Christine Popplewell, 89, passed away September 4, 2021. 

Born on March 2, 1932 in Harlan, KY and was the daughter of the late John Henson and Gertrude McSpadne Henson. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Arlis Popplewell; 10 siblings; step daughter, Vernell Harrison; and sons-in-law, Ed Kimble and William Gary Grubbs, Sr.

Christine enjoyed playing bingo at St. Boniface Church in Northside as well as the "rip off's" along with her bingo friends. She cherished her family especially her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and her great-great grandchildren. She attended Marshall Avenue Assembly of God before her health declined. Christine loved flowers and enjoyed sitting on her porch admiring their beauty. She had a heart of gold and would go out of her way to ensure her family was happy and she will certainly be missed. 

Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Regina Owens (Ed), Tom Popplewell (Ginger), Rita Popplewell, Renita Kimble, Terry Popplewell, and Tim Popplewell; sister, Clara Henson; 19 grandchildren, 45 great grandchildren, and 4 great-great grandchildren along with one on the way.
