By most she’s known as Chris, to family and friends she was known as the “Queen” and nicknamed “Queenie”. She was a leader and our family ambassador as her strength in mind as well as character held us all together. Chrystabelle a very determined and independent woman was as close to one could be to being a true angel. She loved and collected her angels. Throughout the years Chris faced and overcame many of life’s obstacles, regardless she never once complained and always was on to help others.
Because of the love she shared, she volunteered and was highly active as a member of the Mosinee Methodist Church. There she was also a member of the churches prayer group and prayer chain. Queenie with a very wise and straight forward demeanor loved to read books, and bake good just to satisfy her demanding sweet tooth, boy could she cook. Chris worked with the Mosinee Paper Mill for over 30 years retiring as the head secretary in the Mill’s chemical lab. Chrystabelle will forever be loved and remembered by those who were truly blessed to know she will never be replaced.
