    Crystal Glee Duff Langford, 86 of Victoria, Virginia was welcomed into the arms of her loving and gracious Lord on August 6, 2022. She was born April 30, 1936 to Ross and Meda Duff of Buckley, Michigan. Crystal was a devoted wife for 57 years to the late Rev. Clark E. Langford. She truly was a pastor’s wife, she was gentle, kind, loving, and forgiving. She, alongside her husband, served the church of the Nazarene for 53 years. She played the piano, organ, accordion, sang, taught Sunday School, and was the church secretary for many years. Anyone who knew Crystal usually received a letter once a week. She did this for many years until her eyesight failed her and she was no longer able to write. She used her writing skills to minister to her family, friends, and acquaintances until she was in her 80’s. Her letter writing was her true ministry, and she used her letters to glorify the Lord. One never received a letter from her that she did not praise or uplift the name of her Lord. Crystal leaves behind her 3 children, Garry C. Langford (Kathy), Joddy V. Langford (Boo), and Heidi L. Dove (Douglas), 8 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother Keith Duff, sister Beth D. Hooper and daughter-in-law Katherine H. Langford. What a blessing a family has when they have a mother, wife, sister, grandmother like Crystal. She will be truly missed, but we know she is happy in the arms of her Savior. Visitation will be August 13th at Victoria Church of the Nazarene 11:00-12 with the funeral immediately following. The family would like to thank all the nurses and caregivers who have taken care of Crystal in her last years. The family would like to request those who wish to express sympathy to make a donation to the Victoria Church of the Nazarene, or Village to Village (
