Lees Summit, Missouri - After a long battle with cancer, Christina Jean Obenshain followed her bliss into a new journey. She leaves behind her husband Michael Obenshain and her daughter, Alainna Obenshain. Christina was born in McAlester, OK to father Jackie Craft and mother Barbara Holloway Craft but grew up living everywhere - most notably, Hawaii. She earned a degree from UCM in Broadcast Journalism, with a minor in Theatre. She worked at Starlight Theater and at the KC Rep, and shared this love with her daughter Alainna. Christina had a gigantic pen and office supply collection, and was a kind-hearted, caring woman who provided motherly comfort and compassion to everyone. Her family and friends were everything to her and helped her fight until she was at peace.
Christina is also survived by her parents, her sister Sherri Lord and her brothers Scott and Craig Craft.
Visitation will be held on Monday July 26th from 5:30pm to 7:00pm at Deerbrook Covenant Church in Lee's Summit MO, followed by the Celebration of Life from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. Christina requests that purples, pinks, and reds be worn - as well as masks. In lieu of flowers, please contact the family for donations to help with outstanding medical expenses.
