Christie C. "Chris" Eaton, age 69 of Kinsman, died Thursday afternoon, February 8, 2018, at St. Joseph Warren Hospital following a brave battle with lung cancer.

Chris was a 1966 graduate of Lakeview High School. She attended Trumbull Business College and received her bachelors degree from Kent State University. She was an avid thespian in high school and at Kent State main campus theater, participating in several school plays. Recently retired, Chris was president and co-owner of Campbell Carpet in Cortland, having worked in the family business for over 50 years. Chris was a logophile, loved a good conversation, was witty and loved to laugh and have fun. She was known as a voracious reader and for her love of gourmet cooking and foods. She was an excellent cook and carried on her parent's tradition of the annual Scottish Hogmanay celebration of food and fellowship. Chris knew all the best stores to buy the best foods and cuts of meat. She was the family's "Julia Child" and loved ethnic foods and restaurants. She loved to travel, especially to Niagara Falls, Canada and for scuba diving with Garry on the islands of Bimini and Bonaire and the Florida Keys. She dearly loved her cats and always rescued strays; they were her children! Chris is survived by her soulmate and very best friend for the past 10 years, Garry Lee Palette; her sister, Judith C.
