Christa Darlene Kallner, 70, formerly of Kirklin, passed away at her home in Frankfort Sunday evening, Feb. 10, 2019, surrounded by her loving family.

Born Nov. 23, 1948 in Frankfort, she was the daughter of the late Wilbur Clayton and Druzilla Mae "Sally" (Cook) Faucett.

She graduated from Clinton Central High School with the Class of 1965.

On Sept. 19, 1969, she married Gary Keith Kallner. He preceded her in death on May 31, 2008.

Mrs. Kallner worked at Emerson-Mallory of Frankfort and retired in 1998 after 20 years of dedicated service.

She always seemed to be on the go. Getting her to sit still for any length of time was definitely a major undertaking. She loved fussing with her flowers and keeping all of the hummingbirds that frequented her property very happy. When it was time to relax a little bit, she loved curling up with her cats and getting lost in the pages of a Lisa Jackson book. Family was by far the most important part of her life. 

She was a member of the Bogantown Christian Church and a member of the Kirklin Legion Auxiliary.

Survivors include her daughter, Yolonda Kallner of Frankfort, two step-sons, Greg (Tracy) Kallner of Terre Haute and Charles David Kallner of Greencastle; her granddaughter, Stephanie Kallner of Frankfort; three brothers, Charles (Carlie) Faucett of Kirklin, Michael D. Faucett of Germany, and Phillip E. (Kate) Faucett of Kirklin; and one sister, Patty Faucett-Quick of Kirklin.

Other than her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Harold Faucett.

A Celebration of her life is being planned for a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kercheval Funeral Home in Sheridan.
