She worked on the Orthopedic and Surgical Floors and later as a Care Manager, receiving The Excellence in Nursing Award in 2002. She was a long time member and past president of the Akron Chapter of NAON (The National Association of Orthopedic Nurses). She was truly loved by many at Akron General touching many lives. She loved God, her family, her coworkers and friends and her loving dog BW. She loved crafting, card making, spending time with family, walking BW, doing puzzles and playing cards. She enjoyed the outdoors and the very special times kayaking with her dog and husband in area lakes. She always looked forward to spoiling her family during the Christmas season. She loved to bake especially during the holidays. Always making the best Pumpkin Roll and Nut Roll. A kind and beautiful soul, Christine always thought of others before herself.
