LOVELL — Christine D. “Chris” Craig, 58, of Lovell passed away after battling a long illness Tuesday morning, Sept. 12, in the comfort of her own home with family at her side.
She was born Dec. 10, 1958, in Dorchester, Mass., a daughter of Thomas A. and Carol (Carey) Thomson. Chris attended school in Massachusetts and moved to Maine in the early 1970s and graduated from Fryeburg Academy.
Chris married Stephen “Diz” Craig at the Village Church on June 7, 1975. They made their home in Lovell, as he worked locally and she in North Conway as a paralegal for many years, eventually owning and operating her own office, Legal Eagles.
As a younger woman, she was a member of the Lovell Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and was always willing to provide baked goods to help support people in the community. She was a fun-spirited, fiery redhead who enjoyed being a homemaker to her husband, loved cooking, spending time with her “grands,” cuddling with her 1-year-old chocolate Lab, reading and being at camp on Kezar.
Chris is survived by her mother, Carol Craig, and her husband, Maynard of Lovell; her husband, Stephen “Diz” Craig of Lovell; two daughters, Lauri McGrath and her husband, Matthew of Lovell, and Carey “JoJo” Craig and her wife, Jodi of Lewiston; two grandchildren, McKenna and Brody; a sister, Corinne J. Whitaker of Conway; a brother, Robert M. Thomson of Tamworth; and many extended family members including, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her father, Thomas Thomson; and an infant brother, Thomas Thomson Jr.
