She loved helping others, but her true passion was helping and healing animals.  Christine made sure her kids and animals were always taken care of and up to date on their health care needs.  She was a selfless and giving person that put her own health and wellness last.  Christine was a wonderful daughter, mother, and sister and will be missed dearly.
