Christine M. Wing
1951 – 2019
Chris passed away on January 23, 2019 after an extended illness.
She was born in Council, Idaho to Jack and Shirley Wing. Growing up, she was fortunate to be surrounded by many loving relatives, including a very dear, older brother, Ernie. Her days were filled with bike rides in the summer, sledding in the winter, Tarzan movies, and Nancy Drew mysteries. In her spare time, she tended to six or so orphaned cats and brought home pollywogs from the nearby pond.
Her family moved to Payette in 1962, where she formed lasting friendships which she treasured all her life. After college, she moved to Boise, where she has continued to reside. Although Chris spent many years working outside the home, her greatest satisfaction came from raising her children. Additionally, she enjoyed volunteering, be it political campaigns, her childrens’ schools, or for local hospice organizations.
She leaves behind her husband of 30 years, Rick Rogers. Together they raised three children; Julia Dickson Kanouse (Adam), Matthew Dickson (Jessica), and Laura Rogers (Zac). Her great joy in being a mother was equaled later in life by her delight in being a grandmother to Avery, Kendall, Abraham, Savannah, Annabelle, and Adalynn.
Chris’ family wishes to thank her friends and neighbors for their kindness and support. Our deep appreciation to Heart ‘n Home Hospice for taking such loving care of her. Honoring her request, the family will hold a private service.
