Obituary of Christy Henwood
Christy's Eulogy as given by Tara Loosbrock Christy Marie Dimler, now Henwood was born on December 30th, 1982, a third daughter for Larry & Ann Dimler. Finally the little blondie that my mom wanted. Christy went to school in Broadview and had a normal and happy childhood around this area, playing with friends and family and helping on the farm. She made some very special lifelong friends. She loved to goof around, be silly and laugh. After graduating high school she attended Siast in Regina for office education course. We were roommates until she moved to Edmonton. She was happy in Edmonton, had a few different office jobs, a beautiful home. I often visited. Our brother Braden moved in with her while apprenticing to be an electrician and died in a tragic accident. Losing Braden broke Christy, she struggled for so many years with emotional pain. As an older sibling you feel this need to protect your younger one. I know this feeling very well. I wanted to save my little sister from all this too. God is the only one who can truly save us. Christy moved back to Regina in 2010, and continued to work as an administrative assistant at various offices. Christy always wished to be a wife and mother. She met Lucas Henwood, the love of her life and married him in October of 2018. On December 29, 2019 her baby girl Rylee was born a month early, which was one day before Christy's 37th birthday. Christy said she was blessed with the best gift ever. Soon after this we learned her cancer was back and not just as a tiny spot on her leg this time, it was in her brain and spine. Christy needed emergency surgery when Rylee was only weeks old. The cancer in her back had caused a fracture causing spinal cord compression. Christy put on a brave face and fought so hard, endured radiation and targeted therapy, traveled to Arizona for intense treatments in hopes of a cure. Instead it only bought us more time. We continued to pray for a miracle. We see now that Christy making it for all of Rylee's firsts was the miracle. I am grateful that she at least got to experience some of the joys of motherhood. Thank you for your love, prayers and even financial support on this journey. Now Christy is free. She fought so hard. Her strength and determination inspired many. I don't understand why it had to be this way. What I do know is that she is free of cancer and pain and with Jesus, and also Braden again. These things give me peace. What I will miss the most is her kindness, sweetness and understanding. Also her laugh, sweet notes and messages. I wish we had more time. I wish as Rylee grows she would have actual memories of her sweet mama. We will need your help in passing on your memories of Christy and her legacy to Rylee so that she will feel like she knew her mommy. Christy loved God. She has several journals with inspirational words of encouragement, prayers and verses in her home. We will cherish them, use them and hold them close. This is one of her sweet notes that she wrote about our Dad on Father’s Day: “Happy Father's Day to the best Dad God could give. Thank you for working so hard to provide for us and still always making time to spend with us. You've encouraged & supported us. Thanks for the values you've taught me. Patience & kindness & heart for God & love you give. Appreciate your funny sense of humor :) you can always make us laugh, even Rylee laughs & smiles her cute little face when Grandpa is around. I love you very much. Have a great day💞” Christy is now with Jesus and reunited with our loved ones who went before her. Christy was predeceased by Grandparents - John & Victoria Dimler and Alex & Elizabeth Kaczmar, Brother - Braden Dimler, numerous Aunts & Uncles. She is survived by her husband Lucas Henwood and daughter Rylee Henwood; father and mother, Larry and Ann Dimler; sisters Shantelle (Mark) Klein, and Tara (Bret) Loosbrock; nieces Jaden & Kaylee Klein; nephews Dane & Seth Loosbrock. Also numerous aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. In Christy’s words from her journal: “I’m grateful that I gave birth to a healthy beautiful girl Rylee. She brings me a lot of joy and look forward to my life raising her and teaching her the word of the Lord and living in His Holy Spirit guidance everyday. Thank you for my parents who have brought me into this world and still look after me and help raise our family to be healthy and God serving. Trusting in Jesus who died for our sins and gave us eternal life so all of us will be together forever in this life and in eternity.” Rest In Peace my sister, my forever friend, until we will be together again. A little bit of my sister will always live in me.
