Patricia Lynn Christie, 84, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016 at Prestonwood Nursing Home in Plano. She was born on Sept. 28, 1931 in Corsicana to James Floyd and Ruby Laura Harper.

She was a member of the Pink Ladies Auxiliary at Navarro Regional Hospital and the Senior Circle.

She worked many years for First National Bank in Corsicana before retiring.

Christie and wife, Krissy of Plano; granddaughter Kate Christie of Plano and granddaughter, Abigail Christie Kiel and husband, Ryan of Stephenville; her sister, Mary Speck and husband, Bob of Richmond, Texas; sisters-in law, June Christie, of Austin and June Harper, of Houston and numerous nieces and nephews.
