Christine was my neighbor and went to school with me. She was a good person with a ready smile and always kind to our family. I am sure her family will miss her! I am so sorry for her family!

I met Chris in 1988 when i moved in near her house. She was a great inspiration to me. She helped me learn how to raise my children. She was always there for me for good times and difficult times. In all the years we've been long time distant friends. I'll miss our hour long conversations. I thought of her as a big sister and family along with John, Matthew, Jennifer, and Michael. She will always be in my heart.

I met Christine and John a few years ago in Merrill, WI at her mom's house. She always had a smile on her face. I always loved visiting her when in Merrill, before church, after church and whenever they were in town visiting her family. She will be greatly missed. Until we meet again.

We met John and Chris a few years ago ; we sat in front of them at church and always had a chat before and after the service. Chris always had a smile on her face, and a positive attitude about life. During the service I could hear her singing her love for the Lord in a mighty way!
I will miss Chris so much! She shone for the Lord!
We love you Chris and we will see you again one day!

I had an instant connection with Chris and John because of our mutual home state of Wisconsin. Chris was so easy to talk with, and her outgoing nature sure made people feel welcome in our church, New Life Church, especially around our section family in 1F/9:00AM. I could tell she connected with a lot of folks in our church, and she was a huge blessing to all of us. John and Chris would always bring a great dish for the potluck parties we held monthly, too. We will miss her greatly!
