Christy Sue Crain, 53, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, December 16, 2022 at Grandview Medical Center.
Christy was born in Birmingham, Alabama on April 8, 1969 to James and Martha Crain. She lived in the Birmingham area her entire life attending Wright Elementary and Huffman High School.
Christy loved to cook and was always trying new recipes. She enjoyed listening to music - everything from Elvis and the blues to 80's hits,country and gospel. Christy was a life-long Alabama football fan and enjoyed attending football games including the 1992 and 2009 National Championships. Perhaps most of all, Christy was an animal-lover. She especially loved horses and dogs. The bonds she shared with her long-time pets Mollie, Zowie and most recently, Sadie were like those of a parent and child.
Christy will always be remembered for her fun-loving, spirited, witty personality, her firm opinions, and her love for life. She was a dreamer, a caretaker, a friend, and she loved her family fiercely.
Christy is survived by her parents James "Jim" and Martha "Susie" Crain, sister Cathy (David) Massengill, brother James "Chip" (Marcie) Crain, 5 nieces and nephews, 11 great-nieces and nephews, numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, and loved ones.
Christy is preceded in death by her grandparents Hobart and Ethel Crain and Cecil and Myrtle Lewis.
