We just heard the news as we were on vacation. Lynn mentioned going over and playing with you all when they would visit Grandpa & Grandma Ellis. Good memories of those times, so sorry for your loss.

I didn't meet Chris until Duane passed away but we had lunch once and talked a couple of times. I thought she was a great lady. My sincere sympathy in her passing. May God give you comfort and peace.

Chris was one of my best friends in high school. I spent many nights at her family’s home. We had some great adventures and memory-making moments. She was loved and will be missed. Thoughts and prayers for her family.

I was so sad to see of Christine’s passing. 😢 She was one of the Parkview Noble Needle Workers which I led for several years. It was through that group that I got to meet and know her quite well. My sincere sympathies to her family! May you have sweet memories to give you comfort at this time. Julie Buttgen
