Dear daughter of Floyd Wood and the late Joyce Wood. Dear sister of Floyd III, Barbara Ann, Benjamin, Kevin, Keith, Timothy (Norelys), and the late Peter Wood. Dear niece, aunt, cousin, and friend to many. Chris was the proud proprietor of Wentzville Garden and Greenhouse which she happily opened during March of 1997 and continued to operate through the summer of 2006 when she reluctantly had to close her business due to health concerns. Chris had a special skill for growing and selling flowers and when all of the flowers she nurtured were in full bloom her greenhouse and the surrounding grounds were a beautiful sight to see. Chris was known for her ability to put together potted arrangements of all sizes and varieties of flowers. She had so many loyal customers who would come back each spring to buy their customized potted arrangements to put on their porches, decks or at their places of business. Chris dearly loved her husband, son, stepsons, father, her entire family and her many friends. The holiday meals and summer barbecues she planned and prepared made for so many happy family gatherings. Her strong faith in Jesus Christ along with the God-given medical expertise of Dr. Nancy Bartlett and the other staff members at the Siteman Cancer Center helped Chris fight into remission her 6 previous battles with cancer during the past 18 years. May the genuine kindness, compassion and love that she touched so many lives with be an example for all of us to follow.
