She had trained & graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1973 from the Dagupan City School of Nursing Polyclinic Hospital in the Philippines. Cristy immigrated to Edmonton, Alberta in 1975, becoming a Canadian citizen in 1979, where she ended up working as a nursing attendant at both the Eric Cormack Centre and St. Michael’s Extended Care facility until her retirement in 2007. Cristina had overcome many obstacles in life, but had also contended with multiple health issues in her later years.

Predeceased by her parents and older sisters, Conchita Sandaga and Clara Gapuz; she is survived by her loving family; husband of 40 years, Efren Cruz DeJesus; 2 daughters, Michelle Winchester and Cheryl Chan; 3 sons, Jason DeJesus, Efren Jr. DeJesus, and Edwin DeJesus; and 3 grandchildren, Hailey Winchester, Penelope and Clara Chan.
