Obituary

Christy



Arden - Carol Christine Christy McDivitt, 50, of Arden, died Sunday, May 11, 2008, from injuries sustained in an auto accident on Long Shoals Road.

A native of Sterling, Ill., she was a daughter of Emma Ivey McDivitt and the late Everett McDivitt, of Morrison, Ill. A graduate of the American Institute of Holistic Theology, she had resided in the Asheville area for the past 20 years and was a grower for Van Wingerden Greenhouses of Horseshoe, N.C.

Christy loved horticulture, natural healing, naturalism, spirituality and great music - especially the blues.

Surviving in addition to her mother are daughters, Amanda Trancoso (Josh) Mack, of Leicester, Tina Marie (Adam Bazzle) Trancoso and Elizabeth Kate McDivitt, both of Arden; brothers, Ron (Linda) McDivitt, Mike (Linda) McDivitt, both of Morrison, Ill., Terry (Carolyn) McDivitt, of South Beloit, Ill., Pat (Patty) McDivitt, of Milan Ill., and Tom (Luann) McDivitt, of Prophetstown, Ill.; sister Bonnie (Chris) Schnaiter, of Mendota, Ill.; granddaughters, Eden and Ivy Mack.

Services were held Monday at the Unity Center in Fletcher, N.C. and other services will be held later in Illinois.

Christy had a beautiful smile and a great spiritual presence. She touched the lives of everyone she knew. A beloved daughter, sister, mother and boo-boo, she is cherished in both life and spirit.

Asheville Mortuary Services is caring for the McDivitt family.

what a beautiful woman.

i am so thankful that i was able to "meet" her through you...

your family has my sympathy and love, and i know for a fact that your mother is going on to do great things in Spirit, for her children her on the earth..

we don't merit any of her love and beauty, but something tells me that she extends this also to people who *aren't* directly her off-spring...

your family should be blessed.

be well.
*hugs*
- me.

Thank you so very much. Wow, I really do think you've gotten to 'meet' her if you know her so well already. I really believe you're right. As Josh said, "This is only the beginning of what we'll see from her."

Thank you again.

No, there haven't been for a while. The love is plenty, though. It helps the vast silence. lol

Thank you so much.

Oh hon.. I'm so sorry. I was really hoping she'd pull through. What a beautiful obituary, though. My thoughts are with you and your family
ahavah

I was too, but I know it's better she didn't. She'd have hated living that way.

Thank you, though. I hope it was beautiful. I desperately wanted her to have more than the one paragraph blurb the news gave her after she died. :(

Thank you for sharing. If an obituary can be thought of as beautiful, that one is. (As an aside, I am in South Beloit, Illinois).

You and your family are in my thoughts.

Thanks so much. I did try to capture her essence, as best a few words could.

You're in South Beloit? How very odd. We'll be heading up to IL, possibly around July 4, to do another service with her ashes. We may make it a long, languorous journey. Would you want to meet up sometime when we're next up?

I wish I could have met her in "real life". Being 50 years on this planet is long enough to have a massive effect upon it. She did very well, with you, and with the earth.

blessings,

dix

She definitely had massive effects. I'm honored that you think she did well with me. I was just the first draft, afterall. ;)

Thank you!

hey mrs mack. i keep meaning to call, but keep getting caught up in my own shit. :\ know that you've been in my thoughts, and know that i know that hasn't helped. :) (((you)))

strangely enough, i thought about the obit just this evening. it's beautiful. of course.

*kiss*

Hee hee. The Mrs./wifey thing just never seems to get old.

Actually, it does help. I've been so grateful for all the thoughts and prayers.

I'm glad you like the obit. I mainly filled out their form, but I tried to make it as personalized for her as possible.
