Born in: Owensboro, KY
Resided in: Owensboro, KY

Chrisie Mattingly, 56, of Owensboro, KY passed away Friday, April 9, 2021 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. She was born in Owensboro on June 16, 1964 to Lana Hall Chenault and William Joseph “B.J” Fulkerson. She worked at Ragu for 17 years and attended First Free Will Baptist in Owensboro.

As someone who never met a stranger, Chrisie loved making people laugh; a comedian in her own mind. She had a true love for animals, especially her dogs Tucker and Olivia. Chrisie had a very good memory, perhaps photographic, and could find joy in anything she did. Full of life, Chrisie was always singing, and had quite the beautiful voice. A lover of music, she also learned to play the guitar. The beach was a favorite place for her to escape to. Larger than life. Creative. Big hearted. Loving. Adjectives which encompass the beautiful life that was Chrisie’s.

Chrisie is preceded in death by her step-father, Robert Chenault; grandparents, Mary Jo Fulkerson, William Fulkerson, Louise Hall, Jake Hall and Lockie Mattingly

She is survived by her husband of 21 years, Jeff Mattingly; children Kandice (Bobby) Gray, Ryan (Stephanie) Burr and Lindsay (Cindy Downey) Mattingly; grandchildren Kennedy Burr, Gage Luttrell, London Burr, Keelie Burr, Ryleigh and Kenley Downey; siblings, Debbie (Roger) Kittinger, Randy (Kim) Fulkerson, Tammy (Dean) Ward, and Krystle Shock; aunt Carolyn Chenault; mother and father-in-law, Jim and Evelyn Mattingly; brother-in-law Greg Mattingly; sisters-in-law Gayle Jackson and Rhonda (Richard) Beck; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
