Kristina Marie “Krissi” Davis, known to family and close friends as “ChiChi”, age 51, of Noblesville, Indiana, passed away unexpectedly on September 7, 2019.
Krissi was born September 4, 1968 to Richard & Leah Davis. She is survived by her parents; four siblings, Cindi Hood (Jeff), Patti (JR), Mike (Bobbi) and Andy (Kathy); her Person, Kim Blair; numerous nieces & nephews; and a great-nephew.
A lifelong resident of Noblesville and a graduate of Noblesville High School, class of 1987, Krissi received a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Notre Dame and earned her MBA from DePaul University. She was part-owner and 25 year employee of Davis-Haslam Inc.
As a basketball player for the Noblesville Millers - a senior captain for the 1987 undefeated state champion team, Krissi was named an Indiana All-Star. She was a two-time inductee into the IHSAA Basketball Hall of Fame. She was a four-year letterman and a two-time MVP for the University of Notre Dame Women’s Basketball Team. Krissi graduated as the program’s 7th all-time leading scorer with 1,194 points. And, she was a recipient of the Byron V. Kanaley Award, the most prestigious honor presented to a Notre Dame Senior athlete and leader.
There was the Krissi Davis that everyone knew from her athletic accomplishments. Her family wants you to remember her heartfelt passions, such as Best Friends Animal Society and the Noblesville Elks #576, who named her Elk Member of the Year in 2018. She was an avid creator, Blue Tick Publisher, journalist, photographer, woodworker, and always up for an adventure. ChiChi adored her two dogs, Maggie and Roxy and she was happiest in the outdoors. Krissi was fiercely loyal and she could defuse any situation with wit and sarcasm. She was a leader by example; she let her work speak for itself. If you were a true friend, you will miss a night with “Hitty” Krissi. She was one of a kind. Her dimples were unforgettable and Krissi was kind of a Big Deal!
