May 21, 1986 ~ June 10, 2016
"Krystal was a vibrant, beautiful, and loving
young woman. She loved the Lord and touched
many lives in her short journey on this earth."

Krystal Jaye Mitchell, 30, was tragically taken from her loved ones on June 10, 2016 in San Diego, California where she was vacationing. She was born on May 21, 1986. Krystal attended Riverview Elementary, Wy'East Junior High, and Mountain View High School. She moved to Phoenix, Arizona from Vancouver, Washington to pursue an advanced career in Property Management.
Many friends and family members have come forward to share how Krystal had inspired them; many attribute their growth in faith to her influence. Krystal enjoyed traveling, the beach, singing, hiking, making new friends, and her favorite song was "Oceans" by Hillsong United. She was compassionate and generous with a heart for the homeless.
Krystal is loved by many. Her absence
has created a void for those she leaves behind.
Krystal is survived by her two children, Blake (6) and Farrah (5) Bondarchuk; her mother, Josephine Wentzel; father, Guy Mitchell; sister, Leanna Mitchell; brother, Brian Mitchell; step-father, Michael Wentzel; step-brother, Charles Wentzel; step-sister, Elizabeth Wentzel; and her numerous loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Please join Krystal's family at Evergreen Memorial Gardens for a graveside service on Thursday, June 23, 2016 at 3:00 p.m., followed by a reception at Turning Point Church, 709 NE 136th Avenue. A Life Celebration Memorial Service will be held on Friday, June 24, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at Turning Point Church.
In lieu of flowers, Krystal would appreciate your donations toward the upbringing of her children at

Jaye and Mike, we are so sorry... It still seems surreal. ..Krystal was full of life, a seemingly unending source of contagious energy. She was a sweet and kind hearted young who loved her God. May you find comfort knowing she is resting in her heavenly Father's arms. Know that we love you guys and are here for you.

I will never forget the look in your eyes as you ran into the waiting subway at Metro Station in DC a few weeks before you left us. It was not a proper goodbye--how I wish I could have held you in my arms on that platform without the rush of catch airplanes that day. And I will cherish the memory of napping with you at Mt Vernon, looking over the Potomac on that beautiful spring day as the Dogwoods bloomed.

You are the most cheerful, positive, radiant woman I ever met. As I reflect on our time together, I am struck by how prepared you were to meet the Lord. You seemed to sense that your time was near.

I pray God cradles your family and your children in His arms until they can run into your arms again. I pray God that you know of my Love for you. Til we meet again Krystal--I will cherish your gift.

Krystal I remember when you were a little girl, with your curly hair, now you are at peace with your Lord and savoir. God Bless you my Dear.

Krystal was a compassionate person that valued her children. As one of her children's teachers, I can say that both were well behaved and always well taken care of. I know she cherished her babies. For you two, always know that you're thought of fondly. I'm glad I got to meet grandma on occasion, and I know that little B was so excited to visit Washington this summer! My prayers are with you. Many thoughts and much love to the children, always. For when a child crosses my path, I never forget them. Hugs to the family.

I pray her legacy will see thousands come to a saving knowledge of her Savior Jesus Christ. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints-Psalm 116:15

Krystal, even though we might not have known each other personally, my wife felt a connection with you when she babysat you as a child in the nursery at Arcadia Christian Center. The Lord brought you up to be a vibrant woman who loves life and her kids, and they will always remember you as will we; now the Lord has taken you home to live in His kingdom forever. We always will love and miss you very much.

I met Krystal on my first day at my job as her supervisor at The Meadows. Her bright and vibrant personality was so welcoming. I had just moved to the area from California the week before. She helped me get to know Vancouver and the community that I was managing. She was always willing to do whatever it took to get the days work done. She was a joy to be around. She was driven to advance her career and such a positive person. She will be missed more than words can say. I am shocked my her death and saddened that her light transformed into an angel instead of here on earth at such a young age. My heart goes out to her children and her family. Love and Light, Kristine
