Chris was such a big part of my life, she was my sister Paula’s best friend. Her Dad, Carl would always just hang the phone up when he was finished talking to people, but Carl called me Judith, and he always said good bye to me. Chris would often ask me, how do you get my Dad to say good bye. I worked at Driftwood for 7 summers!!! I have so many memories from working and being with Chris and Paula on our shopping trips to Chicago, Shipsawana, casinos up north, and riding in the back seat of a fancy car, it was Carl & Lucille’s, Carl dropped the 3 of us off and came back and picked us up. On the way home I got car sick, I know Paula was close to puking, and Chris was saying don’t worry are you okay? When I turned 18 they tied my legs, arms, blind folded me turned me around in circles then put me in the back of Chris’s truck, started to leave me at the little cemetery in Sister Lakes, glad they didn’t, I ended up with a fun surprise birthday party. We’d sit on the wall, go to orchard parties, swim, then about 2-3 in the morning Chris would unlock Driftwood, she’d say “I think I need some mint chocolate chip”, it was always after her deciding a little scoop was ok!!! And as quiet as we thought we were, we would wake up Carl, he’d open the door and start yelling saying Chris what are you doing, then he’d notice me and say oh hi Judith, then mumble something and go back up stairs. Chris and Paula I’m sure were stuck with me much more than they ever wanted, but I was very fortunate to have the two best friends to get dragged along. Between Chris’s giggles and my sisters snorts Iam forever so fortunate to have such beautiful, fond memories. Thank you for being such an important part of our Winchester family, cause Chris was Family. She was such a strong willed, caring and giving lady. I will forever hold the wonderful memories, and cherish the unconditional love that Chris shared with everyone that she knew. Chris and Paula I’m sure are giggling and snorting and sending rays of good health and love to us ❤️
Chuck, You know that I’m always here for you, your wife touched many lives, she was a vibrant and fun loving lady. David & family, thanks for sharing such a wonderful person that I will forever miss, she was like a sister and role model to me.
I love you Chris, Judy Winchester
