Obituary

Kristi Diane Gilchrist, age 56 died suddenly March 28, 2015 at her home in Orlando. Private cremation with a life celebration at a later date. Born in Houston, Texas in 1958, Kristi spent much of her life in academic pursuits. She graduated from Wahconah Regional High School in Dalton, MA, class of 1977. Kristi held degrees in Music Therapy and Communications as well as a Master of Divinity and Human Resources. Kristi had a broad and varied career path that included broadcasting, hospital Chaplain, working in the NY public school system and as a Human Resources Manager for several companies. Kristi will forever be remembered for her many talents. Whether painting, writing poetry or playing instruments, her creativity shone. The joy she brought to those around her will be greatly missed. The courage with which she battled mental illness was inspirational to those who knew her. Kristi put all of her energy into living each day with as much love and grace as possible, doing her best to bring joy to those around her. Kristi is survived by her two daughters, Grace and Francis Mell, her life partner Bob Smith and his son Aidan, her mother, Lee Murphy, her sisters Glenda Keiper, Tricia Gilchrist and Katheryn Cote, and 11 nieces and nephews and 8 grand-nieces and nephews.

    Kristi was always such a warm and fun person. I'll always remember her when I go to a pool (as she preferred the pool over the beach), driving in rush hour traffic she was calm and pleasant, but mostly for her fun, witty, and quirky comments on Facebook.

    Kristi, you were such a part of my life and I will never forget all of our crazy times together. There are so many times of joy and laughter, giggles, tears and love. We only reconnected this past year and it breaks my heart that we never had the chance to get together. I will always treasure our times together. You are loved amd rembered with joy.

    In the arms of Jesus Kristi, you are now the angel of those who love you. May your love guide them, heal them, bring them acceptance and by your memories, may they find laughter and light. May God Bless your family and friends.

    i have so many memories of being at the Gilchrist house. Kathy and I probably drove Kristi crazy many times, but she was good to us! Thinking of you all, thank you for being part of my childhood Kristi, (and I can't eat pancakes without thinking of you and smiling!)

    It's the little sister secrets that we shared that I will miss so much and yet keep you forever near - I made that "wrinkled nose face" the other day and instantly thought of how you would know exactly what I meant. And somehow that was comforting and sad at the same time.

    Kristi, no one polkas in the kitchen quite like you, or makes me laugh as much as you. Who will sing show tune duets with me? Until we meet again Kricky... I love you.

    It's been along time since Kristi and I hung around but I'll never forget our years in Sherwood Forrest. She is a great person and will be missed.
