Christine Diane Wingender

Christine Dianne Wingender passed on to become a guardian angel on November 3, 2021.

Born January 14, 1958 in Colorado, our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, auntie, and great friend had a “Heart of gold big as the outdoors” as she would say. Her three girls were her world, and she loved her family more than anything. She loved having someone to sit with her to B.S. and play her favorite games which include cribbage, Othello, 10,000, and solitaire. We can’t forget how much she loved to be at the casino.

She could put a smile on anyone’s face with her humor. Her humor will not only be remembered but passed down through the generations.

“This is why we can’t have nice things.”
