The life of Christie Lyon was celebrated September 24 at the Key Peninsula Civic Center. Christie was a volunteer lieutenant with Key Peninsula Fire Department in the 1990s and it was here that she met the love of her life, Tracy Lyon.
She was an ardent supporter of the KP and even though she and Gig Harbor Division Chief Lyon made their home in Gig Harbor, her heart and good energy still found its way back to the Key Peninsula. She was one of the founders of the Secret Santa project, which brings gifts to KP families in need.
She was a constant champion for her husband and son Brett. Her love of dock diving and her Labradors were a source of pride and adventure that brought her joy. The only thing that could have topped her favorite pastime was time spent with her grandkids.
Christie was a tenacious woman with a beautiful spirit. She will be missed.
