MIDDLE POINT – Christine “Chris” (Mason) Stephenson, 70, of Middle Point went to be with her lord and savior in the early morning of Saturday, Nov. 2, at her home.

She was born May 4, 1949, in Lorain to Naomi “Jane” (Stuckey) and the late Richard Mason.

On Feb. 24, 1973, Christine married Harry Stephenson and shared 46 memorable years together. Chris and Harry were also proud foster parents, raising 37 foster children over the years.

Chris is survived by her mother, Naomi; sons, Charles (Michele) of Morse Bluff, Nebraska, and Samuel of Toledo; brother, Randy (Sharon) Mason of Middle Point; sisters, Sandy (Tim) Bachtol and Kim Mason of Van Wert; grandchildren, Camden, Erica, Alaina, Colin, Steven, Anna, Jasmine, Grace and Olivia; a nephew; three nieces; 10 great-nieces and nephews; and one special great-great niece.

Christine is also preceded in death by her mother and father-in-law, Harold (Ruth) Stephenson; and brother-in-law, David.

She attended Zion Christian Union and was simply a faithful servant. She spent her time as a homemaker, showing her support to her family, extended church family and beloved Lincolnview Lancers. Following retirement, Chris and Harry drove for Lee Kintsle GM Sales. Chris was also an avid sports enthusiast, making sure that if the Buckeyes were playing, she was watching it.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday at Zion Christian Union, 3025 Converse Roselm Road, Grover Hill.

Preferred memorials may be directed to CHP Hospice, or the Lincolnview Athletic Department.
