Following her graduation in 1938, she became a home economist for OG&E teaching the use of the new electric powered stove.

In 1945, Chris married Guy Anthony, and together they raised six sons. She spent countless hours setting an example of service for her family as a leader for many community organizations.

In 1971, Chris was elected to the board of directors of OG&E. She later became the first woman to chair the Oklahoma City branch of the Federal Reserve, and one of the first women to serve on a Federal Reserve board nationally.

In 1985, Chris established a fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation supporting some of the causes most important to her. Chris died in 1993, but her support of central Oklahoma’s nonprofits will continue in perpetuity,
