Cristie Ann Hatem Hupp, 66 of New Lexington, Ohio passed away on Thursday, May 12, 2022 at the Genesis-Perry County Emergency Room, Somerset, Ohio.

Born August 11, 1955 in Nelsonville, Ohio to the late John G. & Margaret Emory Hatem.

Cris was a Christian by faith, her love for God and conviction to do what is right, was ever present through her actions. Her family was absolutely the most important thing in her life. She loved them fiercely, with all her heart. Cris had many friends; was very active in her community; she never knew a stranger you were just a new family member to her. You would sit down with her to share an iced tea, or a coffee and if you were lucky a piece of her baklava. Her laugh was contagious, her deep dimples in full force, and when you were around her, you were at ease and always smiling so hard it hurt. The sound of her raspy voice and her care free attitude drew you in like a magnet. She worked for the New Lexington School System as a Paraprofessional for many many years and truly cherished all the kids, her coworkers and her job. To know Cris was to know the brightest light and the deepest love, her radiance will continue to shine in our hearts and minds. As we remember her let’s pass on her favorite greeting and goodbye, a hug with both hands and squeeze harder!

Survived by her daughters, Nichole (Shawn) Rooney and Kim Hupp (Tyler Simpson) all of Lancaster; her sister, Amy Carter; grandchildren, Ethan, Noah, Mya Cristie, Tatyana and Brooklyn; nephew and niece, Tim & Jan and many cousins.

Preceded in death by her parents, John G. & Margaret Emory Hatem.
