Barbara Ann Christensen, our beautiful and beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away on August 26, 2019, at the age of 77 in Mesa, Arizona. Barbara was born November 22, 1941 to Clarence and Icle (Starr) Wright in Davenport, Iowa. She married Jimmy Christensen on June 19, 1960 in Davenport, Iowa.

Barbara graduated from Davenport High School in 1959. She followed her passion to becoming a nurse and graduated from Marycrest College as a registered nurse and worked at Genesis West Hospital for 23 years. Upon retiring, Jim and Barb moved to Mesa, Arizona in 1995.

Barb was dedicated to her family and faith. She enjoyed traveling, spending time with her friends playing cards and games, and telling stories. She especially loved telling stories to her grandkids. She was an avid dog and animal lover, and loved spending time with her precious dog Desi.

She is also survived by her brother Don and many nieces and nephews.

    Barb was a very special friend of ours. We would love getting together every Friday when possible and have a super good time playing games and sharing our stories and talking about Jesus. We will miss her so much but also know she is with her Savior who she would often talk about wanting to go home to. Reunion day is coming and we will again all be together!!!
