For anyone that may have had the pleasure of knowing Chrissy, she was an absolute force to be reckoned with and was always the life of the party! She loved spending time at her second home in Cape Cod with her family and friends. She was an avid writer who enjoyed journaling and writing poems. She often found moments of peace coloring in one of her numerous coloring books. She made beautiful gift baskets that started out as a hobby and became a full-time business, Wrap it Up.
One of the greatest blessings in her life was becoming a Babci and she loved her three granddaughters endlessly. We will truly miss her vivacious spirit, her generous nature and quick wit. Godspeed Chrissy – may God open his loving arms and take you into his heavenly kingdom.
