Liberty Crisp

Obituary of Liberty F. Crisp

Liberty F. Crisp was born on March 17, 1982 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to James and Janice Dobson.  She was preceded in death by her father.  She is survived by her husband Mike Crisp, daughter Taylor and young son Emmett, mother Jan, and sister Holly Jordan.  Her mother-in-law, Cindy Crisp, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews mourn and miss her. 

Liberty’s childhood was mobile due to her father’s career as a restaurant man.  She lived in Wisconsin and Ohio before moving to Saudi Arabia at age seven.  Riyadh was her home for two years, Jeddah for six.  For her whole life she remained close to many good friends she met in Saudi.  In her teen years she returned to life in the U.S. and reconnected with the love of her life, Mike.  After marrying they lived in North St. Paul, Minnesota. 

A creative person in many ways, Liberty was a gifted cook from a young age and was especially renowned for her delicious chocolate chip cookies.  Her artistically decorated sugar cookies were also in constant demand. In her early twenties she collected hundreds of recipes and compiled a family cookbook.  Crafting was another of her creative joys.  She fashioned intricate and beautiful Christmas stockings, holiday aprons, and all manner of handmade keepsakes for friends and family. In her final months she had begun making illustrations for bedtime stories that she listened to and loved as a little girl.    

Her lively sense of humor always made laughter a part of Liberty’s life.  She enjoyed interactive video games with a closeknit online community, antiquing in Stillwater, organizing holiday events, trying new recipes, and a million other things that enriched her life and the lives of others.  Above all else, she treasured home and family.  She loved being a mom and was devoted to her children.  Liberty will be forever missed, forever loved.
