She was born January 12, 1997, at Winneshiek County Memorial Hospital in Decorah, to Terry and Joyce (Soukup) Lund. She was a lifelong Spring Grove resident, and a member of the 2015 class of Spring Grove High School. Christine had worked at Ivy Grove Café and Tweeten Lutheran Healthcare Center, both in Spring Grove, and had recently been hired at Stoney Creek Inn in Waukon. Christine enjoyed outdoor sports including mud-bogging with her boyfriend Dustin (DJ) Ward, riding motorcycles with her dad Terry, and camping and having bonfires with her friends and family. She enjoyed baking and cooking, and loved to sing, was very talented in crafts (including making a bench out of wood pallets), and enjoyed her dog Boots and her dad’s dog Jasmine. But her greatest joy in life was being a loving daughter, a one-of- a-kind sister and especially a wonderful and protective mother to her son Brayden.
Christine is survived by her parents, Terry and Joyce (Soukup) Lund of Spring Grove; her son, Brayden Lee Lund, of Spring Grove; her sister, Kala (Miles) Johanningmeier of Ossian; and her very special niece, Alexis; her paternal and maternal grandmothers Mary Lund of Canton, Minn. and Nancy Soukup of Lanesboro, Minn.; her boyfriend, Dustin (DJ) Ward of Waukon; her neighbors and adoptive grandparents, Guy and Bonnie Gregerson of Spring Grove; many aaunts, uncles, and great-aunts and great-uncles, cousins; and many, many friends.
In addition to her grandfathers Paul Soukup and Oscar Lund, she was preceded in death by her great-grandparents Henry and Theodora Poppenfuss and Ruby and Marvin Monson, and several aunts and uncles.
