Chris was born on
June 15, 1953, in Saginaw, Michigan, to Jean and John Arch. On March 30,
1974, she married Daniel Hager of Chesterton. They were happily married 44
years raising two boys, Timothy Alan residing in Munster, Indiana and Scott
Lawrence in Johns Creek, Georgia.
Chris spent years
managing a professional cake making business, helping others celebrate
weddings and special events around Northwest Indiana with deliciously
beautiful cakes. This venture quickly gained her the reputation as
Chesterton’s very own “cake lady”. Her many hobbies included gardening,
scrapbooking, RV travel, family gatherings, and cookouts. She was a
passionate animal rights supporter and was an active member of the ASPCA
(American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). She also worked
for several years at the YMCA’s after school programs helping kids achieve a
better start in life.
Her family paid
this tribute to her, “Chris was one of the kindest people you could ever
meet, she always opened her home and her heart to family and friends. She
was a devoted Mother and Grandmother who would go to great lengths to ensure
her loved ones were happy and well cared for. All who knew her were blessed
to have met an angel in their lifetime. She will be dearly missed.”
She is survived by
her Husband and two Sons, her Grandchildren Victoria and Logan, her Mother
and Sister, Linda Walker, Daughter-in-law’s Lauren Devine-Hager and Chris
Stoettner-Hager, and her beloved Basset Hound, Gracie.
She is preceded in
death by her Father and Brother, Jack Arch.
