Christine grew up in Rock Island, Illinois and moved to Peoria, Illinois at the age of 14. She was very close to her sister, Pam Krasner Sparks.  She loved going camping with her family and friends. She was a lifelong collector of dolls.  She loved watching old movies and one of her favorite movies was “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. She loved to collect dolls and memorabilia of old movie stars, like Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Temple and Judy Garland. She was a Michael Jackson fan all her life.  

Christine loved her children and grandchildren. Sadly, her daughter Pamela Rose Krasner, passed away in 2020. Christine deeply mourned the death of her daughter. Christine  is remembered for her caring and compassion for others, her wonderful sense of humor, according to her son, Aaron, she was a great cook, she loved nostalgia, Christmas and her family. She loved her partner, James Cattledge (Jimmy) who were together for 25 years. Jimmy was with her when she took her last breath. Jimmy and her son, Aaron were each holding Chris’s hand as she passed into God's loving  arms. 

She was proud of all of her children and she loved to brag about them all the time. After the death of her daughter, Pamela Rose, her sister Kathy Utley would call her from Colorado every day to check up on her. Kathy and Chris would comfort each other and laugh with each other until the very end of Christine's life. Her mother Pat Krasner said that Chris would often come over to help her around the house and with yard work. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, mother and friend.  

Christine was baptized as a baby in the Catholic Church, she attended Catholic Mass remotely, and was given her last rites.
