It is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to Christina Ann Elizabeth Inman, 55, of Fremont, Ohio. A woman who defied expectations and lit up the world around her. She faced the challenges of life head-on and left an indelible mark on everyone she encountered. Christina’s unrelenting determination to beat cancer alongside “Team Inman” was matched only by her infectious laughter and incredible sense of humor. Born on a winter’s day in Binghamton, NY. in 1968 to the late Roger and Elizabeth (Orzell) Marsh, Christina was, a loving wife, a proud mother, and friend to many.
She stood at a modest 5 foot 3 inches, but her presence was larger than life. She painted a canvas of her life with vibrant colors that would touch the hearts of many across state lines. She was a 1986 graduate of Seton Catholic Central High School in Binghamton, New York, and later earned a certificate in beauty school. She was a former Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield employee in Western New York, where she worked in the Medicare Division. She approached her work with the same unwavering commitment she showed in her personal life, always putting others before herself.
Christina challenged her loved ones to be their best selves and never settled for anything less. When it came to planning get-togethers, Christina wasn’t one to just suggest an idea and let it fizzle out. No, she made sure those plans became a reality. Christina knew how to create forever cherished moments of joy and laughter with her loved ones.
She found solace and tranquility in her sunroom, with her best buddy, and pet companion, Ruby. Even when snow blanketed the ground, while others complained, Christina would marvel at the beauty it brought. Christina loved to travel, she had an eye for the extraordinary and appreciated the simple pleasures in life, like shopping at local produce stands, scoring a good deal, and was someone who’d go the extra mile to shop at an international grocery store for culinary delights.
Christina’s love for chocolate was no secret, and her recipe collection was a treasure trove of deliciousness, her generosity extended beyond treats. She had a large heart, was a shoulder to cry on, and had a genuine concern for those around her. She was a second mom to many, offering unwavering support and wisdom that could only come from a true friend. Her laughter was contagious. Her beaming smile could brighten even the gloomiest of days. She shared stories and gave advice thoughtfully, always finding the silver lining and spreading hope wherever she went.
Christina’s legacy goes far beyond the time with long friends and close family. Even in fleeting interactions, she made a lasting impact. A phone call with her would stretch for hours as she reveled in catching up and reminiscing about old memories. She had an unparalleled ability to make deep connections with others, leaving them feeling heard, and understood. All would agree she has left a mark on her “Buddies” lives, and we are forever grateful for the privilege of knowing her.
Christina is survived by her loving husband of 24 years, Kai Edward Inman, whom she married September 5, 1998; her two daughters, Amanda Haley of Binghamton, NY. and Grace (Thomas Bethel) Inman of Fremont, OH.; many grandchildren; her sister-in-law and lifelong friend, Amy Lea of Mechanicsburg, PA.; many other relatives, and her Heights Baton Family.
