Chris Field, 59, of Shelbyville, KY, passed away Monday night, April 6, 2009, after an eight-month battle with cancer. Field was born on December 9, 1949, in Salt Lake City, Utah. After graduating from Olympus High School in 1968, Field attended the University of Utah. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, she married the love of her life on August 9, 1974, and would have celebrated her 36-year anniversary with her husband, William (Bill) Field, this year.

In 2004, Field realized her dreams when she rode the famous American Saddlebred, CH Rejoice, to a World Championship at the Kentucky State Fair World’s Championship Horse Show. She is survived by her husband, Bill; son John and daughter-in-law Tara Field; step-daughter Kimber; and her husband Stuart King of South Weber, UT; mother Doris Jones of Las Vegas, NV; sister Vicky and brother-in-law Gerald Isakson of Salt Lake City, UT; brother Ralph Jones of Las Vegas, NV; and her grandsons, Stockton, 12; Braxton, 11; Walker, 9, of South Weber, Utah; Aidan, 4, and Brock, 21 months, of Shelbyville, KY.
