Immediately after their honeymoon to Acapulco they moved to Norwell, Massachusetts where they started their family and lived for 8 years.

In addition to being a homemaker, she did work for 15 years with ANJEC in Mendham before retiring in 2005. She was also a Parishioner of Resurrection Parish, Randolph since 1978 and on the Social Committee for many years. Chris loved having fun, entertaining, dancing, and traveling. She kept a detailed map with pin placements of all the places and countries she visited with her husband.
