DALE — Christy L. (McDaniel) Hagmann, 64, died Tuesday, May 31, 2022. Her passing was sudden and unexpected, following complications that arose immediately after a planned surgery.

Christy was born and raised in Evansville, Ind., and most recently resided in Spring Hill, Fla. She was a 1975 graduate of Castle High School (Newburgh, Ind.) where she played volleyball for the Knights. Those teams amassed a stellar career record of 45-7 and earned multiple appearances in the Indiana state tournament finals. After serving students with specials needs for more than two decades as a teacher’s assistant at Sharon Elementary (Newburgh, Ind.) and Oakdale Elementary School (Boonville, Ind.), Christy eventually retired from the Warrick County School Corporation.

Christy loved her Savior and her family above all else. She was fiercely loyal and generous to a fault. She enjoyed taking care of her garden and hanging out by her pool. Christy’s love of sport continued throughout her life — channeled first into her sons, then into her grandchildren and lastly, to her beloved Tampa Bay Lightning. She enjoyed Sonny’s Barbecue, laughing ‘til it hurt, buying in bulk from Sam’s Club, and she had an insatiable thirst for Dr. Pepper.

Christy was preceded in death by her husband of 32 years, Robert J. Hagmann; her father, Everrett Eugene McDaniel; and her mother, Marydell (McCoy).

She is survived by two sons, John (LeAnn) and Brandon; her four grandchildren (Kaitlyn, Alexander, Olivia and Harper); three older sisters (Cathy, Linda, and Vicky); and a younger brother, David (Sonya).

Christy’s friends and family will be received at a graveside service to be held at Dale Cemetery in Dale, Ind., at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, with the Rev. John Hagmann officiating.
