Crystal L. LeopoldOctober 20, 1992 ~ August 11, 2017 (age 24)
Crystal Leanne Leopold, of Milwaukee and formerly of Waupaca, was taken from us far too soon on Friday, August 11, 2017 at the young age of 24. She was born in New London, WI on October 20, 1992 to Patrick Leopold, Sr. and Cassandra (Wilson) Leopold. Crystal was more than just a silly sister, loving mother, thoughtful daughter and amazing friend. She was a breath of fresh air to everyone she came into contact with. She had a way of bringing out the joy in people that ultimately became a reflection of herself (who she was as a person). She taught us that perfection wasn’t about doing all the right things in life, but about loving one another and always being there to cheer up someone or making them smile. Crystal is a beautiful soul that touched all of our hearts deeply; a goofy, fearless girl that just made life interesting.
She leaves behind four beautiful children: Alan, Jr. and Samuel Garries, Nathaniel King, Jr. and Emmanuel Sanchez, Jr.; mother, Cassandra Cunningham (significant other, Brian Wilson); step-father, Ronald Cunningham; step-mother, Michele Leopold; foster parents, Wayne and Christine Neumann and their children and families: Aimee, Kasey and Alyssa; siblings: Natasha Leopold, Corey Schumacher, Tiffany Leopold, Patrick Leopold, Jr., Wayne Cunningham, Nicole Leopold, Drew Leopold, Bobbie Jo Cunningham, Benjamin Cunningham, James Cunningham, Jessica Kasprick, Jordan Wilson, Mariah Wilson and Kurt Arndt. Crystal is further survived by a grandmother, Dollie Leopold; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, Patrick Leopold, Sr.; special aunt, Joan Tankersley; and grandparents: Frank Leopold, John Wilson, Jr, Evelyn Wilson, Charles Harris, Christine Deason, Wayne and Irene Hebel.
