Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. Larry, Dan, Karen, I am so sad to hear of your loss. I so many fond memories of her as a child growing up with Dan. Use to love climbing the fence into your backyard to visit. She was always so sweet to me. She always had some good baking goods to eat when I was there. Her love of music, art, and gardening was obvious. She was definitely one of my neighborhood moms. I was blessed to be raised in such a great neighborhood and have roll models like her. Prayers go to you all.

  2. Christine was a caring and compassionate person and a dedicated teacher. She taught many children and made a difference in many of their lives. She was a true model of excellence in teaching. Condolences to all the family for the loss of such a lovely person.

  3. It was a pleasure to work with Christine at Spann Elementary where she taught pre-first grade. She was soft-spoken, kind and loving to the students and a true professional in every way. The world needs more wonderful people like Christine. Please accept my condolences.

  4. Christine was a wonderful Sunday School teacher. So sorry to hear of her passing. My prayers for the family during this time.

    Mrs. Lawrence was my babysitter while I was in elementary school at Sunset Park. This morning I happen to drive by her house in Sunset which I have not been by in YEARS. I did not know of her passing until this afternoon and just find how God works in such ways. I remember Mrs. Lawrence’s soft, kind voice. I know it’s been 45 years and I still remember her bubble lights on her Christmas tree. I remember how she was such a gentle spirit. I’m so sorry for the family and their loss.
