Our dear mother, Christine “Chris” Leick, formerly Christine Miller, sadly passed away on July 30, 2022, at the age of 66.

Chris was born on July 27, 1956, to John Paul and Jeannette (nee Feltes) Rydzik. She grew up in Waterford, attending St. Thomas and Waterford Union High School.

Chris was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her. She had many friends and was a well-loved member of the Waterford community. Her passion for taking care of children was evident in her many years working as a daycare teacher. She loved Mickey Mouse and the color red. She had a love for life and family. Her favorite quote was “Love you to the back of the moon”.
