The last week of her life Crista and her nurse were chatting about life, Crista said “these days my fun is ‘Looking for the Silver Lining’ because there is always one.” Her last words were “I’m good, I’m ready for ‘THE WEDDING’, with God”. She will be missed by all who loved her. Rest in Peace Sweet Angel.

Crista is survived by her parents, Don and Jan Chiles of Lamesa; brother, Cary Chiles of Colorado Springs, Colorado; aunts, Sherry “Jeannie” (John) Frantz of Hartley and Ann Fox (Fred) of Vernon; uncle, Jimmy Boyd of Quanah; numerous cousins and friends.

She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Carlos and Leah “Shortie” Chiles and John and Margie Boyd; infant sister, Tammie Diane; uncle, Gary Chiles; and aunts, Judy (Guy) Edminson Foster and Lynda Boyd.

The family would like to thank everyone that has blessed them with the support, gifts, cards and prayers.
