PEORIA ~ Christ Thompson, 89, of Peoria, passed away at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, December 28, 2019 at the Proctor Endowment Home in Peoria.

Born December 25, 1930 in Chicago, he was a son to Thomas and Panagiota (Spiropulos) Thompson. On June 27, 1954, he married Maria Chianakas in Peoria. Christ honorably served in the United States Air Force from 1951-1955 during the Korean War. He went on to attend Bradley University and continued his education at St. Louis University Dental School. He worked as a dentist for over 50 years, retiring in 2010. Christ lived in many cities including Chicago, Pekin, University City, Missouri and Peoria.

Christ was an avid golfer and artist, having drawn posters and oil paintings for Corn Stalk Theater, as well as golf covers for the 18 hole Peoria Women’s Golf League and Mt. Hawley Country Club Ladies 18 hole Golf League for over 40 years and drew his own Christmas cards for 35 years.

Survivors include his wife, Maria; sister-in-law Stella Thompson of Peoria; brothers-in-law, James Chianakas of Pekin, IL and George “Mike” Chianakas of Crystal Lake, IL; and several nieces and nephews.
