Obituary for Christine Rae Brabant

Christine Rae (Calewarts) Brabant, age 62, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on January 19, 2018. She was born March 24, 1955 to Ray and Ilene (White) Calewarts. Chris was raised for many years in County Line at County Line Dance Hall. On February 12, 1972 she married Terry Brabant in Menominee, MI. Together they had four children. For many years she was a stay at home mom, but also waitressed at various restaurants around Oconto, including The Snack Shack and the Chez Doulet. Once the kids were older she worked at R.L. Hall Land and Title Company. Most of her recent time was spent enjoying her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed gardening, cooking/baking, family gatherings, but most of all, anything that involved her grandsons.

Chris is survived by her husband of nearly 46 years, Terry; son, Jesse (Ashley); daughters, Michelle (Jesse) Grauvogl, Crystal (Ryan), and Amy; grandsons, Braeden Brabant, Jacksen Cota, and Tyson Brabant.

Chris was preceded in death by her parents; mother and father-in-law, PeeWee and Gloria Brabant; daughter-in-law, Megan (Stellmacher) Brabant; and brother-in-law, Larry Mayotte.

Chris will be missed by many. Many knew her as “Ma”, “Momma Chris”, “Chrissy” and “Grandma”. The door and her kitchen were always open to all.
