She worked as a teaching assistant for the Grainger County school system for many years. Her passions included family, friends, traveling, and beach vacations to the Florida panhandle.“Always needing something to look forward to…”

Christine was a proud veteran of the United States Navy serving on the USS Puget Sound.  She was a huge UT fan, Go Vols!
