Christine Diss, 90 of Taylorville, formerly of Owaneco, passed away at 10:38 a.m. on Friday, December 4, 2020 at Taylorville Memorial Hospital.

She was born on August 31, 1930 in Pana, the daughter of Herman and Alice Minnette (Schmidt) Carlton. She married Franklin T. Diss on June 22, 1952 in the Owaneco United Methodist Church. Frank preceded her in death on September 7, 2020.

Chris was a long-time member of the Owaneco United Methodist Church. She worked along side her husband on the family dairy farm for many years. Early in her life she worked at the Pana hospital, and later in life, after raising her children, she worked for several years in the Taylorville Jr. High School cafeteria. Chris had a passion for gardening. From planning in the winter months through tending to the garden spring through fall, she loved growing vegetables to share with everyone she knew. There was no doubt that Chris’s greatest love was for her family and her friends.
