Christiane “Chris” Henry Novotny, age 79, of Saucier, MS passed away Sunday May 8, 2022.
Chris was born in Metz, France to the late Pierre and Hedwige Henry on April 3, 1943. She was married to the love of her life for 61 years.
Chris was a seamstress by trade, retiring in 2005, but continued her passion for sewing for family and friends: one pillow, one blanket and one dish towel at a time. Her sense of humor was like no other and her laugh was contagious. Chris loved animals, with “Amy” her beagle always by her side. Everyone knew she loved a bargain…Just her presence made everything brighter.
Chris is survived by her loving husband, Larry Novotny; her son, John Novotny (Jill); granddaughters, Nicole Novotny and Meagan Novotny; and countless extended family and friends.
Along with her mother and father, Chris is preceded in death by her daughter, Patricia “Patty” Novotny.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later time with family. Bradford-O’Keefe funeral Home, 15th Street, Gulfport is honored to serve the Novotny family.
The family request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Humane Society of South Mississippi in her honor.
