If you knew Chris, you know what an amazing human she was. She was filled with kindness, generosity and love and spread it to everyone she met. Her laugh was contagious and she was incredibly lucky to have such extraordinary friendships!
Being a mother was Chris’ greatest love and accomplishment. Her favorite moments were those spent hearing about hunting adventures, watching CSI together, cooking all his favorite foods and most recently watching him obtain his Builders License.
She was forever grateful she could experience the immense joy of becoming a grandmother, known as Brina. Nothing gave her more pleasure than spending time with them or looking for treasures to surprise them with. She will be their guardian angel from afar and walk them safely through life’s journey.
