She attended and graduated from Ogden High School with the class of 1984. Chris went on to attend and obtain her degree as a dental hygienist and worked in the field briefly. She was united in marriage to Dale Henry Bruns on February 16, 1991, in Boone, IA. Chris and Dale made their home in Stout, where Chris was a stay at home mother to her three wonderful daughters Brooke, Morgan, and McKaila. She worked several different jobs alongside being a farm-wife throughout the years. What never changed, was her personality or her self-giving nature. Chris loved spending her time with her family, especially her grandchildren; she also enjoyed demoting Dale as her children and grandchildren were born, as he sunk lower and lower on the totem pole. Chris and Dale would later move to the family farm that Dale had fixed up outside of Dike in 2001. Chris was in usual form, procrastinating the move; the family helped her out, packing in one day and surprised her, to her dismay. Chris’s life revolved around her family; while she enjoyed attempting to grow vegetables in her garden, her best time was spent with others. She had been selling clothes through Lu-La-Roe for 4 years and enjoyed the interactions with her customers immensely. While its hard to sum up the incredible life that Chris lived, the bright light that was her, even though gone, the warmth that she left behind remains. Christine is survived by her loving husband Dale of Dike; daughters Brooke (Nick) Spencer of Stout, Morgan (Nick) Corwin of Cedar Falls, and McKaila (Joseph) Gorby of Stout; parents Jerry (Donna) Thompson and Jacqueline (Steve) Toyne; grandchildren Zoey Spencer, Kaiden and Lennox Corwin, Laityn and Kendrix Gorby; brother Chad (Kristi Post) Thompson of Boone; sisters Sheila Thompson of Boone, Mandie (Jamie) Scott, and Francie (Joe) Aumua; grandmother Mildred Steinick; sister-in-law Tammy (Chuck) Chandler; brother-in-law David; many aunts and uncles; many nieces and nephews and one great-nephew. She was preceded in death by her sister Chantyl McCoy, maternal grandfather, paternal grandparents, mother-in-law Enola Burns, and father-in-law Raymond Burns.
