Melvina Faye Christy, a lifelong resident of Kingfi sher, passed away at her home on Sept. 12, 2023 at the age of 84.

She was born Feb. 27, 1939, to Theodore “Ted” Christy and Eleanor (Forbes) Christy in Kingfisher.

She is survived by her sister Madeline Begg of Great Bend, Kan.; brother Teddy Don “Topper” Christy and wife Kaye of Bethany; sister-in-law Margie Christy of Cashion; niece Theresa Homier of Kingfisher; nephew Wayde Klingsick of Tulsa; nephew Craig Christy of Calera; niece Diana Dawson of Great Bend, Kan.; nephew Daniel Fantinel of Hobart; niece Jennifer Hammond of Clinton; niece Julie Goucher of Clinton, along with many great- and great-great-nieces and nephews.
