Chris was a major founding contributor to the Lucky Dog shelter, where she worked as a volunteer and adopted several dogs over the years.
Chris is survived by her loving husband Harry, her foster son Hector, his wife Elvia and their family, three brothers, a sister and several much loved nieces and nephews..
