The best mother and grandmother who always put others first. She was beautiful, vibrant, funny, and touched all who knew her. Her children and grandchildren knew how much she loved them and she constantly reminded them of how proud she was of them.
We are all proud of you, Mom. You taught us about love, loyalty, integrity, faith and, most importantly, about family. We will miss you and cherish our memories and will forever feel grateful and lucky to have had you as our Mom.
Christie is survived and cherished by her daughters; Bonnie Sue Baker, Sally Meredith Thomas, and Shannon Colleen Thomas; her son in-law Andrew James Baker; her grandsons Colin Patrick Baker, Christopher Ryan Baker, and Jesse Anderson Thomas; her sisters Lynda (Andrew) Swallow, Bonnie (Kenneth) Buechs, Helen (Richard) Baffuto, and Kathy Kuck; and many other loving family members. Also loved by her dear friend and companion, Gerard Staehlin.
