  1. I worked with Christine at Zenith. I was in sales support for many years. She was always very nice to me. Rest in Peace, Christine.

  2. I am so sad to hear of Chrissys’s passing. She was one of my best childhood friends. We had so many amazing times in our little neighborhood. Whether it was playing hide and seek around “the big block”, beating up the boys or going uptown to Conners Pharmacy for our daily Cherry Cokes or throwing birthday parties for our pets. One year we watched the movie Sixteen Candles every single day after school. We would also listen to the Chicago 17 album for the 900 time and talk about who we wanted to dance with at the next school dance. I spent so many days giggling and swimming in her pool and visiting Sea Isle. I will never forget her contagious laugh or wonderful spirit. She always made me so happy when I was around her. My condolences to her family. Chrissy’s spirit will always be around.

  6. I moved to Kennett Square in 1980 and as it turned out Christine happened to be our neighbor. My parents would frequently hire Christine to babysit for me and my sister. I would like to say that I was mostly well behaved for her, but honestly I know I tortured her as only a 12 year old boy should.

    The fun part was that Christine knew how to manage me most of the time, and when I would get out of line there was always a swift punch to the arm that came with whatever kind of discipline that she would dole out. Many years later I ran into Christine and she reminded me of the time I was shining the flashlight out of my bedroom window while she and her friends were “setting up” for a party. ( I was such a PITA)

    It was so nice to speak with her after all those years.

    To the entire Muench, Killheffer, and Wallner families please accept my deepest condolences.

  7. I was so sad to hear of Chrissy’s passing. She was my childhood friend. I have such happy memories of sleep overs, fun times at her pool and Sea Isle City ~ also we attended our 1st concert without parents together. We went to see Bryan Adams. Her dad waited for is outside. We were so excited!! Chrissy and I painted a huge sheet with “We love you Bryan.” We had nosebleed seats but we were convinced Bryan could see us. I will always cherish these memories. I am not surprised Chrissy was a good cook as her mother made one delicious chocolate cake!! RIP Chrissy ❤️
