Christina Joy Schindler, 33, of Evansville, IN passed away unexpectedly at home on Tuesday, October 23, 2018. She was born in Evansville on March 26, 1985 to William, Jr. and Joy Schindler.

She attended Evansville Day School through 6th grade, then 7th and 8th grade at Oak Hill Middle School. Christi graduated from North High School where she was a member of American Musical Ambassadors and Marching Band, playing Alto Sax for 4 years. She was nicknamed “CJ” in the band because there were so many girls named Christi. While in Evansville, she held various positions at Casino Aztar and Toyota Care Resources. She moved to Naples, FL in 2014 where she owned Barefoot Paradise Residential Cleaning, then moved back to Evansville in 2017 due to a hurricane and her health. Christi loved her adopted animals Levi, Lilo and Bootsie, and her python snake, Buttercup. Her greatest love was being in the Backstreet Boy fan club and she followed them all over the U.S. and Vegas. She had a passion for adult coloring. We will miss her pretty face and beautiful smile.

Christina was preceded in death by grandparents, Agnes Schindler, Helen Stull, Raymond Kerchief; cousins, Dennis Delgman, Bobby Delgman, Izrael Kirsch; and uncle, Keith Becker.

I met Christina on facebook. There was something about her I was drawn to.she seemed very sweet and down to earth. We quickly became friends and over the course of a couple years we shared some memories. Just today I pulled out an adult coloring book and started to color thinking about how much she loved them as well. We shared the gospel and the love of God. She started going to church recently and I was very proud of her. I never got to meet her in person, but she will forever remain in my heart.

Joy, I am so sorry for your loss. Christi was such a great kid, and so very talented. I enjoyed having her in the North Band and I appreciated all she did. She had a fun loving personality and a beautiful smile. It was heartbreaking to see all the struggles she went through with her health. I know she was trying so hard to overcome the setbacks and the pain she suffered through. My heart goes out to you and your family during this time of sorrow. Praying for you.

Christi you will be missed in all the days to come. We shared the same birthday and one year particular was very special. Your Mom surprised us with a limo to dinner at Sambuca in Nashville. We saw Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban at the restaurant. I’ll always remember the Christmas mornings with you and Uncle Ricky, Auntie TT, and Joymae. It was so entertaining watching you open gifts along with Ricky. Joy always had Ricky a big surprise. The fun at Auntie E’s making the grandkids sing a song for their gift. You were so loved by your Mom. I love you sweet CJ. Rest In Peace and Love.
