Life Story / Obituary
On February 24th, 2018, the world lost a truly remarkable person. Chris Moffitt passed away unexpectedly in her home. It is hard to find words to adequately describe the magnitude of this loss, but she leaves behind a beautiful story of strength, resilience, and above all else - love. Anyone who knew her can attest to her selfless nature and truly giving spirit. She would give anything and everything she had to make sure her children and grandchildren didn’t go without. Through the years, she made several sacrifices in order to provide the best life for her children and to brighten the lives of those she cared about. She strived to make her home a warm, welcoming and cozy place for all who entered through her door. Chris loved the holidays. Her children will fondly remember the effort, love, and care she put into creating a magical atmosphere for their family celebrations. Christmas was definitely one of her favorites. She loved to cook and bake, and would never come to a gathering empty-handed. Chris also loved yard sales and resale shops and took great pride in finding “a good deal”. Her favorite things to look for were items she knew her family would love. She also enjoyed crocheting, playing card and computer games, and watching her favorite shows and movies. One of her greatest prides was her kids. Chris single-handedly raised four children - Kevin, Jamie, Jessie, and Jen. She worked tirelessly to give them a life full of love and traditions. The same love and traditions that shaped their lives will live on in all they do for their own children. This would be her greatest hope.
Everyone she met knew how much she adored her grandchildren; Justus, Grayson, Hudson, Logan, Jase, Addison, and Julian. One of the most beautiful things about Chris was the way her face lit up at the sight of them. Nana always had a way of bringing sunshine into their world. She loved to shower them with treats and gifts. More than anything else, she loved to put a smile on their face and happiness in their heart. She wanted nothing more than to watch them grow. We are certain she will continue to do this as she smiles down from heaven. Chris also leaves behind Clayton, her special partner with whom she hoped to share her life. The hopes and dreams they shared together gave her a renewed zest for life and her children could see her newfound excitement and anticipation for the future.
Her family and friends will remember her most for her playful and sarcastic sense of humor. She loved to laugh. Her loved ones will always remember the sound of her laughter and her bright smile. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. She put her whole heart into all she did with relentless strength and perseverance. While searching through her box of beloved photos, her children found an old newspaper clipping that contained a poem with the following quote. It truly sums up the legacy she hoped to leave behind:
“If by chance you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs it. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever.”
A private family service will be held at a later date. MEMORIAL: In lieu of flowers, please consider giving to Love Inc.
