Christine Murphree Burt, 92, passed away peacefully at North Mississippi Medical Center Extended Care in Pontotoc on Thursday, August 22, 2019. Born and raised in the “village” of Reid on January 6, 1927, she was the daughter of the late Forrest L. Murphree and the late Maudie Stribling Murphree.

On September 14, 1946, she married William Tryon Burt upon his return from WWII, and they spent 55 wonderful years together until his passing in 2001. After high school, Christine rode the train from Houlka to Memphis to Draughon’s Business College, where she received her Degree. During her career, she was a teaching assistant, office manager, and even picked cotton early in life. She liked to keep her hands busy, whether it was cooking, antiquing, or gardening. She was an expert seamstress. She also served her community as the Election Commissioner for Calhoun County and spent many late nights working at the courthouse. She believed in hard work and dedication, and thought with that anyone can accomplish anything they want.
Her family and friends will miss her dearly, but they find comfort in knowing that she is now rejoicing in her Heavenly home.
