Crystal Jean Mcwain, went to be with the Lord our Savior on, December 24, 2018. She was surrounded by her loving family, in the comfort of her home. Her seven year battle with cancer has ended. She was 63.


Crystal was born, on September 21,1955, in Gouverneur, to Ilene Louise Moore Hosmer and William Harvey Hosmer both from this area. When the marriage ended in divorce, Crystal went to live with her father and his wife Leona in the Fort Edwards area.

She is survived by her loving husband, Dorian, whom she had married on February 6,1982, and altogether they had seven wonderful children and nine grandchildren: Sheila and her husband Mark, Jennifer and her husband Jeremy and their three children, Addison, Marley and Sadie. Angela Christine, Jenny and her husband Richard, and their two children, Nicholas and Sunny. Dorian II and his partner, Martin, David and his wife Catherine, and their two children, Riley and Claire, and Sarah and her husband Matt, and their daughter Autumn Rose, and soon to be born baby Epperly.

Crystal, also left behind four sisters and three brothers and their spouses, Connie (Hosmer-Haynes) and her husband Robert, Margaret (Moore-Mashaw) Darlene (Hosmer-Storie), her husband Bob, Lisa Lynn (Backus) and brother Billy Hosmer and his wife Kelly, Timothy Ellis and his wife Holly, and brother Michael Ellis.

She also left behind several nieces and nephews.

Crystal always, said that her children were indeed her greatest accomplishments. Crystal’s favorite things to do beside making her family happy, were warm and lazy, windy days.

Crystal enjoyed watching movies, and eating her favorite comfort foods. With her, favorite holiday being Christmas, she would often “go over the top decorating.” Crystal had also shared she had gotten great joy and comfort, from the pets she had loved throughout her lifetime.

Crystal was a wonderful woman who will be dearly missed and cherished always.
