Up until her very final moments, she was in great spirits while engaging in one of her favorite pastimes at the Hard Rock Cafe. She leaves behind her husband of forty years, Virgil Lee Gyrion; her daughter, Sylvia Florence Gyrion; and her beloved dog, Brody.
In addition to immediate family, she is survived by six siblings, countless cousins, nieces, nephews, and in-laws, most of whom do not live locally.
Christina was born and raised in Crete, Greece, and had lived in the Jacksonville area since moving here with her husband and young daughter in the early 80s.
Christina took immense pride in taking care of her home, garden, and those whom she loved. An extremely passionate and charismatic woman, she maintained many of the traditions of her Greek heritage. Christina was an intensely compassionate, sincerely empathetic woman with a generous heart. These characteristics were displayed in her hobbies, interests, and interactions with others. Christina went out of her way to give to those in need, often bringing food and giving money to homeless individuals whom she encountered.
A woman with a great sense of humor, her laughter was hearty and infectious, captivating those around her. An enthusiastic and talented cook, Christina relished in sharing the meals she prepared with others, and emphatically savored her favorite foods. Christina also derived pleasure in playing the lottery and sometimes indulged in playing slot machines.
She possessed a genuine fondness and appreciation for all animals and was very delighted by hummingbirds. Christina also loved plants and flowers, and particularly favored roses. An energetic woman, she enjoyed going for walks, especially with her current and previous canine companions. Christina enjoyed reading, and was fascinated by historical fiction and ancient civilizations. A passionate woman who was deeply moved by music that she enjoyed, she sang and danced her heart out.
