Send Flowers


Edna Christine Ratterree, a native of Niobrara, Nebraska and a coast resident for the past 19 years, was the heart of her family. As an award winning artist, she applied her talents to the art of painted china, producing hundreds of works. In her free time, Christine also enjoyed Bingo nights with her husband and family. Even Christine would agree with her family, driving a vehicle was not her expertise; she preferred to navigate and always enjoyed the scenic route. Christine was a member of Community of Christ Church in Ocean Springs. Edna Ratterree passed away, Sunday, September 29, 2013, at her home in Ocean Springs at the age of 84.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harley and Selma Anderson and brothers, Lee and Doug Anderson.

Christine’s loving memory will always remain in the hearts of her survivors; her husband: Raymond, who loved her dearly and had been married to her for 59 years; daughters: Suzanne (Jim) Ratterree, Roxanne (Gary) Simmons and Dawn Graboyes; son: Ray Ratterree; grandchildren; Shawn (Craig), Jenny (Eric), Noelle (Charles), Vikki, Josh, Patrick, Nick; great-grandchildren, Taylor, Davin, Codey, Amelia, Spencer, Ina, Collin, Lisa and Slade.

A memorial service will be held 7PM Thursday, October 3, 7:00 at the Community of Christ Church in Ocean Springs.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Christine to the Alzheimer’s Reserch or to Hospice Compassus Foundation in Gulfport.
