CHRISTINE ELIZABETH PLAUSTEINER, of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully on Monday, November 14th, 2016 at the age of 36 years.

Christine is the loving mother of Alyssa May Jane, Michel Megan-Jean, and Kiarra Marie. She is also survived by her parents Frank (Stephanie) Plausteiner and Bonnie (Hank) Morin, as well as her sister; Lisa (Jason) Plausteiner.

Christine is predeceased by her grandmothers Johanna Plausteiner and Ethel Campbell.

Born on December 23, 1979, Christine came into the world a month early. She was so small that she was brought to her mom and dad in a Christmas stocking. Being born so close to Christmas, she always believed her birthday to be that much more special. Christmas was always her favorite time of year.

As a child, she had a mind for activity and adventure. Swimming, skating, skiing and a lot of camping was what she loved to do, although she also cherished quiet moments. She loved road trips with her dad and quiet snuggles with her mom most of all.

Her vibrant personality drew those around her close. She always wore a smile and encouraged others to do the same. In fact, one of her favorite sayings was “Don’t forget to wear your smile”. She repeated this to everyone. She was a kind, caring, loving person who would never hesitate to help another out.

She found her professional calling as a Health Care Aide. She worked for over ten years at two Extendicare locations. She loved the residents she worked with and they all loved her. In her work, she always showed patience, attentiveness and compassion.

Christine’s proudest accomplishment were her three beautiful daughters, Alyssa, Michel, and Kiarra. They were the light of her life. She drew strength from them and loved them with everything in her. In those girls, you can see all that was wonderful in Christine.

Christine will be missed by everyone who knew her. She was called daughter, sister, mother, and friend and wore each of those titles proudly. She loved life and loved those in her life. Although it is too soon to say goodbye, we are better to have known her for the time we did.

A Celebration of Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME – 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, Alberta on Friday, November 18, 2016 at 1:00 P.M. Those that wish may come and pay their respects prior to the service between 12:00 – 1:00 P.M.

Cremation to follow Celebration of Life.
