battle with cancer. I had the honor of taking her to all her doctor's appointments the first year and half of her 4 year battle. She never once gave up or got mad at God. Krystal always spoke words of faith followed by that beautiful smile of hers. I will miss you terribly but am so happy that you can now personally ask Jesus about those many discussions we had while growing in Christ. Until we meet again my sweet sister in Christ. With love from Charlotte and family.

My husband and I were both friends of Krystal's from elementary school. She was his first girlfriend and she was one of the first friends who fostered my love of tumbling and cheerleading! Although we grew apart over the years, my husband and I both have fond memories of her. We are so happy she is no longer in pain and is now in heaven! She was always a beautiful soul! We sent lots of love, thoughts and prayers to her kids and the entire family!
