Chris graduated from Aberdeen Hospital School of Nursing in 1957, and worked as a Registered Nurse until she retired from the Miramichi Hospital in Newcastle. Chris often told stories of their travels while stationed in France from 1959-1963. That’s where she began her love of camping, and spent many happy times enjoying our national parks in the years that followed. She played an active role in her church and was on the steering committee of the NB Christian Ashram.
