Christine Hendricks
1949 - 2014
May 7, 1949 ~ Nov 22, 2014
Christine Hendricks, our sweet wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away peacefully at home in the arms of her loving family after a long battle with cancer.
Chris was born in Salt Lake City on May 7, 1949, to Paul and Marie Frampton. She attended Hillcrest High School and BYU. From an early age, Chris was an avid equestrian, and it was while riding her horse at the Utah State Fair Grounds that she met her husband, Michael Hendricks, to whom she was married for 45 years. She was sealed to her eternal companion in the Salt Lake Temple, on December 27, 1968. Together they raised five children in Riverton, Utah.
Throughout her life, Chris was known for her remarkable generosity and compassion. She was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, always willing to serve in any capacity. She served the members of her church and community in many ways including Primary, Scouting, Relief Society, and youth programs. Most recently, she loved working with the young single adults as the Institute Teacher.
Chris loved to spend time outdoors and took full advantage of each day through activities like riding horses and horticulture. She enjoyed working hard throughout her life and spent many hours beautifying her surroundings, often sharing her talents and knowledge with her friends and neighbors.
She had the ability to make everyone feel like her family, greeting friends and strangers alike with a bright smile and a firm handshake. She faced her trials with patience, and even through her illness, she was selfless and always concerned with those around her.
Her loving service was returned by generous members of her church and community. The family wishes to thank Kay Bateman, her family, and the Elberta Ward for their kind support in recent months as well as Dr. Wendy Breyer, the staff of Central Utah Clinic, Roger Hiatt, and Dignity Home Health and Hospice.
Chris is survived by her husband Mike Hendricks; children Julie Ann Dial (Jody), Kendell Boehme (Steve), David Hendricks, Robert Hendricks (Nichole), Riley Hendricks (Gina); and ten grandchildren.

I have very fond memories of family gatherings whether it was at Marie and Paul's or Chris and Mike's. She always made me feel special! I am sure there is an amazing reunion taking place as one more angel joins those who are watching out for us from above. May you be comforted with warm memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear Chris, I didn't know you has passed. I was just looking through the obits and there you were. You and I were at one time best friends (about the time you met Mike). We even made a pact that we would never forget our friendship. Well we didn't forget, you just fell in love with that wonderful Mike. I had to give you up and that was hard. When I think of you I remember a sweet, smart and darling lady and I know we will meet again in a much better place. Love to Mike. She was wonderful. (and is)

Hendricks Family,
We are extremely grateful to have known your sweet mother/grandmother. Her influence was profound on so many people in so many ways. She was a true disciple of Christ and a wonderful example to everyone. We pray for your comfort as you mourn your temporary separation from her.

She is my little sister. I love her, and I will miss her very much. Before she could really walk, she could climb anything and everything. I can picture her going up a trellis at my grandparents home. She always loved horses and used to gallop around the house on all fours, neighing, and jumping from the chair to the couch. She was 7 years younger than I am, and I am an avid reader so I was always trying to get her to read the books I was reading that were really too old for her, but she was game to try. She was a determined, fearless, exuberant, hard working great woman!

Dear Hendricks Family,

I'm so sorry to hear that Sis. Hendricks has passed away. She was always so kind to me. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word to say. May Heavenly Father be with you during this difficult time.
