On Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, the world lost a young woman, Krystal Brooke Pearce, who made it a brighter place, not only for her family, but for anyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting her. While on her way home from college, Krystal was unexpectedly killed in a car accident in South Carolina.
Born June 1, 1995, Krystal was the beloved daughter of Heather Pearce and Doug and Audrey (Neubauer) Pearce, and the beloved sister of Amber Pearce and Hayley Neubauer. She graduated from Sussex Central High School in 2013; finishing sixth in her class. She recently started her freshman year at Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina to become a physical therapist. During her short time at college she became part of the college’s tennis team and she also ran with the track team "just for a workout."
She dedicated her life to helping others and living for the Lord. When she attended Sussex Central, she started a Bible study and also led small groups at Calvary Wesleyan Church. She lived each day to serve the Lord and show the world His light. She had such a positive impact on everyone she met and continues to positively affect people even after life. Her dream was to marry a youth pastor, adopt children and travel the world with missionary teams to help anyone in need. Her bright life of laughter love and service was cut much too short here on earth, but her smile and selflessness will carry on forever in the hearts and lives she touched everywhere she went.
Anyone who had the honor of meeting her will greatly miss the shining light she brought into their lives. Services will be held Thursday, Oct. 10, at Calvary Wesleyan Church, 240 Delaware Ave., Harrington; visiting with family from 10 a.m. to noon, followed by a celebration of Krystal's life at noon, with lunch to follow.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to the Krystal Brooke Pearce Memorial Scholarship to help other student achieve their academic dreams in her name, and send to 907 Weslyan Dr., PO Box 1020, Central, SC 29630.
Make checks payable to Southern Wesleyan University; Memo: Krystal Brooke Pearce.
