Christina Kitchener

Honored Nurse

April 9, 1977 to April 3, 2022

Christina graduated from North East High School and from Penn State Behrend University, where she obtained her B.S. in Nursing. She went on to have a successful nursing career and touched the lives of many patients. Christina had a heart of gold and her generosity knew no bounds. She was loved by her family and friends more than she ever knew, and her children and grandchild were her world.

Some of her favorite outdoor activities were searching for beach glass, skiing, and exploring Lake Erie on her jet ski. She was never afraid to take on a home improvement project and always had a Dr. Pepper in hand. Christina wasn’t afraid to be herself and encouraged those around her to do the same.
