Kristi Leigh Wilson Appling

CULLMAN — Kristi Leigh Wilson Appling

Funeral services for Kristi Leigh Wilson Appling of Cullman, previously of Gardendale, will be at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, at Ridout’s Gardendale Chapel, the Rev. Frank Wood officiating.

Ridout’s Gardendale Chapel is in charge of arrangements.

Mrs. Appling went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and her recently deceased mother, Jean Wilson, Sunday, Jan. 6. Kristi was a graduate of Gardendale High School and Beville State Community College. She was a beloved daughter, a dedicated and loving mother, a wonderful sister, and loved by her extended family and friends. Kristi was a nurse for 16 years and touched and changed many lives during her short time here on earth. She had a smile and outer beauty that would light a room, and an inner beauty that made her extraordinary. Kristi’s absence will place a large void and sadness in our hearts and lives. She was her Daddy’s little fox and our Dizzy. We will miss her!

She was preceded in death by her mother, Jean Wilson; and her grandparents: Julian (Sadie) Collins and Jimmy (Elsie) Wilson.

Survivors include her two sons, Peyton Appling and Hunter Appling; her daughter, Mackenzie Appling; her father, Don Wilson; two brothers: Red (Leslie) Wilson and Jeremy Wilson; her sister, Donna (Robert) Gonzales; three nephews: Blake Gonzales, Dustin Gonzales and Riley Wilson; and two nieces: Kayleigh Gonzales and Macy Wilson.

Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.

The family would like to give special thanks to her cousin and caregiver, Tracy Crump; and the staff of Omega Hospice for providing them with the care and compassion that Kristi performed herself so passionately, as a hospice nurse for Gentiva Hospice.
