Crystal Jay (Bilyeu) Padgett, 40, Logansport, passed away unexpectedly Thursday morning, December 17, 2020, at home following a severe asthma attack.
Born June 21, 1980, in Monticello, she was the daughter of Terry Bilyeu and the late Ruthie (Hughes) Bilyeu.
A 1998 graduate of Logansport High School, Crystal furthered her education at the Alexandria School of Massage. Throughout the area, Crystal was well-known and in much-demand as a licensed massage therapist. For the past several years, Crystal worked out of the “Hair-to-Dye For” Salon on High Street. With her sweet, calming persona, Crystal had found the perfect job. She loved caring for people and making them feel better.
Fun and energetic, Crystal loved life. Her family meant everything to her. Crystal’s family extended beyond her own kin and included many friends, co-workers and clients. In one of her last posts on Facebook, Crystal wrote, “It’s not about gifts this year. It’s about love, family, a warm home, with full cabinets. That’s what I am Thankful for this year!!!” Crystal would want you to take the measure of kindness that she shared with others to make the world a better place.
Surviving with her father Terry Bilyeu and step-mother, Donna Scott, of Burlington, Wisconsin, are two children, Kali Bilyeu and Isaiah Padgett, both of Logansport; one brother, Daniel (Sabrina) Bilyeu, of Bunker Hill; her much-loved grandchildren, Livi Masters and Anakin Pickering; her aunt, Vicki (Michael) Menard; and her nieces, Jaymee and Jaylin, and nephews, Jaydan and Jaycob.
In addition to her mother, Crystal was preceded in death by her brother, Dustin Bilyeu.
Friends will be received from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, December 22 in Fisher Funeral Chapel. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, masks and social distancing guidelines will be in place. Current guidelines allow for up to 50 people at the gathering, so guests are asked to pay their respects and exit the chapel to allow for others to enter safely.

The family would like to thank the community for the outpouring of love and donations received that have helped them so much during this time of loss.
