I had the pleasure of having Chris in my SilverSneakers class at the JCC on Fridays. She was so lovely, always quick to smile and happy to engage in pre-class conversation. Her energy and enthusiasm was a great addition to the class and to our feeling of community. I know she will be missed.

Christine befriended me in 1969 when I was a new immigrant to Canada being a neighbour on my street. She was a huge comfort to me, understanding what it was like to leave one's family and live in another country. Over the next 25 or so years she and her husband Hans became firm friends sharing many happy times, our children and all the ups and downs of family life. She was unique as a person - always fashionable, and controversial. We shared many lively conversations on our many walks each evening and enjoyed our "popcorn" time afterwards. Her round table in the dining room could speak volumes about lives well lived. We were fortunate enough to meet Christine's second husband Ed Wiser - a true gentlemen, and they made a great pair and we again shared good times with them both in Canada and Williamsville, again sitting around that same table. It was a great honour to know Christine and her family, sisters, brothers-in-;aws etc. It was like the family we didn't have. We're hoping that she is at peace and painting/creating her beautiful pictures in a better place. Goodbye Christine, dear friend for so many years and thanks for the memories.

Your friends Liz & Barrie Jones, Chippawa, Canada

Chris will be missed so very much!! We had such a wonderful chat very recently, with lots of reminiscing and much laughter about our high school and working days and thru the many years we remained friends. I shall miss our lunches sharing stories about the paths that life took us. Who knew she would be gone so shortly after our talk! Her smiling face will remain in my mind with each thought of her. May God give peace and comfort to all her family. We know she is happy being reunited with other family members.
