Krystal Amber Geraldo, Passes Away at 24
Thursday, June 10, 2021
Krystal Amber Geraldo, 24, passed away on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, at St. Luke’s Hospital after a devastating motorcycle accident on Sunday.
She was born in Providence, RI on August 26, 1996, to Mylene Geraldo and the late Paul Geraldo. In 2010, Mylene met her fiancee, Ronald Rasmussen who quickly became a second father to Krystal after the death of Paul.
Growing up, Krystal was an intelligent and stubborn child, often seen running amok in Bristol during the Portuguese Feasts and carnivals with her best friends, Jenna and Alex as well as her sisters, Rebecca and Sarah. As she grew up, she was determined to become a self-sufficient woman who could do as she pleased; for this reason, she learned to drive early, thanks to her Vovo’s loose grasp on American vs Portuguese driving laws, began working with Sip’n’Dip at a young age and was close to graduating early from the Mount Hope High School in Bristol, before catching a case of senior-itis.
Anyone who knew her would say that she was witty and quick to run her mouth if upset; a small but fierce woman she dedicated her time to working with the elderly in home-care as a CNA; hoping to one day continue on for her RN or LPN. She was a woman who was devoted to her family and her friends, she was passionate about working on her prized car, a Subaru 5th Gen Legacy. When she wasn’t working on her car or with CharterCare she was keeping up with her Snapchat streaks.
Krystal is loved unconditionally by most everyone who met her; she is survived by her loving mother and step-father, Mylene and Ronnie; her step-sisters, Rebecca Falvey and Sarah Rasmussen; her roommate and niece, Jen and Jena Ferreira; her friends, to name a few, Victoria Eugenio, Jenna Snoeck, Alex Duseault; her cat, Sierra; her beloved Subaru 5th Gen; two Golden Labs, Lilly and Gizmo. She is to be treasured by a host of aunts and uncles, cousins, coworkers, clients, friends and other varied misfits across Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
She is welcomed into heaven by her late father, Paul Geraldo, and grandmother, Libania De Sousa Almeida.
