Born in Denver, Colorado, Christy's life was filled with a diverse tapestry of experiences and discoveries. She passionately studied and lived God's word every single day, serving others as both a teacher and student, an artist, and an avid gardener. She blessed and ministered to countless thousands with her love, through every wedding cake and 'yummy' creation she baked.

Christy Rae had a deep love for discovering God's beautiful world with her husband through travel and adventure, praising Him while marveling at every awesome cloud, sunrise, and sunset. She cherished her moments with grandchildren and had a passion for animals, especially horses.
