Crystal E. Doty

June 13, 1961 — June 25, 2022

Coal City

Age 61 of Coal City, Illinois, formerly of Joliet, Illinois, died Saturday, June 25, 2022 at the Lightways Hospice Home in Joliet.

Born June 13, 1961 in Joliet, Crystal Elaine was a daughter of Floyd Doty and Frances Foster. She was raised and educated in Joliet, graduated from Joliet West High School, and attended Joliet Junior College. Crystal enjoyed spending time outdoors going riding around looking for deer, watching her hummingbird feeders, and catching a good thunderstorm. She was a devoted mother and cherished spending time with her grandchildren. Crystal always looked forward to the holidays and cooking enough food to serve an army. Easter was her favorite holiday and she made sure to prepare at least a thousand eggs for the family Easter egg hunt. Crystal was a helpful, reliable woman who always put others before herself, and was just a good person who will be missed deeply by those who loved and knew her.

Survivors include her loving companion, Duane Gremar of Coal City, four children: Josh (Christine) Kingman and Laura Kingman, both of Coal City, Ashley (Brandon) Gremar of Rantoul, Illinois, and Gina (Eddie) Gremar of Odell, Illinois; eleven grandchildren: Ronnie, Gracelynn, Adelynn, Breanna (Dylan), Brent, Dylan, Jayden, Cienna, Taylynn, Jacob, and Tabitha; two great grandchildren: Tucker and Rhett; one brother, Rich (the late Julie) Doty of Joliet, one sister-in-law, Kathy Doty of Texas, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Crystal was preceded in death by her parents; one sister, Cheryl Doty, one brother, Rodger Doty, and one grandson, Owen Kingman.
