Sorry to learn of Christine's passing. We were neighbors for several years and I missed her when she moved. We had some good laughs. Keeping family and friends in my prayers.

Debbie and Greg, may all the love and memories flow through your heart daily. Your mother was a joy to many people and was loved very much. She never failed to either make me laugh or give me a nice lecture. She was a bundle of fire that never failed to express what she was thinking. I love you both and have always been blessed to have you all in my life. Fly high Aunt Christine!!!

Chris was my mother’s neighbor for many, many years. She always had time to talk especially if it was about the Dallas Cowboys! She always had a smile and such a quick wit! She will be missed by so many and I know she was greeted by many family and friends at Heaven’s gates.❤️🙏❤️🙏

Condolences To the Family:
One of my life's favorite memories is working with Chris at TAC. Going to Dallas Cowboys games & having "girls nights
out" with Chris back in the late 70s was the highlight of my short time there. When I think of her still, a smile always comes to my face. I know Chris is entertaining everyone she meets in Heaven now. God Bless Ya'll and keep her memory close to your hearts.

Chris was such a lovely lady! I met her when my mother-in-law, Nell, moved in at the Oaks Assisted Living Center. Chris was the first person to welcome Nell to her new home. On most occasions, Chris would be on the patio greeting each of us who were arriving to visit our loved ones. She always had a smile on her face and a "feisty" hello! Chris also truly loved having her sister there with her and missed her terribly when she passed away. And let's not forget about her precious dog, Cowboy. She loved him! I so admired the way her children, Debbie and Greg were so devoted to her every need. They provided Chris with such loving attention to her last day. May she rest in peace.

Sweet and Sassy Aunt Christine. She wasn’t my aunt by blood, but I loved her just the same. She was a pistol for sure, and will most definitely be missed. RIP Aunt Christine.
