Christina Santa, 68, died Jan. 29, 2019. She was born April 18, 1950, to Clarence Reum (1912-1954) and Freda Starkel Reum (1920-2000).
She was a hard worker all of her life, graduating from Polson High School, moving on to Boeing Aircraft Company in Washington State. She finished her career at Anaconda Aluminum in Columbia Falls. She was co-owner of a Kalispell restaurant at one time.
Christina leaves behind her daughters Christi Rezgui, Lori Kurta (John) and Kari Parsons (Mike). Grandchildren include Cory Braaten (Amanda), Caitlyn (Dylan), Wylie, Danny, Jordan, Shaylene, and Virginia who all made her smile. Brothers and sisters include Don (Carol) Reum, Pete (Karen) Reum, Alma Westphal, Diane (Vern) Rice, Conrad (Becky) Starkel, Ronald Reum (deceased), and many nieces and nephews.
Christina loved her family time, time with her sisters, calls/visits from her brothers and families, and family events.
She passed away in Grand Junction, Colo., near her youngest daughter and family, and was able to share time with four of her helpful grandchildren. Cory and Amanda brought great grandchildren Jack and Dean into her life and Caitlyn and Dylan brought great granddaughter, Harley, to share time and love with for almost a year! The Lord was a friend and comforter.
Family and friends will gather for services at Fairview Cemetery at 11 a.m., June 29, with a memorial potluck following from 1 to 4 p.m. at Lawrence Park in Kalispell, for friends and family.
