    Beautiful, humble and great lady who loved her family and she was not afraid of hard work and service to others-she made a lot of house slippers for others on her breaks while she worked at Skaggs on East Main Street in Mesa. Surely there is a great reunion going on at this time!!!!

    Christeen was a dear friend of ours for years, especially when we lived in 28th Ward and her husband was our Bishop. She remained our dear friend throughout the years. She was a special lady. She always sent us our very first Christmas card every year, we could count of that. She was always interested in our family and we loved to talk to her. Over the years we moved to another Ward, but she remained a very special friend over the years. I thought of her every time I drove past her house on University. I wish now that I had called her more often. My husband, Donald Glen Millett just passed away in March, I’m sure they will connect in the next world. My deepest condolences to all her family.

    I loved this great lady and I know she will be missed by all who knew her. She was an important part of my life as is her daughter, Jerilyn.

    What a great lady and kind soul Auntie Teen was. We are in month 15 of our 23 month mission for the LDS Church and couldn’t make arrangements to be there. To all of our cousins and friends, we love you and hope to see you sometime. My brother Gerald had a massive heart attack at about the same time that Auntie Teen passed. He is doing well but we pass along his love and condolences to you all. God be with you Aunt Teen, Till we meet again.
