Kristin Christ~~~"It appears we always research daddies b/c of our last name... but today I'd like to say Happy Mother's Day to all of the Christ's Mother - Antonia Janish. She had 11 pregnancies (2 children died in infancy) and raised 9 kids all on her own when her husband, Emil, died very young from Typhoid Fever... AND she did this during the depression. Without her, none of the Christ kids would exist. Here's to her - a resilient woman who because of her love, devotion, and strong character raised wonderful kids who then went on to be wonderful dad's and moms to their children. ♥ Also, Happy Mother's Day to Anna, Emily, Lillie, & Edna - and to Emil's sister - Mary Christ Zogg."
