Christy Leigh Dunlap
(July 10, 1969 - December 23, 2020)
Although a long battle with cancer and a less than average life span, Christy did not live an average life. She traveled often, laughed inappropriately at every chance(mostly with her children), cooked what she wanted to cook and loved who she wanted to love. She left this world with her children by her side and parents whom supported her throughout her entire fight.
She enjoyed being near a fire with loved ones, listening to music, fishing any lake, entertaining groups and spoiling everyone with interesting and outside of the box gifts. She was a true fighter, fearless and proud. She was a talented pool player, and could decorate any space and keep any plant alive.
She was a master cook in the kitchen. Cajun cuisine, crayfish and boiled shrimp were apart of her food pyramid. Tony's was always her secret ingredient. She never used a recipe book but could cook anything and everything in excess and on a whim. She threw the best party and gave the gift of creativity to her children that they will indeed pass down to their own.
Everyone always knew where they stood with her. She liked you or she didn’t, it was black or white with very little gray and she didn’t sugar coat her feelings. She was incredibly proud of each of her children and knew their potential for anything they set their minds to.
She had a great partner taking care of her every need through her battle and for this her children will always be thankful.
She will be eternally missed.
