Christine Jeitner Hanna, born July 18, 1952, passed away on August 4, 2022. She died surrounded by family at home in Turnersville, NJ.
Chris believed in family. Raised in Haddon Heights, Chris was the youngest of three children and the only daughter of William and Louise Jeitner. She was proud of her father's military service. She was part of a large extended Italian family, including numerous cousins with whom she remained close until the end of her life. She married Wesley Hanna in 1972 and had three sons: Wesley (1978), Jeffrey (1981), and Scott (1985). She was the quintessential boys' mom. She said "I love you" daily, and always wanted to know that her children were safe. She enjoyed spoiling her grandchildren Olive, Ruby, Demi, and Lance. Chris selflessly cared for her brother Jim and her mother in their time of illness, and was cared for in kind by her sons and husband during her own final days.
Chris connected with people over the kitchen table. Her family enjoyed an abundance of home cooked meals, each one made with love.
Chris was nurturing. She loved her dogs and cats, especially her beloved beagle Tucker.
Chris was a hard worker. She simultaneously made her house a home and worked as a legal secretary, serving in the latter role for decades to fund her sons' higher educations. She retired from that role to become the office manager of her son Jeff's private practice, making his office bright and friendly.
Chris was fun. She liked entertaining. She liked to go out. She loved to dance. She enjoyed the boardwalk down the shore because she loved to watch all the different people having fun. Chris made friends easy and kept many of them forever.
Chris will be dearly missed. She is survived by her husband, sons, grandchildren, and brother Bill.
If you knew Chris, you'd know she loved flowers but wouldn't want lilies. She'd be better represented by flamingos than butterflies.
