Christina cherished the simple joys of life. She found immense pleasure in watching westerns on TV and had a special place in her heart for dogs.

For many years, Christina dedicated her time and energy to Western Steer Restaurant, where she formed friendships with coworkers and patrons alike. She and her husband also operated a concession trailer at local festivals, serving delicious treats and creating cherished memories for all who visited.

One of Christina's greatest joys in life was her family. She adored her grandchildren and was excited to meet her great-grandson.
