Born January 22, 1998 she was the cherished daughter of Lillian (Kevin Crump) and the late Sterling Buffas, and proud sister to brothers Damon, Skylar, Dalton, Daniel and Stavros Buffas and Anna Burmeister.
She was a loving auntie to Bella Buffas and Parker Burmeister. She is loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. She is the beloved granddaughter of Nancy Goldsberry.
She is preceded in death by her grandparents Angelo and Edna Buffas, and Victor Goldsberry.
Christine graduated from Nome-Beltz High School and planned to return to UAA where she began her studies in aviation to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a pilot. She enjoyed running, hiking, fishing, riding motorbikes, working on cars and being out in the country with her family and friends. She loved her work as an auto mechanic and was a dedicated employee of RJ Auto, TSR Auto, Bering Straits Regional Housing Authority and Knik Construction Company.
