Christine Edmonds

February 5, 1954 - August 6, 2020

Christine “Christi” Gilmore Edmonds, 66, of Stowell, died August 6th, 2020, at St. Elizabeth Hospital. Christi was a 1972 graduate of Hamshire-Fannett High School, and a lifelong area resident. 

Christi loved to entertain and take care of family and friends. Whether she was cooking one of her homemade meals or baking some of her famous holiday fudge, she was always eager to bring people together for good food and a laugh. Those closest to her felt lucky to have her love and friendship. Christi’s enjoyment in life not only came from her family and friends but her fur babies as well. Her assortment of pets over the years included cats, dogs, a goat, a pig, and a miniature horse named Montana. 

Christi was a force to be reckoned with as whatever she set her mind to, she accomplished. She was known to have a unique artistic ability. Whether she was throwing her kid’s birthday party, painting the cheerleader’s faces, or designing shirts and sweaters for her family and friends, everyone knew that whatever she created was going to be amazing. Above all else, Christi loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Her ideal vacation included the beach, her kids and grandkids, and long, fruitful conversations about what was going on in their lives.  

Christi was preceded in death by her parents, James Arthur Gilmore of Stowell and Ruth Wingate Gilmore of Fannett. She is survived by her partner, Ernie Cokley of Winnie, her three children, Bart Winzer, Keely Edmonds, and Chase Edmonds; her four grandchildren, Baylie Keel and husband Brendon, Aidan Winzer, Abigail Winzer, and Vivian Rollo; her two great-grandchildren, Mila Keel and Baker Keel; her sister, Debbie Colston; and her three nieces, Dawn Guidry, Missy Viator, and Hope Broussard. 

At her request, no public services will be held to avoid a large gathering and protect those she loves from coronavirus. Cremation arrangements were handled through Broussard’s Crematorium under the direction of Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the non-profit foundation, Children Need Families, in her name. Contributions can be made on the Children Need Families website (
