Chris and her family were our first neighbors we had when my husband and I and our daughter moved to Zanesville, Indiana. We became close neighbors as the years went by, adding additions to our families and sharing fun times together! To her children, John , Natasha and Kristian we are so sorry for your loss. We had no idea of your mother’s passing and we are saddened. You’re all in our prayers during this difficult time. The Sommer Family , Rob , Becky, Katie, Kelly and Sam .

Chris and I met years ago playing softball. A great friendship was born. We raised our kids together, at least our first ones and had one heck of a time. I’ll never forget her laugh and her smile and those piercing brown eyes. RIP my friend and have a Happy Heavenly Birthday.
