Christine Chimenti, age 50, died peacefully on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, surrounded by her loving family. Christine was born in New York, NY and grew up in Paramus, NJ.
She graduated from Paramus High School in 1984, and received a BS in Nursing from Seton Hall University in 1988. She also received a juris doctorate from The City University of NY Law School in 1997 and was a member of the NJ Bar Association. Christine and her husband of 15 years, Salvatore Vona, lived in Hoboken before moving to Wyckoff, NJ in 2012 to raise their two children.

We will always love our beautiful wife, mom, daughter, sister, and aunt and will cherish all of the unforgettable memories. We will never forget her beautiful smile and positive outlook on life, all that we learned from her and will be forever grateful for her perseverance and endless love.
