Chris is also survived by her sister Pat McGinnis of Honesdale, her sister Fran Zegar of West Chester, and her sister Kit Gauss of Minnesota.  Additionally she is loved and remembered by many nieces and nephews.
Chris, or “Gamma” as she was known to her grandson Daniel, was born in Newark, NJ, to the late Doris Cease and Joseph Smith.  She spent a large portion of her childhood in the Hawley and Honesdale areas.  Chris graduated from Bridgewater Raritan High School in New Jersey, and lived most of her adult life in central New Jersey. She worked for the township of South Brunswick for twenty years, and from then until now worked for a medical group in Princeton.
