July 1, 1972 — October 5, 2018
Christina Hampton, 46, of Overland Park, passed away on October 5th, 2018, in Kansas City after a two year battle with interstitial lung disease. Christina looked for joy in the small things in life, and always had something to smile about. She was a strong willed and passionate woman. She stuck to her beliefs no matter what and she spoke loudly enough to make sure she was heard. She touched so many lives, and had so much love in her heart. She wanted to be as close as possible to everyone in her life and was selfless when taking care of loved ones, and friends.
