Chris was born March 16, 1928, in Atlanta, Texas, the second of four children of Edd and Eva Cox Harden. Chris married John Mogle In a ceremony on March 25, 1955, in Texarkana, Texas. They remained husband and wife for 66 years before he died just a few months ago on June 28, 2021.
Together they raised four children: Larry and Ellen Thompson, from Christine’s first marriage, and Danny and David Mogle. Over many years, their family grew to include 10 Grandchildren, 9 Great-Grandchildren, and 6 Great-Great- Grandchildren.
In 1961, Chris and John moved from Atlanta to Whitehouse, where they lived for more than 50 years before moving into Rosewood Estates in Tyler.
Chris was loved by all who knew her. Her ever-present smile and huge hugs were treasured by friends and family alike.
For decades, Chris made beautiful quilts and embroidery items. She and John were avid golfers and longtime members of Hilltop Country Club in Troup. They went on golf adventures across the country with their friends.
However, nothing made her happier than being with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. Her family loved it when everyone got together because they could count on her making a batch of her delicious banana pudding.
A woman of faith who loved God and accepted Jesus as her savior, Chris spent many years worshipping at First Presbyterian Church in Troup. In the last years of her life, she attended services at Broadway Church of Christ.
She died on Oct. 4, at Homeplace, the care facility of Hospice of East Texas.
Chris was preceded in death by her brother, Earl Harden, her sister, Maxine Maris, and her son, Larry Thompson. She is survived by her brother Eddie Harden, of Tyler, daughter, Ellen Vines, of Pasadena, son, David Mogle, of Troup, son and daughter-in-law Danny and Melanie Mogle, of Tyler, and many other relatives.
The family asks people to consider donating to Hospice of East Texas (4111 University Blvd., Tyler, Texas, 75701) in Christine’s name instead of sending flowers.
