The young family would move to Monroe County making their home in Dundee in 1980. Christina attended Dundee Schools.
She took a position on the assembly line with the Ford Motor Company. Christina wasn’t afraid of work and was especially proud of the freedom and independence that her position at Ford allotted her. She loved being a mother to her two sons, Jeremy and Randall, and providing for them.
Christina enjoyed staying busy and she had a hunger for life-long learning. She loved cooking and especially baking. She challenged herself by going back to school at The Art Institute where she would study culinary arts. She also learned Spanish.
