Christine Elaine Devine was born April 23, 1940 in Tacoma, Washington, and passed away September 12, 2019 at 79 years old. She married Walter "Bill" R. Devine on May 2, 1959, and he preceded her in death.

Six grandchildren (spouses), Marcos (Amy) Quintero, Danielle (Jake) Corey, Billie Jo (Casey) Courtright, Hanna Morris, Emily Morris, and Lexi Grier, and six great-grandchildren.
Chris was the epitome of the of the word "homemaker" and an extraordinary mom. Home was not just a dwelling, but a place where people who entered were loved, cherished and encouraged. She loved to bake, making delicious meals and desserts, especially cookies. She was known as the "Cookie Grandma".
Chris loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She had always been close to her cousins, aunts and uncles. After she got married, she took on the Devine family as her own. She loved to keep in touch by phone, letters, weddings and parties.
She always made life fun and exciting. She read stories, played games, rocked children, and solved problems. She was always there when anyone needed a "mom" to talk to. The great-grandchildren were her "Little Chickens" that lit up her life!
Chris Devine was loved by many people and will be sorely missed.
