Chris lived and worked in the Tuscaloosa area for the past 55 years, accumulating a host of family and friends. She will best be remembered as one who pulled people into her circle and always thought "the more the merrier". She used her talents to plan and implement fundraisers for PTA's, sports associations, Special Olympics and so many others. Chris loved to socialize and was a natural born event/party planner who took every opportunity to gather family and friends together. She planned and directed weddings and hosted wedding and baby showers, as well as other events, receiving so much joy from making others happy. Her personality was bigger than life, and she will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
