A lover of people, Chris welcomed all into her home with a gift of hospitality, caring for her family and friends with genuine concern and love. She loved sharing her faith and love of Jesus with others encouraging them to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

She loved beautiful things and used her home as her canvas to create beauty. She loved the outdoors, gardening, spending time and caring for her Polled Hereford cattle and her dog Bella. She loved traveling and seeing the beauty of God’s creation in all fifty states. She especially loved spending time and visiting her favorite beaches.  Her most favorite way to spend her time was being with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
