Crystal Renee Walling

June 23, 1975September 29, 2021

Crystal Renee “Chris” Walling, passed away on September 29, 2021. She was a graduate of Red Bank High School. Crystal loved reading, music, her Boston Terriers, Oscar, Olivia, Moe, Kim, and Roger. She loved Flamingos- lots of Flamingos!

She grew up in the Sawyer Community on Signal Mountain, attending Sawyer Missionary Baptist Church, where she made many lifelong friends.

Crystal was kind and truly loved her friends whole heartedly. If Crystal send you a text you knew it would probably be a “novel”. She was the self proclaimed “Grammar Police”, because we all know the importance of good grammar.

Survivors include; her parents, James and Karen Walling; daughter, Miya Mohr; fiancé, Lonnie Curtis; her Boston Terriers, Oscar, Olivia, Moe, Kim, and Roger; her Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. Crystal is survived by many friends, who she dearly loved.

Graveside services will be held on Saturday, October 16, 2021, at 3:30 PM EDT, at Hamilton Memorial Gardens, with the Rev. Dr. Jerry McNabb officiating. Arrangements are by the North Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home, Crematory, and Florist, 5401 Highway 153, Hixson, TN 37343.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Walling family.

Dear Karen and James,
When a family member leaves this life it is truly the greatest loss anyone can ever experience and when it is one of our children I'm sure it can seem impossible to go on. I am so very sorry to hear Crystal has moved to Heaven . There are no words to express the shock and sadness. Only our Amazing God can walk with you thru this tragedy and give you His peace and one day all your questions will be answered and all your tears will be wiped away. Until then, try to recall the memories, joy and love you have with Crystal and remember according to God's promise in His Word she is not gone forever but you are only apart for a time as she waits for you in Heaven.
My deepest sympathy, Kristie Burkhart Jackson

I’m so sorry to learn of Crystal’s passing. I remember her and her mom from Bachman Elementary School and the Brownies. She was a sweet girl. Sending prayers for the family.

Prayers and love for your family during this time of grief and sorrow. Crystal...giiirl back in the day memories flood my mind. You were so funny and full of's hard to believe that you are gone! Things like all the jobs we blew up together....Alexian Village, Red Bank Animal Clinic, Don Quioxtes,'s a lot more than that but literally nothing but a no call no show kinda day (yikes!). We shared a passionate love of reading and I have yet to find anyone who can read a good book in an entire day. The fun times and fights with the Casey's, Jilly Bean, Penny and of course Brent! I don't think I would have ever set foot in Alan Golds if you in your hot pants hadn't insisted on that whole drag show experience 😳...I remember our mutual obsession with the OJ Simpson trial....of course hours on the phone (cause we loved being home much more than being out) watching it daily and crying when the verdict was announced. Just crazy random things (lots more forever private!) that are memories of you that make me smile and yet....break my heart at the same time. Over the years of course, we lost touch periodically touching base on a random occasion but you probably never knew how much it meant to me that you reached out when my mom died! Or maybe you did because you had that kind of heart and it was a big one for sure. Crystal, Your beautiful little girl will always be a little piece of you and I pray for her tonight knowing that pain of losing a mom is beyond words just literally the worst! My dear,old ,beautiful friend has found peace and the world is a little less bright without her!

I first met Crystal and her Mother Karen at a small country church on Signal Mtn. Crystal was just a young girl when her and her mother moved into the community and started attending the church. Crystal was always such a beautiful person, both outside and more importantly, inside. She definitely did shine from the inside out...just as a beautiful Crystal. As the years have gone by, we no longer attend church together, but have remained close friends. Crystal and her family are more than just friends...they are family that we love deeply. We share your pain and your tears. A better day is coming!! This isn't the end we will see Sweet Crystal again!!

It it's with much sorrow that I share my thoughts, memories, and sadness of the passing of my precious neice.
I thought of Crystal as more of a little sister than a neice. The age difference didn't matter. She was my sister. It wasn't that long ago Karen, Crystal, and I were on adventures to the mountains, beach, shopping til we dropped, or just spending time together at their mountain home. It didn't matter where we were, or what we were doing; what was important was time spent together. We loved and laughed. We were blessed beyond words.
God gave us an angel, if only for a short time. The name Crystal was spot on. She sparkled brilliantly; like a cluster of stars in the sky.
Karen and James my heart is broken. There simply are no words. I love you both, and sweet Miya.
Rest in peace my beautiful girl.
