Crystal Faye “JuJu” Roy

We are gathered here today in the memory of wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother, Crystal Faye “JuJu” Roy, so that together we may acknowledge and share our joy in the gift that her life was to us, and the pain that her passing brings. In sharing the joy and the pain together today, may we lessen the pain and remember more clearly the joy. Crystal was only 44 when she passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, in Ridgecrest at Trinity Medical Center. It’s hard to say goodbye. We wish that we had more time. She was such a loving and kind person to all who knew her. While we know that she is at peace and that her struggles are at an end, there is pain and sadness. But even though she is gone, she has left the legacy of her love and perseverance. The ways she touched our lives will remain, and we ask you to keep those memories alive by sharing them with us and with one another.

She is survived by her husband Eldred “Bubba” Roy; three children, Margie Isabella Roy, Ryder Louis Roy, and Jessica Roy Clark; two grandchildren, Madelyn and Sofia Hadder; father and mother, Henry “Wahoo” Denny and Margie Adams Denny; along with her two siblings, Wayne and wife Amber Denny and Lance and wife Tammy Denny; nieces, Jordan and husband Carey Grant, Reagan Denny and Corey Stroud, Maddy Denny, and Kyra Denny; nephews, Trey Germany, Ty Denny, and Wyatt Denny; and one great-nephew, Braxton Stroud.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Leroy and Ethel White Denny; maternal grandparents, William and Eunice Johnson Adams.

To everything there is a season, a time for every

matter under heaven; a time to be born,

and a time to die; a time to plant,

and a time to pluck up what is planted;

a time to weep, and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

a time to keep, and a time to cast away.

-Ecclesiastes
