Cristy Emison

Mrs. Cristy Elaine Skipper Emison, age 44 of Alamo, passed away Sunday, September 1, 2019 in Jackson Madison County General Hospital. 

She was born July 26, 1975 in Jackson to Gary and Brenda Smith Skipper. Cristy attended Jackson State Community College and later the University of Memphis where she received a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. She worked as a social worker until becoming a full time mom. 

Cristy enjoyed traveling and spending time with her family. She was a leader with Alamo Troop 53. Cristy and Greg were heavily involved in the scouts with their son Sam. Over the last eight years, she was most proud of watching the tiger scouts growing up to now be boy scouts and young leaders in our community. Without  a doubt, Cristy  loved life, her family and all of God’s creatures.
