Obituary for Kristi Dawn Wattie

Kristi Dawn  Wattie
Kristi Dawn Wattie, age 44, was called from labor to reward on Monday, July 31, 2023, at The James Cancer Center Hospital in Columbus, OH. She was born on January 14, 1979, in Montgomery, WV to Larry and Rhonda Lewis. She graduated from East Bank High School and Carver Career and Technical Education Center. Kristi was a member of St. John Baptist Church where she served in the youth choir and on the championship Bible Bowl Team. Kristi enjoyed serving her community as the manager at the local 7-Eleven in Montgomery and Charleston for several years. After moving to Columbus, she continued her managerial work at the United Dairy Farmers Convenient Store. Thereafter, she served as a caregiver. Kristi never met a stranger and turned most friends into family. Her witty humor and contagious smile will live on forever.

Kristi was preceded in death by her mother, Rhonda Lewis. Special Aunts: Beverly Wattie and Rita Bohanna and Uncles: Grant (June) Lewis, Zachary James Lewis, and Terry Wattie.

Kristi leaves behind to cherish her memory: three children: DeAnte’ Wattie, Zindaya Click, and Kamron Wattie all of Columbus, OH; Father: Larry Lewis of Columbus, Ohio; Two special granddaughters BraeLynn and Bayleigh Wattie of Rand, WV; siblings, Larry Coleman of Huntington, WV; and Krystal Wattie-Bowles (Marion) of Atlanta, GA; along with a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends “Morris Drive Crew”.

Kristi will always be remembered as a devoted mother, grandmother, loving sister, proud aunt, and supportive friend. All will miss her. Expressions of sympathy can be sent to the family at www.odellfuneralhome.com
