With great sadness, the family of Christa Lee Heinrichs announces her passing on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at the age of 43.
Christa is survived by her parents: Diane and Ed Heinrichs; her sister, Sherrill (Perry) Allen; her niece, Brittany (Dave) Willms; her nephew Cody Allen; and her pride and joy, her daughter, Melissa Chan.
Diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 18, Christa courageously battled with her disease for over two decades. Her gentle spirit, kind heart and incredible strength were reflected in her role as a mother. Christa’s greatest accomplishment was raising Melissa in a happy, Christian environment under very trying medical circumstances.
A Funeral Service to celebrate Christa’s Life will be held on Monday, September 28, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at Meadowlands Baptist Church, 2215 – 17 Street NW, Edmonton, with viewing at 9:30 am.
Memorial donations in Christa’s memory may be made to the Wycliffe Bible Translators or the Canadian Mental Health Association.
