Crystal Dawn Bordwine of Newcastle, Oklahoma went home to be with the Lord on October 5, 2021 at the age of 56. Crystal was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Roy Gene and Della A. Thomas (formerly Smith) on January 23, 1965. She lived in Dibble, Oklahoma for many years, then moved to Newcastle, her home for the past eighteen years. Crystal was a graduate of Newcastle High School. It was there that she met the love of her life, Mike, at the age of 17. They were married on February 26, 1982, and together they had three beautiful children, Mike Jr., Sarah, and McKayla. Crystal spent her career in broadcasting and worked for the Oasis radio station for 27 years.
Everywhere Crystal went, she never met a stranger, and every time she met someone new, she either discovered that they were related, or they had a mutual friend. Crystal loved her husband, her children, and her grandchildren fiercely. She spent all her time with her family. She was a big Sooners fan and attended every OU home game with her husband. She was her grandkids’ biggest fan, attending every one of their sporting events, stock shows, and dance recitals. She also adored going shopping and spending time out at the lake.
Crystal was very involved with the Tri City Worship Center in Newcastle, and she was the leader of the church’s Royal Rangers. Her faith and her love for Jesus was very strong. Before her passing, Crystal told several people that she was not afraid to die because she was confident that she was going to Heaven. Crystal’s warm, caring heart touched the lives of many, and she will be forever remembered by all those who knew and loved her.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Roy and Della Thomas, her brother, Bobby Thomas, and a daughter, McKayla Bordwine.
Crystal is survived by her beloved husband of 39 years, Michael Bordwine; her children, son Michael and wife Brandy, and daughter Sarah; grandchildren Jacey, Jory, Maverick, Mayci, Grayson, and Ireland; and three siblings, Bobby, Rick, and Steve Thomas.
