Cristi Ann (Remster) Lewis, 50, of Clayton, went peacefully into the comforting embrace of God, on December 30, 2020 after a long and courageous battle with her health. Cristi was born on November 19, 1970 in Indianapolis to Robert Stephen Remster and Sherrie Ann (Cooper) Remster. On December 18, 1993 in the Mooresville First Christian Church, Cristi was united in marriage to Aaron Todd Lewis. This loving union produced her two beloved red heads, Macy and Makenzie Lewis.
Cristi attended Monrovia Schools graduating in 1989. She went on to attend college and cosmetology school where she became a talented nail technician. Cristi had many roles throughout her life such as working for Professional Garage Door, In Trend, and Abstract & Title Company. Above all these positions, Cristi was a devout wife, mother, MiMi, daughter, and friend.
There was not a meal Cristi couldn’t master; to be able to enjoy one of her meals and hospitality was to love her. Her most notable dishes were her homemade chicken and dumplings, apple crisp, hash brown casserole, snickerdoodles, and pot roast. Cristi was extremely creative and could see just about any project through. From helping Macy and Makenzie with their indoor 4-H projects such as flowers or gift wrapping to creating her beautiful wreaths and Christmas trees, Cristi was exceptionally talented.
When not cooking or decorating, Cristi enjoyed vacationing in Florida, watching her favorite Hallmark movies, playing Euchre and Bunco, sitting on her front porch, talking on the phone to her brother, Trevor every day, and working in her yard maintaining her lovely landscaping. Cristi was an incredibly gorgeous woman who could light up any room she walked into. She was always well dressed and had her hair and nails done beautifully. Despite her various health issues she endured throughout her life, she persevered through each of them with grace and strength. She was incredibly faithful and attended Monrovia Christian Church, Plainfield Bible Church, and Hazelwood Christian Church throughout her life.
Cristi did not know a stranger. She could be on a vacation far from home and immediately befriend someone. She was the first to lend a smile to a stranger or give up her place in line at the grocery store. She had a generous heart of gold with a personality and spirit that were one-of-a-kind. Cristi knew just about anyone and everyone; her infectious laugh and witty antics will be greatly missed by all of those who knew and loved her.
Cristi is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Robert and Wanda (Stephen) Remster and her maternal grandparents, William “Bill” and Mary Ermine (Mavity) Cooper; her beloved cousins, Todd and Sandra (Corcoran) Smith; and her precious Maltese, Daffini Marie.
Survivors include her husband of 27 years, Aaron Todd Lewis; beloved daughters, Macy (Walter) Colvin and Makenzie Lewis; father, Steve (Sarah) Remster; mother, Sherrie Remster; cherished brother, Trevor (Angela) Remster; siblings, Bryan (Robyn) Hughes, Amy (Bryant) Hoffer, and Michael (Amber) Hughes; nieces and nephews, Haley, Ella, Dylan, Coleman, Griffin, and Hudson; her bonus son, Kody Sprague and bonus grandchild, Mylan Sprague; her precious poodle, Gidget Rose; and many extended family members and dear friends.
Cristi’s family would like to extend a special thank you to all of the medical professionals who cared for her over the years, but especially her ICU nurses as of recent at Hendricks Regional Health: Christina Barth, Chante Mayfield, Sarah Ross, Lindsay Masters, Joey Harder, and Jaqueline Royer.
To do their part in preventing the spread of COVID, the Lewis family will hold a private family visitation for Cristi. On Thursday, January 7th, 2021 at 11:00 AM Cristi’s funeral service will be live streamed by visiting www.CarlisleBranson.com. Following the funeral service, Cristi will be buried near her family at White Lick Cemetery in Mooresville. In lieu of flowers, Macy and Makenzie have made the decision to start a scholarship fund in their mother's memory that benefits a child who is active in 4-H in both indoor and livestock projects as Cristi was very passionate about helping the girls with their projects. Checks can be made to the Cristi Lewis 4-H Memorial Scholarship Fund, and can be mailed to Carlisle-Branson Funeral Service, 39 East High Street, Mooresville, IN 46158. Please visit www.CarlisleBranson.com to leave an online condolence or to share a favorite memory with Cristi’s family.
