Our beloved Christie Anne (Belk) Powell was born on July 6, 1954, to Dorothy Lee Belk in Los Angeles County, California. Christie resided in Little Elm, Texas, and received her Heavenly wings on September 21, 2021, at the age of 67.
Christie, a child of God, loved serving the Lord through her biblical studies and various ministries throughout her church. She was a member of New Life Community Church in Frisco, Texas. She loved meeting people, building friendships, and supporting others. Her loving, energetic, fun-spirited, and larger-than-life personality was embraced by her family and friends. One of her greatest joys was supporting her grandchildren’s talent for playing basketball. She was always there as one of their biggest cheerleaders.
Christie held various careers in the healthcare industry throughout her life. In 2007, she opened an in-house daycare in Irving, Texas, to help support low-income single mothers. She retired in 2013 and joined her daughter and family in Little Elm, Texas.
Christie had a love for academia and completed many courses throughout her life’s journey. She was a role model and motivation for her children’s success in completing higher academic achievements.
Christie was preceded in death by her mother, Dorothy Lee Belk. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends. Her life and legacy will continue to be celebrated by her son, Christian Garrett; daughter, Devona Garrett-Smith (Tyron Smith); stepson, Reginald Powell; grandson, Garrett Smith; granddaughters - Christyanna Garrett, Soijer Smith, and Madysyn Smith; sisters - Brenda Belk, Sandra Youngblood, and Vickie Youngblood; a host of nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and friends; and her furry daughter, Shera.
