Christie Lee Goble

October 4, 1953 – May 10, 2021

Christie passed after a long battle with kidney disease. She was 67 years old. Christie is survived by her sister Ernestine (Kathy) Sprague and two daughters, Erin Swan and Shyrle Collett. Christie was a proud Gramma of four granddaughters: Jemilee, Sara, Brielle and Ava. Christie also leaves her nephews Michael Sprague and Shannon Sprague, as well her extended family and numerous friends.

Along with her family, Christie had a deep love for Billy Joel and knew every song by heart. She loved to just sit and sing along to his music, especially “Piano Man,” which was her all-time favorite. Christie also had a soft spot for animals, especially big cats (i.e. tigers and black panthers) and greyhounds. She spent many years devotedly advocating for the rescue efforts of retired greyhounds and spent many years involved in the Maine Greyhound Placement Service, which also became her extended family.

No service is planned. In honor of Christie’s memory, donations can be made to the Maine Greyhound Placement Service at
