As the song lyric,”Go rest high on the mountain”, Chindel these words are for you my friend. Somehow two totally different people became friends. What fun times we had working together as surgical techs and than went on and became Registered Nurses👍 Thru our bad times, I knew you always had my back. You and Susan Duff were a handful apart but together you two were trouble with a T. I loved you both and the stories I could tell, wow, people would love to hear. You had so much compassion for children and those less fortunate and in our hearts you will always be Chindel❤️🍦

Chindel is one of those people God places in your life for whom you are eternally grateful and thankful that He did. Although I did not know her as well as many, I shall miss her sweet heart and her presence at Blazers' girl softball games. Rest in peace, my friend....

Beautiful soul Chindel had. We met in 1973, played softball together for several years. We became good friends instantly.
She was the most loyal friend I'd ever had, always had my back.
Rest on sweet gal, love you.

Never was I around Chindel that she wasn't sharing a great story and had me smiling and laughing! She always brought a happy moment to any and every occasion! She was one of a kind, and a very KIND and special person.

What to say about Chindel? So many memories come flowing back! I knew Chindel as a younger woman and even then she was a “old soul”. She was wise beyond her years and a gave me some of the best advice I’ve ever been given. I would go on to use for the rest of my life. I was complaining to her about my busy, complicated world and she just looked at me and said “Elizabeth, life is as simple as you want it to be”. I changed my life and it made all the difference. I would like to think she kept her life simple and enjoyed the things that really mattered. I’ll miss you my friend
