Virginia Beach—Christine “Chris” Ohlstein of Virginia Beach passed peacefully at 2:34 am on March 2, 2022 after a brief illness, surrounded by her family.

She was a nurse and then a nurse practitioner, as well as a volunteer with the Health Department during the pandemic, which was consistent with her heartfelt desire to help the sick and suffering. Her ultimate dream was to acquire a large amount of land in order to create a refuge for unwanted, abused, and neglected animals. Her home was always shared with dogs.

She fiercely loved her family and her very wide circle of friends. She also loved the New England Patriots. At times it was hard to know which she loved more.

She is survived by her husband, Jim “James”, her daughter, Katelyn of Virginia Beach, two stepchildren whom she loved like her own, Jeff of Brooklyn N.Y. and Laurie of Washington DC, her parents, Maurice and Teresa Caron of Lowell, Mass., her sister Priscilla Durand and her husband, Paul of Lowell, Mass., brother Richard and his wife, Kim of Pelham, N.H., brother Roger and his wife, Elaine of Lowell, Mass., many nieces and nephews, as well as several great nieces and great nephews, and, of course, too many friends to name. She was predeceased by her brother, Paul Caron.

A graveside service took place at Colonial Grove Memorial Park, officiated by dear friend, Rabbi Israel Zoberman.
