Chris married Vaughn Smith after High School and together they traveled the world as an Airforce family. She loved to travel and experience the cultures of the many countries she lived in and visited. Chris collected museum books every where, she wanted to see every thing. Chris was a beautiful soul and she made long lasting friendships every place she went.
Chris settled, after many years traveling, in Lakewood. She and John McNaughton got together and lived their life there.
Chris was the best Mother. She would do anything for her children and her granddaughters. She was funny, smart and so very loving. She was everyone's "Mom". She was always there with hugs, laughs, love and food and all were welcome.
She tried new things and never aged a day until Alzheimers came for her.
Chris was unique. She loved her family with her whole heart, all the time. She was strong and brave and beautiful. Her passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts and lives. She will always be loved and she'll be greatly missed.
