She was also a grandmother of 9 grandchildren who affectionately called her “Winnie.” She is also survived by her siblings, Tim Stewart, Debbie Craul and Buddy Stewart.

Crista was a devout Christian, known for her kind and caring heart. If she was your friend, you were friends forever. A special thanks to my daughter Ashley for her loving care of mom. The family would also like to thank Dr. Drake and his staff, Gentiva Hospice and a very special thanks to Teresa Teel who was with us until she passed.
