Paul, Kathy and Colleen (and families),
I had the pleasure of meeting Chris and becoming a friend while we both worked at St. Mary's. My son Jordan also was blessed to have her as his 1st grade teacher. What a special lady!! I will miss her.
The last time we talked (just before Christmas) she was more concerned about my family than talking about herself, how typical of Chris. She always ended the conversation with "Tell Jordan I say hi". Children and education were so important to her and we know she loved what she did.
I remember her excitement when each of her daughters found their husbands, and then so excited when you both went on to have families of your own. She will always be your guardian angel and be watching over you and your families.
Thank you Paul for sharing your wife with all her students. We truly appreciate all she gave to our children.
I hope you know that so many others share your loss - God has a special plan for Chris.
Our heartfelt sympathy, The Oudenhoven Family Dennis, Lisa and Jordan
