Christa was a wonderful woman that was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. Our “Oma” as she was known by her grandchildren and extended family, was an amazing woman, wife, “Mutti” and our rock. She was always giving and helped any family members in need. You could always count on her to send notes and cards on nearly every holiday. She enjoyed spending time with her circle of friends and outdoors in her garden.
