Crystal Hernandez-Lopez Obituary

Crystal Nicole Hernandez-Lopez, a vibrant soul whose laughter and kindness touched everyone she met, passed away on February 25, 2024, at the age of 36. Born on September 21, 1987, in Abilene, TX, Crystal's life was a tapestry of love, service, and joy that she shared generously with all who knew her.
Crystal's early years in Abilene were filled with the warmth of a close-knit family. She was preceded in death by her father, Ruben M. Lopez Sr.; her maternal grandmother, Olivia Rankin; and her paternal grandparents, Tomas and Cecilia Lopez. These familial bonds shaped her into the compassionate and caring individual that so many came to love.
Throughout her life, Crystal's heart was large enough to embrace children that she loved as her own. Antonio Hernandez, Junior Hernandez, Ismael Villatoro, Bella Lopez, and Kiana Lopez were the lights of her life, and she cherished every moment spent with them. Her unwavering love and dedication to her family were evident to all, and she leaves behind a legacy of maternal warmth and devotion.
Crystal's mother, Carmen Adame Segura; her siblings, Tiffany (Zack) Zambrano, Skye Bean, Christopher Lopez, Cecilia Lopez, Raynaldo Lopez, Monica (Mike) Garza, Valda Lopez, Rosario Lopez, Rebecca Lopez, and Ruben (Janie) Lopez Jr.; and her maternal grandfather, Adam Adame, will forever remember her infectious smile and the sound of her laughter echoing through the halls of their memories.
Professionally, Crystal was a pillar of strength and integrity. She began her career in corrections as a Corrections Officer 1 at the McConnell Unit in 2006. Her dedication and leadership skills saw her rise through the ranks, culminating in her position as Major Lopez at the Lindsey Unit. Her colleagues admired her for her work ethic, her love for her team, and the respect she commanded across numerous units in Texas. Crystal's 15-year tenure in corrections was marked by her unwavering commitment to her fellow officers and the institution she served.
Beyond her professional accomplishments, Crystal was known for her love of life and her many passions. A great friend to many, she could often be found fishing, a pastime that brought her peace and joy. Her love for music was infectious, and she could make any car ride an adventure with her impeccable taste in tunes and her love for driving. Crystal's sense of humor was unmatched, and she had a unique ability to make people laugh, bringing light to even the darkest of days.
A self-proclaimed foodie, Crystal delighted in trying new foods and exploring different cuisines. Her adventurous spirit was reflected in her taste buds, and she was always eager to share her culinary discoveries with friends and family. Purple was her favorite color, a hue that matched her royal presence and the depth of her personality. Her favorite football team was the New Orleans Saints, and she cheered them on with the same fervor she approached all aspects of her life.
Crystal lived life to the fullest, her bright, colorful, and creative spirit making the world a more beautiful place. She was loving, kind, and friendly, qualities that defined her and made her beloved by all who had the privilege of crossing her path.
Crystal's passing leaves a void in the hearts of those who loved her, but her spirit will continue to inspire and guide us. Her life was a testament to the power of love, the strength of family, and the joy of friendship. Crystal Nicole Hernandez-Lopez will be profoundly missed, but her legacy will live on in the countless lives she touched with her extraordinary heart and soul.                    Crystal’s family will receive condolences on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, at Treviño Funeral Home Alice, 120 E.
