Margaret Christine “Christy” Fourzan-Walton
June 1, 1957 - October 13, 2012
Margaret Christine “Christy” Fourzan-Walton, at the age of 55, passed suddenly and peacefully with her family by her side on Oct. 13, 2012.
She was born June 1, 1957 to Genaro and Elvira Fourzan in El Paso, Texas.
She is survived by her parents and sisters, Patsy Fourzan-Pena and Elizabeth Fourzan of El Paso, Texas.
Mrs. Walton is also survived by her loving husband and best friend, Gary Walton. Also surviving are their two children, Travis Walton and Jerrod Walton.
Christy — as many in the community knew her — was a fitness instructor for 32 years. Her love of music and dance opened many hearts to being healed with her ability to teach and promote health. Upon moving her family to Payson in 1995, she brought her expertise to the community and taught Zumba for the last five years. She was also a part-time counselor for the Payson Unified School District’s PARC Program.
Christy was a bright light and will be greatly missed.
A celebration of her life will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 20 at Mountain Bible Church, located at 302 E Rancho Road in Payson.
Donations may be made in Christy’s name to the National Alzheimer’s Association Desert Southwest Chapter, 1028 E McDowell Road, Phoenix, AZ 85206. For more information call (602) 528-0545.
