My friend Christine was one of a kind. Always talking, smiling and laughing. I met Chris 26 years ago and our 1st outing was at the beach. AJ was about 3 yrs old when he cried all day that he wanted to go home. He didn't like the way the sand touched his feet. We laughed about that for years. I enjoyed lunches, dinners and a glass of wine with a chat anytime she called to meet up. Chris also enjoyed Citifield with me. Nothing better than having a friend who is also a Mets fan! She was so proud to be my very first massage client and begged me to be the last one when I was leaving NY. We worked together on nights for awhile and I always looked forward to seeing her at work. It made the night go by quickly. I was blessed to work in PACU as well as the OR and be able to work alongside Chris many days. ACLS, PALS, BLS classes, seminars, conferences.....She did it all. And all the Good Sam girls and guys were there to attend and support her. She will truly be missed by everyone. A great friend, mother, nurse, listener and of course a talker! I know she is reunited with AJ and now has peace in her heart. My dear friend Christine...This is never goodbye when you love someone as I have loved you. It's only Till We Meet Again

Biography

Christine Molinari (or Chris, as everyone knew her) was like no other. She was upbeat, confident, optimistic and outgoing. The light of many lives. She was courageous, brave and fierce. She was the definition of a selfless human and cared for others more than herself because seeing people happy, made her happy.

She loved to clean, cook, hang her laundry out on the line (even in the winter) and go to work. She worked at Good Samaritan Hospital for 28 years and kept working until she physically could not anymore. Her second family were those that worked there and because of this, she always said she never had to work a day in her life. They were her motivation and the reason she continued to show up to work every day. Chris was a natural leader who possessed a tough-minded, “take charge” attitude, which allowed her to take control of various situations with ease. She had the ability to make even routine situations seem exciting. Her love for life was contagious.

Sociable, kindhearted, and carefree, Chris was an individual who enjoyed life’s challenges. Two years ago, Chris was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. From the day her battle began, Chris took charge to fight her disease, while also being thankful for the life she was given. She was optimistic in her outlook on life and not once felt sorry for herself or her situation. She continued to live every day as if it were her last.

Chris was the kind of person who could win others over easily. She had the ability to befriend anyone who crossed her path. She was always able to provide amusing repartee to her friends and acquaintances, offering a seemingly endless supply of quips, anecdotes, jokes and stories. She enjoyed her life and the experience of living it.

As a friend of Chris beautifully said, "We need to honor Chris and the way she lived her life. Let’s treat each other as kindly and lovingly as she did. Let’s also battle as fiercely and bravely as she did."

A woman full of life and strength. This is how everyone will remember Chris Molinari.
