Christine,  Seems like just yesterday, we were cheering South High on to Victory! We will miss you, I will miss you! A true friend, confidant, and someone I really admired for her courage in life with all it's challenges. Forever my friend.

My good old buddy, Chris! I met her in 5th grade when we were made crossing guard partners! We promptly got in trouble for dancing on the corner while we waited for the kids to get out of school. Well, there was nothing to do down there on the corner of California Ave. and Glendale Drive! I didn't know until then that Chris lived right down the street from me. We got to be good friends for the next few years, spending the night at each others houses, going downtown on the bus, watching Creature Features on Friday night, and then being to scared to go to sleep! She loved to "air drum" to certain songs, and I will never be able to hear "Psychotic Reaction" without thinking of her. After we moved to California, we remained in touch, though I hadn't heard from her for a long time, and I know she had her struggles, I always considered her one of my best friends. I 'll always love her!

I was very saddened to hear of Chris's passing. I have known her since we were little kids and hung out a lot in Jr. High and High school. She was loved by many. She always had such a positive attitude and always lifted those around her. She was such a great example to everyone. I was looking forward to seeing her at the reunion.
She will be missed!

So sorry to read of Christine's passing. I went to South with Chris and remember her deep kindness toward others and wonderful laughter. May Her Memory Be Eternal.

I also went to High School With Chris. In fact we hung out together quite often. I agree that she was full of energy and life. She always had a great attitude and was always building every one up and giving lots of encouragement to others! She was a beautiful person with a beautiful smile that lit up as she walked into the room! I know she was always helping to organize many activities at school and to get people involved that may not have been involved if not for her! It sounds like she was like that throughout her life from what others are saying. I regret not staying in touch with her. She was so young to leave this world! I am so saddened to hear of her passing. God Bless all of her family and close friends with his love, comfort and peace through this difficult time, Pam Miller-Blair

I remember Chris when she worked at the Kearns OFS. A very kind and funny person full of boundless energy. Take care and save some of the heavenly grapes for the rest of us. :)

Aunt Christine, We all love you and your infectious enthusiasm. You so added joy to our lives. We will never forget you. You are forever young, 14 years old for me. I can still see your beautiful face in my daughter. Fly free.

I worked with Chris 30+ years ago at Perkins and have never forgotten what a fun, joyous person she was. My sympathies to her friends and family.

I am so sad about your passing! I have known you all my life, I don't think I have many childhood memories that include my Aunt Rose that don't include you. Your smile and laughter were so infectious, you always had a way of lighting up whatever room you were in. I will miss your advice, your hugs, you reassuring ways but most of all I will miss you! Walk amongst the angels Aunt Chris and know that I pray you finally have found peace! I love you, and I will miss you very much!

Chris, I've been looking for you and wondering about you ever since the last time I saw you the last time about 10 years ago. I always considered you one of the best friends of my life. Know I've always loved you and remembered the good times we had together. Rest in peace and enjoy the other side- I hear it's really nice over there! Love you!

I am deeply saddened to find that Chris has passed. I went to high school with Chris and have thought of her often. I thought very highly of Chris as she was one of a kind, that was why she remained in my thoughts all these years later. My sincere condolences to her family

Missy, so sorry for your loss - I enjoyed knowing her when she worked for DWS. She will be missed.

I was so saddened to see that you had passed. I have thought of you often over the years and wondered how you were and where you were. I hope you had a good life. Like your obituary says, "you were one of the greatest" someone who certainly made an impression on me enough to think of you over these many years. You left an impression on my life. Thank you for that. May you rest in Peace
