Dear Tom, Rochelle, Jim, and family,
Thinking of you during this difficult time.  At family gatherings, I remember Christine was easily approachable and fun to visit with her.  On several occasions, she assisted Rodney and I with travel plans and Christine was efficient and helpful.  Savor the happy memories of your mother and grandmother.   🙂

My sympathies to Christine’s family. I worked with Christine at Kenosha Auto Transport.  We shared small office with one other person.  We always had fun and giggled at the silliest things.  Cindy Mercer

Christine will be greatly missed.  She was such a nice lady.  Went to church with her for years.  Had lunches together with other members and always had lots of laughs.  My sympathy to her family. Jean Clark
