I knew her as Chrissy as she and her entire family spent a lot of time at the Cleaver homestead as children. We had many a tractor rides, sleigh rides, and so many games we all played together. I have so many wonderful and fond memories.

Condolence From: Ann Brown
Condolence: Dear John and Kathy,
My heart breaks for you both. I read over the wonderful memories and condolences people wrote. What a wonderful person and life Chris lived and shared with her friends and community. I will forever remember the Holy Molely story her students shared. IT was touching and a tribute to Chris and the teacher she was to her students. We are give a walk through in this life and I would certainly say Chris left many footprints and made her community a better place for all.

So sorry for you loss. Watching the webcast of the service was very impressive. The turn out of her co-workers and students in attendance and the comforting words shared truly shows the legacy she has left for you to cherish and remember her wonderful life. May you have peace with God's Love.

Condolence From: Leslie Cleaver Zoltowski
Condolence: Sincere condolences to the Dech family. So sorry to hear about Chris. There are so many childhood memories... the endless summers riding the tractor around the fields, catching lightning bugs, hide and seek in the corn fields, the winter fun sledding down the hill, the camping excursions all come flooding back. I hope you find solace in the memories and know you are all in my prayers.

Condolence: Sorry for your Lost

Ms. Dech favorite animal was moles. It was so cute it matched her personality. She always made us do Holy Moleys they helped us grow a better relationship with her. We got to tell her how we felt about class. We truly miss you and that golden smile .
A thousand Holy Moleys won't bring you back ,we know because we have tried ; neither will a thousand tears , because we have cried. We know you are looking over all of your moles right now we are making you happy and we will forever love you until we meet again.
Serenity and Diasia ❤️

Condolence: My Condolence's go out to the family and friends of Christine or "Coach Dech ". She was my high school volleyball coach at Oscar Smith between O4-05 and a great soul. When I moved to the area she immediately recognized my scholastic abilities and ensured I was in her Honors Chemistry class. When I didn't believe in myself, she pushed me. She was a tough teacher, but she never gave up on me. She held a high standard for her players both on the court and in the classroom and I always tried to live up to her expectations. I am grateful to have known Ms. Dech and I know she is at peace. May she and her family have Peace and Healing in this time of grief..
