Christine, mother, wife, artist, baker, outdoors woman, and lover of life. Out of the many passions that Christine had the one she was most passionate about was her family. She loved her husband dearly, her daughters fiercely, and cherished her grandchildren. This love and compassion was also extended to friends, strangers in need and many foster children, who also found love and acceptance under her roof. She was an artist in every way, always seeing and taking in the light, color, texture and smells that creation had to offer. Her works of art were not only confined to capturing beauty on canvas but also in baking. Her baking was so renowned that one could say it was a work of art too.
Without doubt her favorite times creating art, was when she was able to share her skills and time with her grandchildren. The quality time spent growing their imaginations and allowing them to have a glimpse of life through her eyes, is a gift that will continue to give.
She always had a tender heart for all God's creatures. Consequently this led her to spend a considerable amount of time outside. Whether it was kayaking, hiking, working in the garden, rescuing animals, playing with her dogs, or riding her beloved horses, she loved her time outside. When someone lives life as boldly, beautifully, and largely as Christine, the hole they leave on earth will never be filled. To the mother, wife, baker, outdoors woman, and lover of life you will forever be missed.
