Chris enjoyed an early retirement where she traveled, spent time with friends and family, and simply enjoyed life. She loved family cookouts down the cottage at Brant Rock and looked forward to the family "Ski Weekend" in North Conway for the past 30 years. Chris was an avid Miller Lite drinker, and she loved her Wednesday dinners with her bestie Barbara.

Chris' grandchildren were the light of her life and most recently she was so thrilled to see her grandson Jacob "Coolstring" win the Superbowl at Gillette Stadium for Rockland High School.

    Kristen I am so sorry we were away last week and missed being here to say good bye to Chris. I am glad we had those times we shared.......our monthly night out with the girls and over the years becoming a close friend. I still can't believe she won't be there with us. It just shows how we have to live each day and stay close to the friends we love. I'm glad we shared times together and will miss her 💔 RIP my friend 🙏🙏
