Mrs. Boskamp worked for Illinois American Water Company. Christine was a devoted mother who always put others before herself. She cared for her mother-in-law, Grace Boskamp, for years before her passing. Christine always expressed that her sole purpose in life was her children. The amazing mother of two never missed a single game and was the biggest supporter of her children’s athletic endeavors. She was also an avid lover of the game of golf and animals. Christine braved her illness and suffering for many years, yet her faith in God never wavered. She was also a member of Our Lady Queen of Peace.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Margaret, nee Morr, Connelly; and one brother, Robert Connelly.
