Christine was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She took great comfort and inspiration through her deep faith, time spent studying her Bible, fellowship with her church family and prayer. Lots of prayer. Much of her warm weather free time was spent rooting for her beloved Kansas City Royals. She was an avid cook and always ready to deliver a crock pot or dessert dish at church fellowship functions.

Christine is survived by her husband Boyce, three children, Chip Chesnut of Lee’s Summit, Vonda (Chesnut) Accurso of Raymore and Chuck Chesnut of Dardenne Prairie, Mo. And eleven grandchildren and 19 Great-grandchildren.

Christine was such a sweet and kind lady. She was a wonderful mother-in-law to my daughter. She will be missed.

Dearest Aunt Teen, there has been a great celebration in heaven with your family as you take in the glorious heavenly home your Lord and Savior prepared for you❣️ May Jesus comfort Uncle Boyce and your family as they go through the next days. Love, Marsha

Boyce, Chip, Vonda, Chuck
