Mrs. Christenson was a veteran, serving in World War II. She spent much of her married life in Urbana. She worked at the cosmetic counter at Carson Pirie Scott in Urbana for a number of years, was active in St. Patrick Catholic Church, was a member of TTT, and enjoyed playing bridge. The last few years she lived with her son, Thomas, his wife, Katie, and their family in Makanda. She was a joy to be with during her last years, was always devoted to her family and was fun to be with. She usually had a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye and was loved by all who knew her. She will be missed.
