Mrs. Christina Marie Saunders, age 31, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at her home.

Christina was born on March 24, 1989 in Jefferson City, Mo., the daughter of Jason R. Smith. She was married on October 12, 2013 in Jefferson City, Mo. to Mark A. Saunders who survives at the home.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Christina was a 2007 graduate of Helias Catholic High School. After graduation, Christina attended Avila University, and graduated with her BSN Nursing degree in 2012.

Christina was a natural born nurse. She worked many RN jobs, most recently with Boone Hospital Center.

Christina enjoyed traveling and made several different trips. She went to Rome with her choir family, Dauphin Island with her grandma, and Hawaii with her husband. The mission trips with her sister, Cassy, after Hurricane Katrina was important to Christina’s caring nature. Christina was very adventurous and always on the go. She always said, “half of the adventure is getting to where you are going.” Christina was very artistic and used a variety of mediums. Some of her favorite memories would be playing board and card games as a family, making sure she was teasing grandma, and sharing motherhood with her sister.

Christina will be most remembered for her kind and compassionate heart, always going above and beyond to check on others, especially her sister, and how amazing of a mommy she was to Juno.

Survivors include: her loving husband, Mark and daughter, Juno; father, Jason Smith; sister, Cassy Holzer (Isaac); brothers-in-law, Steven Saunders (Stephanie) and James Saunders (Ashten); sister-in-law, Sarah Saunders; grandmother, Sharon “Meem” Smith, aunt, Jennifer Winkelman (Robert); uncle: Ernie Smith (Christina); and several nieces, nephews, and friends.

Christina was preceded in death by: grandfather, James W. Smith; and grandmother-in-law, Barbara H. Saunders.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 until 12:00 pm Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at Freeman Mortuary. A Celebration of Life service will follow at 12:00 pm in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend Dusty Klein officiating. Graveside services will be held at Seaton Cemetery in Dixon, Mo.

The general public is welcome to attend her services while following social distancing guidelines.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Juno Saunders Education Fund.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

My heart was sadden over the loss of Christina and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose someone so loved, a part of your life, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he feels our pain. At we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have her in your life once again. May all the memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.🌻
