"Dearest Christa,

Today, on what would have been your 75th birthday, my day is filled with countless memories of our 50 years together and the 50 birthdays we jointly celebrated every midnight on November 30.

You are no longer with us, but you are remaining in my heart and in the hearts of all the many friends you have touched over the years.

I think about you every day. I love and will always love you and I am hoping to rejoin you in heaven someday.

In loving memory, Klaus"

"You won't believe this, Christa, but just last week Pascale found some  photos of our "Good Times" days with you and Klaus. Did we have good times or what, eh? (always Canadian, eh?) We miss your warmth, your generous spirit, and your down-to-earth humour. And your big hugs! Times spent with you and Klaus in Montreal and all over North America were some of the best of our lives. You'll always be with us.
With a big hug from Pascale and me."

"Christa, Klaus and family have been a part of our family for such a long time.  It is still hard to believe that she is up in heaven with my Dad, Seymour.  The thought and memories of our times together fill my heart and soul.  Christa would light up any room she walked into, such a beauty with a smile or a grin and a sense of humor. Miss you lots.
Love you all,
xoxoxoxo
Laura"

This tribute was added by Klaus Peters on 6th August 2016

"Dearest Christa,

Today exactly 5 years ago, I encountered the worst night ever in my entire life. God called you home and I would never see you again while I am alive. You were the love of my life for over 50 years. How could I possibly live without you. We were always together. For decades, I never travelled anywhere without you. We always loved to have company, but we were equally happy just being by ourselves.

My personal savior was the realization, that I was so very fortunate to be able to share 50 years of my life with, in a loving relationship, with the most wonderful and loving person alive. Adding to this was he fact that you didn't have to suffer, when you so quickly and unexpected left this world, with me being next to you.

I loved and love you so very much my dearest Christa."

This tribute was added by Klaus Peters on 22nd December 2015

"Dearest Christa,
Christmas is only 3 days away and I am thinking of you all the time. I remember the 51 Christmases we spend together. After Sabine was born and old enough to go to the movies, every Christmas eve for more than 30 years, I would take her to the movies in the afternoon and you prepared our home so beautifully for our Christmas celebration.
My love to you will never fade. I miss you, your amazing personality and most of all your love, but I am so very fortunate that our loving relationship lasted for 50 years. Rest in peace knowing how much you are loved by so many people."

right answers.  We miss her very much.  Love, Mel and Gail Ball"

"Shortly after our move to Islamorada, we were so lucky to meet Klaus and Christa while lunching at Cheeca Lodge. It wasn't long before Christa was a close girlfriend and we made many shopping trips to Miami, as well as sharing many fun times together as couples. She had class, style, a great sense of humor and of course great taste! I will always miss my wonderful friend."

This tribute was added by Claudio Nardini on 8th August 2013

"Christa was a very special lady & friend. I had the privilege to meet her in late 80s in Dearborn(MI) while Klaus was working at Hyatt. A very open-hearted, friendly and charming lady, always ready to assist in any possible way. Full of joy and wished to be with her friends as she cared a lot. Indeed, a smiling good poker player. What a loss for all and in particular for Klaus. God bless."

This tribute was added by Bill Weld on 7th August 2013

"Christa: was  a Special Lady; From the time I met her in Montreal to the last time I saw her she always had a wonderful smile and outlook on life. In Montreal she was the only woman we would allow to play in our Poker Games and she, always with a smile on her face took me to the proverbial cleaners...While I miss all the money of mine she took with her, I miss her as Klaus does even more."

This tribute was added by Jennifer Gould on 7th August 2013

This tribute was added by Klaus Peters on 9th May 2013

"It is impossible to guess the number of people, who were so positively touched by Christa. I will never forget the first day I met her at age 16, 52 years ago. It was the start of the most beautiful, loving relationship one could possibly imagine and still today, I feel so very fortunate, that I was able to share 50 wonderful years with such an amazing, compassionate human being."
