Cristine Meadows

January 20, 1952 — June 6, 2024


Cristine “Cris” L. Meadows, 72, gained her angel wings on June 6, 2024, in Danville, Indiana. Cristine was born on January 20, 1952, in Indianapolis, Indiana. She was a graduate of Martinsville High School. Cris touched the lives of many through her vocation as a substitute teacher and her dedication to her church, Ben Davis Christian Church. Undoubtedly, she has joined the love of her life, father of her children, Randall “Randy” Meadows to dance eternally in each other’s arms. Cris was also preceded in death by her father, Irvin Fisher, her brother Dennis Fisher, and her sister-in-law, Karen Fisher. Cris poured her love and optimism into her four children, Amanda (Brett Hoover) Cartwright, Somer (Justin) Turner, Joshua (former wife Erin) Meadows, and Breeanna (Joseph) Warfield. Her ten grandchildren were her joy and purpose, Clare, Marcus, Ava, Brady, Skyler, Lucas, Alec, Cooper, Rosee, and Cora. Cris is survived by her mother, Betty Fisher and her siblings, Irvin Fisher, Jr. Mike Fisher, Vickie (Gary) Hendrickson, Lynda (John) Poulsen and Jason (Jamie) Fisher.

Cris was a playful, positive, and powerful force in life. Cris looked up to her grandmothers who taught her how to churn butter, bake, sew her own clothes, and love the Lord. Her husband Randy fell head over heels for her beautiful face and petite frame when she brought the attendance sheet into their Martinsville High School classroom. They were married on March 12, 1972. Their first years were filled with adventures to Pike’s Peak and Gatlinburg. They loved to water ski, snow ski, and to dance to bands like the Bee Gees.

Cris knew no strangers. It was common for her to enter the grocery store and come out with a new friend. She was warm, inviting, and loved to “be silly.” She used this charisma to help her own children thrive. Cris shared her passion for teaching and learning with her family by taking frequent trips to the public library, parks, pools, apple orchards, long bike rides, the Indianapolis children’s museum, and the Indianapolis Zoo. Cris was a huge advocate for preserving childhood and giving children a “safe place” to grow. She demonstrated this passion in her vocation as an MSD Wayne Township Substitute Teacher and Teacher’s Aide, by leading girl scout troops, and teaching Sunday School classes at Ben Davis Christian Church. Cris also attended every activity possible for her grandchildren who lovingly refer to her as “Mamo.”

Cris was a light in this world and the magic that she created around her will be forever remembered. She loved to giggle and laugh. If you were lucky, you got to visit her on one of her famous “Coke” runs or walk with her at her super speedy walking pace. Some of her family members even called her “Mother Theresa” due to her devotion to serving others and seeing the best in people and their circumstances. Cris was always aware of hardships and trials; she just made a choice early on to spread love and positivity. She demonstrated strength by loving through the hard times and making others smile. It would be her hope that more people would do that in this world.

Please join us in celebrating Cris’s life on Saturday, July 6th at 11 AM. We ask that everyone attend in bright, comfortable clothing (as Cris would want it to be lighthearted and family-friendly). The Celebration of Life and Reception will be held at Rick’s Café Boatyard. The address is 4050 Dandy Trail, Indianapolis, Indiana 46254. More details to follow on Facebook.

To continue Cris’s focus on providing the best possible environment for every child, in lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Ben Davis Christian Church or to your local school and teachers. Cris’s battle with Ovarian Cancer was hard fought. A special thank you to Jessica Vaughn and the Hendricks Oncology and Radiology team for supporting our mother and our family during our 18-month journey. She would want more mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters to have a cure for platinum-resistant ovarian cancer. In honor of Cris’s fight, please also consider donations to OCRA, Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (
