Kristie Marie Ivey Pettit Obituary
KRISTIE MARIE IVEY PETTIT Kristie Marie Ivey Pettit passed away peacefully, Wednesday, December 7, 2016, unexpectedly from very complicated health issues. She was born a mere 4 lbs. in Corning, Ca, on November 24, 1968 to Paula Bates Ivey and Jerry Lawrence Ivey. She attended Pleasant Valley High School and earned a Medical Assistant certificate, using those skills in medical billing employment. That basic knowledge developed into a career as a marketing-purchasing agent in Southern California and later at Rolling Hills Casino. Extreme health issues precluded her further employment and no longer able to drive, she spent her remaining years homebound. Her devastating health did not hamper her activities however, as she made 'lemonade out of life's lemons' - with gusto! Horses have always paced through her soul, with Chocolate Man, nuzzled by her beloved Twilight, at the front of her herd. She had been able to compete in distance competitions of up to 50 miles, trail rides and training and most recently, celebrated being able to participate in organized trail rides, camp outs and even compete in trail trial competition. Through the respect and generosity of her caring friends, she and her horses were taken to horse events, where she won many different competitions and was recognized as an accomplished horsewoman. Kristie was caring, loving and devoted to all aspects of her world, with family at the top of the list; shopping with family, family get-togethers, trips and all sporting events involving family and even friends of the family! While Kristie didn't make five feet tall, she was a mighty little force to be reckoned with when championing any cause that she took exception to, expressing herself with the fiery passion of what she perceived as right or wrong. Kristie loved to read, cook, crochet, and research any little piece of knowledge that might make a difference in the lives of others, sharing recipes, horse and human health remedies, and the latest known information on any subject. With a lovable sense of humor, she often shared jokes and pictures just to put a 'smile' into someone's day. Her infectious joy was contagious when sharing the latest adventures of her two grandsons, Jerry and Sebastian. Kristie has joined her father, Jerry Ivey and her brother, Jimmy Lawrence Ivey in heaven. She is survived by the love of her life, her husband, Zack Pettit, and her precious son, Jayce Ivey Pettit; her mother, Paula Ivey; a daughter, Shaeley Robinson and Shaeley's son, Jerry Cobos; a son, Cody Boutelle (Jessica) and their son, Sebastian Boutelle. Kristie leaves a brother, Jeremy Ivey and his daughters Emma and Carmen; a sister, Dawn (Tim) and their sons, Tyelar and Chance. She is also survived by her godparents, Bob and Kathi Theile. Kristie had an overwhelming sense of caring and loving; she will continue to be in our hearts forever. A Celebration of Life is planned in the Spring. Condolences can be made on Kristie's Facebook page.
