Crystal Michelle Wittersheim, age 38, died on January 10, 2013 at St. John Macomb Oakland Hospital-Macomb Center, In Warren, Michigan. She was born June 6, 1974 in Garden City, Michigan to James (Theresa) Purcell and the late Anita (nee:Fall) Tuominen.
Shortly after graduation in 1992 from Annapolis High School in Dearborn Heights, Crystal worked some odds and ends jobs. She was a girl who enjoyed life to its fullest. Crystal loved her children with all her heart,...she would do anything for her babies. You could find her paging through magazines, catalogs, and books looking for ideas for her kids Halloween costumes. She would host the annual "Ugly Sweater" party at Christmas for her friends and family. If she wasn't having a Halloween or Christmas party you could always count of her to planning a made-up party or any random party just so everyone could get together. Crystal was wild, fun, loving, caring, and funny person. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her loving husband, Donald; her children, Makayla, Jacob, Hannah, Parker, and Daphney; her father, James Purcell; her siblings, Melissa, Michael, Amanda (Steve), Joey, Michael, and Randy; her nieces and nephews, Anita, Spencer, Lily, Addsion, Moira, and Kirsten. She is also survived by many other loving family members and friends. She was predeceased by her mother, Anita Tuominen.
A memorial visitation will be held on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 2pm until the time of her eulogy service at 5:30pm, at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 1/2 Mile Road).
Please share memories at her memory book.
