Mary, Mark & family. I am so saddened to read that Chris has passed away. I knew her from Toboso and Licking Valley school. Chris was one or 2 years behind me and I graduated with Mark. Then many years later I needed a babysitter and somehow I got directed to Chris. She was great with my son. She was a dear person and will not be forgotten. Thinking of you, sending Love, Hugs and prayers.
