Aunt Chris was very, very special to me! I loved her from as far back as I can remember… she was a teenager and played ‘tea party’ with me when I was only 3! That was just the beginning of us making memories together! Memories I’ll treasure always!❤️ She was definitely ‘country when country wasn’t cool’ as the song lyrics go!🎶 She had a great voice, I loved to hear her sing!! In fact, singing songs at the piano was one of our favorite things to do! Baking cookies, shopping, sunbathing, playing cards, and talking about Jesus were our favorite things to do! She absolutely loved Jesus and knew He loved her…knowing she is with Him is comforting! What a glorious time she’s having now! She’s got her ‘Mansion Over The Hilltop,’ and ‘Stars in Her Crown,’ and she’s ‘Safe In The Arms of Jesus!’ 🎶🎶🎶 I always wished her life had been easier; she had many trials! I prayed for her so much! I envisioned us going to the German Festival again, baking cookies, etc …but God took her home! And her suffering days are through, though she will be missed terribly! She loved my parents, my kids, and grandkids…and they loved her! Aunt Chris had a very kind heart!❤️ We did laugh and cry a lot together, and we shared secrets like girlfriends sometimes! I already miss her so much! Mark and Matt, please accept my most heartfelt sympathy! I’m praying for you and all her family who loved her so much! God will hold you up and give you comfort to get through this time. You will see your mom again someday!! 🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏❤️

Dear Westervelt Cousins, We are sad to learn that Aunt Chris ( Teeny ) has passed away, please know we all loved Chris and share in your sorrow. She was a beautiful person who loved her family dearly. When our parents fell ill, Chris was there to help out. We are forever grateful for the personal sacrifices she made. It was during this time we got to know her well. She could make us laugh and cry, sometimes both at the same time. From my nephew eyes, Teeny was the cool aunt who was not only beautiful but could sing country music, decorate the best Christmas trees and cook just like grandma. There are so many good memories but most of all she was always kind. She will be dearly missed. Love, Mike, Helen, Ryan, Mike Jr., Alisha, Hazel and Willa

To my Brother-in-Law Matt, my Sister Raeanne, Mark and all the beloved family and friends of Christine. I am so sorry for the sa loss of Christine. She was so sweet to all she met and she really did touch our lives! Lorena was alway so happy to visit your house because she absolutely loved Christine.

We love you and if Ty err is anything we can do for you please let us know! Forever in our hearts Christine Harless…. ❤️

So sorry for your loss. My Father Robert Klinge and Christine's father Cap were brothers. We only got to spend a little bit of time with Christine at family reunions, but we recognized her good heart. Especially for her boys we offer our condolences. No one loves you like your Mom. Having just lost my Mom a few months ago, we understand the loss. But as John 11:11 says Death is like sleep. And there will be a resurrection John 5:28,29. Sending our love to all of Christines family. Cheryl & Gene Warren
