McKaylynn Crowl

Print Obituary
McKaylynn Marie Crowl, 22, of Freeburg, IL, born February 4, 1999, in Belleville, IL, to Brandi Ross and Timothy Crowl, passed away Friday, March 19, 2021, as the result of an accident.

She loved spicy foods, sushi, crappy Chinese food, blueberry Red Bull, pickles of any variety, and she never missed an episode of Greys Anatomy.  She loved her younger sister, Elsie. She was always quick to help Elsie with her homework. They loved to sing, dance, and color together.

She was a new mother to two amazing six-month-old twin boys. They were her whole world. Wyatt, who looks just like her, is a miniature McKaylynn, and for that we are forever thankful. Oliver is going to be the wild one and we see McKaylynn’ s spunky attitude in him every day.

Brandi, McKaylynn’s mother, solely raised McKaylynn, and the two were best friends.  McKaylynn was a younger version of Brandi in every way. They often butted heads but loved each other unconditionally and deeply. They loved vacationing and the beach and enjoyed camping, floating, and going to stock car races all while McKaylynn was growing up and into adulthood.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Larry Ross; two great-grandmother, Anna (Woodrow) Grebenick, and Nola Ross; and a great-grandfather, Nelson Ross;

Surviving are her adorable sons, Wyatt and Oliver, whom she loved deeply; her mother, Brandi Ross; her father, Timothy Crowl; a sister, Elsie; her maternal grandparents, Charlie (Roberta) Miller; an uncle and aunt, Nick (Nikky) Miller; the father of her children, Justin Wilson; her best friend, Juli Thornton; long-time “sister” Kylie Boring; and extended family, Kim Gallagher, Robin (Daddy Dave) Boring, and Shelby Wilson.

She left us with so many memories that we will share with the boys, so they know how amazing their mother was.

In lieu of flowers, memorial may be made to the Oliver and Wyatt Wilson Fund, in care of Brandi Ross, at Citizens Community Bank, Freeburg, IL. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.rennerfh.com.

Visitation:  Friends may visit from 2 to 5 p.m. Monday, March 22, 2021, at George Renner & Sons Funeral Home, Freeburg, IL. Standard CDC guidelines, including masks and social distancing will be observed.

Funeral:  A memorial service will be held at 5 p.m. Standard CDC guidelines will be observed, including a limited number of guests in the building. A dinner and celebration of life will immediately follow in the back room of TRs Place, 4901 Concordia Church Road, Belleville IL.

Condolences:

Brandi I do not know how to say what I feel. She was a wonderful lady. I have not seen her for 4 years. But remember how she fit in with all our family that day. After the babies were born, she sent me pictures of them every week. So sweet, so adorable. I could tell she was so proud of them. This was such a tragedy and so unexpected. Just know how deeply sorry I am. Such a loss. Love from her Great Grandma Pat

Brandi, I am so completely saddened about Mckaylynn's death. You are a wonderful mother and you always remained her best friend. She was always full of joy and brightness and a really good and honest person to be around. I don't know the right words..... I am thankful that she was in my and my kid's life, and I am so sorry that she is gone from you. Forgive me if my words aren't saying what my heart feels.

Brandi, I can't find nearly enough words to explain how heartbroken I am. I'm so beyond thankful to have met McKaylynn and be in her life, and have her be a part of mine. There's not a day that'll go by where I won't be thinking of her, you, or Elsie. If you need anything at all please reach out to me or my mom, we would be more than happy to help with anything.

Our deepest condolences to Brandi, Elsie, Grandma Berta and Grandpa Charlie, and family. This is such a tragic loss at such a young age. McKaylynn was a very sweet and thoughtful person throughout her childhood and into her adulthood. She had an awesome smile and always made people around her feel special. She was very proud of Wyatt and Oliver and loved them very much - McKaylynn not being able watch them grow up is so very sad. She will be greatly missed by all of us and never forgotten! In sympathy and love, Aunt Debbie and Uncle Charles
