Christy M. Dawson

Christy Michelle Dawson, 57, transitioned from labor to reward on Monday, July 3, 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Born on May 1, 1966, Christy entered this world as the beloved last, ninth child and fifth daughter of the late Charles “Bud” Elbert, Sr., and Loyal Jane Elbert.
She completed high school in 1984 through the Boonville R-1 School District and obtained her Associate’s Degree from Pinnacle Career Institute.

Christy possessed a spirited nature filled with both fiery energy and a delightful sense of humor, which brought laughter and smiles to those around her. She lovingly nick-named many family members as a heartfelt expression of love and affection.
Christy married Orlando Hester, Sr. and although their paths later diverged, their union blessed them with three incredible daughters, Marshanna, Brittany, and Lindsey. These precious girls captured Christy's heart and she took every opportunity to proudly celebrate their accomplishments. Christy poured her heart and soul into nurturing her girls with love, teaching them values of respect and showing them the essence of being ladies. They are a true testament to Christy's legacy and serve as her biggest achievement in life. And yes, Christy adorned her daughters with special nicknames, Sissi, Boogie, and Lucy!

Christy loved the Lord, actively serving in the church at St. Matthew's AME Church in Boonville where she was baptized at a young age, and later at Christ Our Redeemer AME Church in Kansas City, MO. As a dedicated member of the Women's Missionary Society, she organized various faith-based events, demonstrating her commitment to sharing God's love.
Left to cherish Christy’s memory are three children, Marshanna Smith (Brian) of Kansas City, MO, Brittany Cross (William) of Columbia, MO and Lindsey Hester of Kansas City, MO; grandsons, Xayvion, Dehmillion and Mahzeen Cross; grand-dogs, Cole Max Hester and Sir King Murphy; siblings, LaDonna Drew, Charles Elbert, Jr. (Sheila), Sherel Elbert (Leta), Gail Thornton, Barry Elbert (Dianne), Stephanie Hutchen and Wanda Trawick (Tyrone); and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
