Christine Gislason passed away peacefully on March 6, 2018, at the age of 65 surrounded by her family. She was born on September 20th, 1952 in Fall River, Massachusetts to John and Florence Malone. She grew up in Seattle, WA and lived most of her life in British Columbia, Canada, spending her later years between Hope and her “home away from home” in The Pas.
She is sadly missed by many family and friends. Christine is survived by her spouse Eddy Hansen and his daughter Kendra, Christine’s daughters; Melissa Hallam-Schroder, Wendy Nyschuk and Trista (Mark) Brandt and her grandchildren; Zoey, Sage, Max, Rylea, Johnathan and Zachary.
Christine was predeceased by her first husband Michael Jeffrey Nyschuk (1998) and second husband Todd Gislason (2002).
Chris loved animals, books and working in her gardens. You could often find her reading peacefully in the garden with a cup of Red Rose. Her career in nursing was dedicated to caring for the needs of others. She loved to be with her grandchildren in any way she could whether it be watching them during the day or listening to them bickering at the dinner table.
In respect of her wishes no funeral services will be held. The family will be hosting a Celebration of Life gathering to share stories and memories.
Please join us to honour her memory at the Bakerview Celebration Centre 34863 Cemetery Ave, Mission, BC V2V 6Y6 at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 17, 2018.
