Biography

  • Birth: Christine Jo Barnes was born on October 12, 1941 in Oregon.
  • Marriage: She and Leon E Jensen were married on November 23, 1960.
  • Death: Christine Jo Barnes died on June 30, 2010, at age 68.
  • Note: Christina Jo Heindel's journey on Earth ended on June 30, 2010, at home. Chris was the daughter of Howard B. Barnes Sr. and Dorthea Rae (Potts) Barnes. Chris started her journey on October 12, 1941, in Lakeview, Oregon. She spent the first six years of school in many different settings, including a one room school when she was in the fourth grade. Most of this time was spent in logging communities. Her family then settled in Pierce, Idaho, where she graduated from high school with the class of 1959. She then moved to Spokane, Washington, to further her education. She married her first husband, Leon E. Jensen, who was serving in the U.S. Air Force, on November 23, 1960. After her schooling, she started working for the State of Washington in the Juvenile Parole Office. Her first child, Catherine Janet, was born while living in Spokane.

    Her family then moved to Mountain, Wisconsin, and lived for a brief period, before moving to Green Bay. Their second daughter, Sue Ann, was born on March 15, 1964. Chris started working for the State of Wisconsin in the Department of Health and Family Services in 1965. She retired after 36 years of service with the state. She married Paul G. Heindel on June 24, 1983, in Green Bay, and then moved to Kaukauna.

    Chris was an avid reader, always having a book or two in progress. She had a special passion for history, especially World War II. She also loved gardening, planting many flowers and vegetables in her garden. She always had plants left for anyone that wanted one. After retiring, Chris started volunteering at the Green Bay Botanical Gardens and was also volunteered as an usher for the Fox Cities PAC in Appleton. She thoroughly enjoyed both jobs.

    Chris is survived by her husband, Paul, Kaukauna; daughters, Catherine (Todd) Heggesta, Portage, and Sue Ann Ruby, Green Bay; a brother, Howard B. Barnes, Jr. (Benny), Seattle, Washington; a niece, Corrina Johnson, Seattle, Washington; and a nephew, Daniel Barnes, Spokane, Washington. She is further survived by six stepchildren, Mark (Mary) Heindel, Kaukauna; Paula (Brian) Jacobs, Little Chute; Adam (Colleen) Heindel, Kaukauna; Shane (Pam) Heindel, Lima, Ohio; Kevin (Cristina) Heindel, Kaukauna; and Bart (Stacey) Heindel, Kaukauna; 16 grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. Chris was a friend of Bill W. for 30 years.

    Her family is honoring Chris' wishes and no services will be held.

    A special thank you to so many who helped Chris through her final journey. Cathy — for always being there when she was needed; Sue — for making the load easier and helping with housekeeping; Paula — for all the "meals on wheels" she prepared; Mark — for his weekly visits; Sylvia — for her many visits, cards and books. An extra special thank you to her husband, Paul, who was always there when she needed him most.

    A special thank you also goes to Theda Care Home/Hospice for all their compassion and wonderful support, especially to nurse Mary, and her social worker, Teri.
