Cristi Lea Criswell, 53, died Oct. 12, 2013, in Farmington, Ark. Her graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday at Glenwood Cemetery in Perkins. Strode Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Cristi was born on March 8, 1960, in Blackwell, to Earl James and Lucretia (Whitmire) Criswell. She attended Morrison schools and after graduating, moved to Stillwater, where she spent most of her life. Cristi was a proud mother of three children and gloated proudly over her six grandchildren.  

Cristi, our dear daughter, sister, mother, aunt, grandma and friend, your loving heart and caring soul will be missed. We enjoyed our time with you and you were a blessing to us all and will be truly missed. You made us laugh and cry. You held us close and pushed us away when we needed. Your endless thoughtfulness of others will always be what we remember most about you.

She is preceded in death by her father, Earl Criswell; her paternal grandparents, Jean and Kellis Wickham; Ellis Whitmire; uncle, Everette Whitmire; and grandmother, Lou Sang.

Cristi is survived by her parents, Daryl and Lucretia Sang; two sons, Chris Criswell and Brett Findley; daughter, Courtney Skinner; six grandchildren, Jayden and Jacob Hughes, Dylan and Lane Findley, Baylie and Tyler Skinner; brother, Jamie Criswell; sisters, Dana McCubbin and Erin Tipton; three stepbrothers, Bobby, Ricky, and Steve Cox; as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
