December 13th, 1949 - April 23rd, 2021 Christine Cullen Bartlett, formerly Christine Lee Cullen, passed into the arms of her lord on April 23rd in her home in San Dimas in the presence of her family at the age of 71. Born in Glendale, CA to parents Vin and Billie, she is a woman known for her creativity and artistic abilities, as well as her loving nature. An accomplished artist and talented woodworker, Christine was known to be as capable with a drill press as she was with a paintbrush, and several of her designs are still used by the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America to this day. Chris was an Art History major at Cal State Northridge, where she met her Tri-Delta sisters who would remain lifelong friends. She is survived by her children Amy Marie and Mathew Cullen Bartlett. A memorial service will be held at St. John Lutheran Church in Covina on June 12th at 10am. Those attending are asked not to wear dark colors, as she wished for her memorial service to be an upbeat celebration of her life and her family and friendships. Due to limited space and Covid considerations, the service will be streamed online for remote friends and family. Link to service video stream will be included on facebook.
