Chris was one of the kindest, strongest, bravest and most giving people you would ever want to meet.  She always put the needs of others before herself.  She had a genuine gift to understand and improve the lives of children with developmental disabilities and their families.

Chris graduated from Streetsboro High School and went on to become an Army nurse treating soldiers as they returned from Vietnam.  She continued her education attending Bible College and obtaining degrees from both Stark State physical therapy assistant program and Malone College business program.

She had a huge heart and worked with children and families at both Happy Day School and the Hattie Larlham Foundation. Her kind, gentle touch and loving understanding brightened and improved the lives of so many people.

Chris loved to travel and lived in Israel for 4 years.  Her favorite vacation trips were to Bryce Canyon, Utah. She loved dragonflies, and would love for you think of her when you see one. She also enjoyed gardening and had a special touch organizing colors and flowers and her spirit will live on in the beauty she created.
