Lynn Alison Christen

October 27, 1958 — February 6, 2019

Lynn Christen passed away Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at her home in Pine City at the age of 60.

Lynn Alison Christen was born October 27, 1958 to Julius and Ella (Anderson) Nagel in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Lynn was a kind generous soul; you could always find her helping her neighbors, and caring for friends. She was a lifelong animal-lover; Lynn raised chickens, lambs, horses, llamas, and pigs at her past hobby farm. She loved spending time on the lake surrounded by close friends and family. To relax, Lynn enjoyed playing Sudukio and solving crossword puzzles. Along with birdwatching, she was constantly out in her yard gardening and methodically taking care of her prized flowers, her red roses. Lynn worked for 20+ years at Fairview Riverside Hospital in Minneapolis. She started as a Respiratory Therapist, but determined to succeed; she went back to school to become a Registered Nurse. Working hard and putting in many hours of overtime, Lynn eventually worked her way to a Nurse-Manager position. She retired early in her career to take care of her family. During her free time, she enjoyed Downhill and Cross Country Skiing, as well as Horseback Riding, and spending time with her children. Lynn was a devoted mother and wife.

Lynn is survived by her husband David; children Andrew Christen, Sophia Christen both of Pine City and John (Stacie) Christen of New Brighton; grandchildren Rowen Christen and Juliette Christen; mother Ella Nagel; brothers Mark Nagel and Brian Nagel all of St. Paul.

Lynn is preceded in death by her father Julius Nagel.
