Kristi Cranwell

Hays - Kristi Cranwell, 50 of Hays, formerly of Chapman passed away October 12, 2021 at Hays Medical Center. She was born in Junction City April 29, 1971, the daughter of Gary and Marge (Hall) Gfeller. She grew up in the Chapman area, graduating from Chapman High School in 1989. She went on to receive a Bachler's degree in Ag Business at Kansas State University and her Masters of Science at the University of Nebraska. She worked in sales for Woofter Construction and Irrigation Company in Colby. She was also an adjunct professor of agriculture at Fort Hays State University. On March 5, 1996, she was united in marriage to Clyde Cranwell in Las Vegas, Nevada. She was many things to many people, but Kristi was best at being a mom. She served everyone in such a personal way and there isn't a person who met Kristi that doesn't have a fond memory of her. She was a giver to all and brought energy into every room she entered. She loved nothing more than spending time outside in the sun when she wasn't busy shuffling kids around. She loved reading, church, and her family. She was a motivator, mentor and supporter that leaves both a legacy and an irreplaceable void in the hearts of the many people she touched. Kristi is survived by her loving husband Clyde of the home and five daughters, Amanda, Emily, Megan, Haley, and Kaycee. She also leaves behind her parents, one brother, Steve (Christa) Gfeller of Chapman and two sisters, Sally (Dr. Kenny) Johnson of Assaria and Dr. Kim (Kelly) Kirkham of Hugoton as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be 2:00 P.M., Saturday, October 16, 2021, at the Alida Upland Co-Op Church, 2243 3300 Ave, Junction City, KS, with Pastor Allen Hodges officiating. Burial will follow at the Alida Church. Family will receive friends Friday evening from 6-8 P.M. at the Londeen-Overlease Funeral Chapel in Chapman. The family suggests memorials be given to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation or to the Kansas 4-H Foundation. Memorials may be dropped off at the funeral home or mailed to Londeen-Overlease Funeral Chapel, PO Box 411, Chapman, Kansas 67431. Online condolences may be sent to www.londeenfuneralchapel.com
