    Speaking from the “Pilots” side of her Mid-Continent Airmotive family, Chris will truely
    be remembered as a source of laughter and kindness. Even after a 20 year absense, I called her and she “knew” my voice. Thats what I call a class act. We are missing her already.

  3. I am so saddened today as I read about Chris in the newspaper. A few years ago she and I exercised at Curves on NW 39th. Faithfully, she always came in after work with enthusiasm and lifted up the spirits of all of us exercising.

    She talked quite a lot of her father and how he played tennis every day. I play piano also and would hear about her lesson and the piece she was learning. I suggested a piano tuner which she used and was very happy with.

    Chris Pickle truly blessed my life – I will always remember her beautiful smile and be uplifted in remembering her humor and enthusiasm.

    My sincere sympathy is extended to her family.
