After living a number of years with the effects of Alzheimer's disease, a pneumonia tipped the scale beyond a possibility of recovery. Christiane passed peacefully on Monday evening, surrounded by friends and family.
I will always remember my mother as who she was prior. A vibrant, enthusiastic, social butterfly who lived life on her own terms. She made friends anywhere she went, and she went everywhere. From her early days travelling through Turkey and South Africa to later all over the US, Spain, Australia, and South America, she made her mark everywhere she went. I still receive phone calls from her friends all over the world asking about her. I think it says a lot about the person who she was.
I think the best word to describe Christiane is 'unique'. I don't think you'll ever find someone quite like her. She was brutally honest. She made huge decisions on a whim. She stuck by her friends. She made "interesting" drinks. She was known to believe a conspiracy theory or two. She loved her rugs and getting up at noon.
She lived life in the moment and was fiercely independent.
Her last 5 years had their challenges, but she spent them surrounded by her grandsons which she adored, in a place she loved, and independently as long as possible. Until her final days she loved sitting outside, listening to the birds and soaking up the Florida sun.
