Chrissie was employed as a skilled Configuration Manager with KBR Wyle for many years. In 1995 she met the love of her life, whom she married on September 21, 2002 in Quantico, VA. She had an affinity for the water, loved to vacation at the beaches, with Aruba being her favorite destination. She also had a little fun gambling playing black jack at the casinos. She had quite the collection of matching shoes and purses to complete her outfits. She was a delicious cook and oriental cooking was her specialty. Thanksgiving was a favorite holiday because she loved hosting her family and having everyone there for the Big Game. She loved cheering on Tom Brady. She also enjoyed going to country music concerts with her favorite artist being Jason Aldean. Her greatest love was for her family, especially her daughters and grandchildren, who brought her great joy.
