Lindmark, Christine
02/14/1953 - 05/15/2020

Christine died peacefully of complications from Alzheimer's disease at a memory care community in Louisville.

She was born in Miles City, Montana to Dorothy and John Herian on Valentine's Day, 1953. When Christine was seven, the family moved to Boulder, CO. She went to CSU with a dance scholarship and graduated in 1976 with her bachelor's. She then acquired her master's degree from UCD in 1983.

Her work as the exhibition director for the Association of Operating Room Nurses took her to venues all over the world. She loved planning and hosting events where she would spend the day running the show, and the night partying with her clients and husband. As she would say, "you can sleep when you're dead."

She met her husband Harry who shared her passion for dancing, traveling, hiking, and skiing. They married in 1983 and built a wide web of friends who bowled, played cards, and drank wine together. They had their first son, John, in 1989 and their second, Rhys, in 1991 but continued their tradition of being the last ones to leave the party. Christine instilled the boys with her spunky brand of humor while modeling a fierce, independent approach to life.

She was preceded in death by her mother, father, and brother, Jim. She is survived by her husband Harry, her sons John and Rhys, her sister Paula, her brother Doug, and loving in-laws Hayley, Naomi, Ref, Wendy, and Howie.

She had a fondness for animals and children's education. If you are so inclined, you may donate in her memory to the Denver Dumb Friends League or to the Mordecai Children's Garden at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

So very sorry to hear this about a lovely neighbor. Such a tragic disease to strike down someone in their prime. Best to your family.

I am going to try this again and not be so long. I knew Chris for over 40 years. I have been thinking about what to write and realized that she was one of the most important people in my life. We shared many laughs and adventures - which she was always up for exploring. We went to the US Open tennis, Lake Powell, Beer tour at Coors to get free beer, followed Huey Lewis after his concert at Red Rocks,cross country skiing, went to parties, talked and laughed. I learned many things from Chris about life and myself. She will really be missed by me... We will celebrate her again at the annual Academy Awards party......

When Christine was in her AORN role I served on the Exhibitors Advisory Committee for a few years. She was a great leader, passionate about the nurses and great fun. Im so sorry for the familys loss, but happy to know she continued to entertain and inspire for many years.

Christine was a client of mine in South Australia and quickly became a close and outstanding friend. Despite the distance we had many amazing adventures together in Colorado and in South Australia. I loved her as a sister and as Harry and Christine supported me when my husband died my only wish now would have been to be with you Harry and also the boys. My condolences Sue

I didnt know Chris very well, but I did have the pleasure of meeting her and talking with her at Marlenes House. She was a beautiful person, full of passion and life. My heart is with you as you experience this loss.

For many years, Christine and Harry played in an annual Easter Sunday soccer game with us and many other families in Wash Park. While Harry was sacrificing his body making crazy saves in goal, Christine could usually be found at midfield enjoying a chat with whomever was nearby. She was a joy to be around because she took an interest in everything and everyone, and her warmth and good humor were so appreciated and will be sorely missed. We will light a candle in memory of Christine, and hope that the love and comfort of community will be felt be all her family in these virtual times. Sending lots of hugs.

My condolences to the family. I was able to spend a fair amount of time with Rhys and John on the CT in 2013. Clearly, they came from good stock. Godspeed Christine.

I shared more than 30 years of memories with Chris. Our kids grew up together. We had wonderful trips in Mexico, the Virgin Islands, Lake Powell. She always made me smile. I was lucky to have her in my life and as my friend. I will miss her so much. She knew she was loved by her husband, sons and many friends. A life well lived.

I am so very sorry to hear this. I had many great times with the Lindmark family, many of which took place at one of Tom Burns' (RIP) infamous gatherings filled with a feast of food and wine. Others took place in Utah camping with friends. Sending condolences.

Christine used to be my client when I worked for Visit Denver... she and Deidre would come to my house for dinner and we would tell stories and laugh after a great spa day! She was a person you could always turn to as a friend.
