Kristi Marie Johnson went to meet her Lord and loved ones on February
16, 2023 after a relentless four-year battle with cancer. Born September 10,
1973, Kristi lived in Waxahachie her entire life and was a life-long member
of the Ferris Heights United Methodist Church. After graduating from
Waxahachie High School in 1991, Krist worked in bookkeeping and

Kristi could be described as a determined and passionate woman who was
fiercely protective of those she loved. Her favorite pastime was being a
devoted grandmother to her two, almost-two-year-old, grandchildren Aela
Jo and Grayson Reed. She was an avid Dallas Cowboy and pro-football
fan - she watched Super Bowl LVII from her hospital bed the Sunday before
she passed away.. She loved to shop and enjoyed being a “dog mom” to
her two German short-haired pointers Lincoln and Remington. And one of
her favorite family memories - pre-grandchildren - was roasting hot dogs on
Sunday evenings at her great-grandparents’ home place.
Kristi is survived by her father Ken Johnson and his wife Lea of
Waxahachie; her mother Marie Wilson and husband Rusty of Forrestburg;
her son Tyler Wayne Milligan, wife Poni, and their son Grayson of
Waxahachie; her other son Kenneth Dexter Milligan and his daughter Aela
Jo of Waxahachie; and numerous special aunts, uncles, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents Kenneth and Jo Johnson
of Waxahachie, grandmother Gracie Cumins of Waxahachie, and
great-grandparents Charles and Leona Walker of Waxahachie.
