Chris scattered joy, was music and dance personified, cared about important things, was a devoted (and proud) mom & grandma, and so much more.
Armloads of hugs, love and sympathy to her family, Brenda McDonald

I have great memories of Christine. I can remember when in ( I believe) eight grade it was the end of the year talent show and three of us decided to be her back up singers. She sang " Find a Wheel" . What fun that was. She had a very nice singing voice. I can remember good times around her at Whitehall High. We did not live far from each other. I am sure you all will miss her. With prayers and my sympathy to all the family.

God Bless
