I am so sorry to Chris’ family and furry babies. This was an absolute shock. Her art still hangs on the walls of Kiley. Thank you Chris for teaching art to the individuals here. RIP. Chris

She would wait for me after work sitting on a bench in front of pavillion two. We would talk about her dog and how she loved to go to the dog park.We would talk about so many things and laugh so hard until tears would come out of her eyes. We laughed together. I will miss her. She had a kind heart. Good bye my friend. 😪

My deepest condolences to Chris's family and friends. Although we hadn't been in touch that often since Chris left Kiley Center to work @ Madden, I was hoping to get together with her soon, maybe around her birthday. I really enjoyed working with Chris at Kiley, and missed her when she left. She was such a nice person, with a great sense of humor, and enjoyed new experiences. She was a talented artist and art therapist, and a wonderful mother to her pugs! The news of her passing was such a shock, and so difficult to understand. I'm so glad I knew her. God Bless You, Chris.

My deepest condolences to her family & friends. She was such a sweet, caring person. I loved how her face used to light up everytime she showed pictures and talked of her babies (her dogs). She will be missed. RIP Chris

Christine will sorely be missed. She was a colleague and friend of mine at Madden. She fought a good fight. May her soul be at peace as she now rest in the loving arms of God. “Christine I know you are wearing some pearly white lipstick in heaven.” You will be missed my friend. Rest eternally well💔😇😢
