For those of us that knew Christine, those that called her Mother, Sister, Grandma, Great-Grandma, or friend - her passing leaves us with a tremendous sense of loss. But Christine would not have time for that. She enriched her community and our lives, crocheting blankets for churches and nursing homes and finding suitcases for foster children. She was a lifetime gardener, reader, a handmade quilt artist and devote Christian. She inspired four generations with her resilience, openness, positive attitude, tireless work ethic, and the giving the advice of God Doesn't Make Any Mistakes.
Pallbearers will be her grandsons Rodney Hardwick, Scott Hardwick, Paul Flynn Jr, Aaron Flynn, David Flynn Justin Flynn , grandson in laws Bill Hanna and John Geitman.
