On Tuesday, January 26, 2021, Christine Karen Crispino passed away peacefully in her home after a hard-fought, three-year battle. She was born on January 30, 1969 in Jersey City, New Jersey, to Ernest Russelli and Karen Menendez. She grew up in Bronx, New York, where she made lifelong friendships. She married the love of her life, Louis Crispino, on July 29, 2011 and moved to Key Largo, Florida where she had a beautiful life with her loving husband and dogs. As a teacher in the Monroe County School District, she was a large part of the Key Largo Community and was loved by her students and parents alike for her caring and nurturing nature. She was a warm and loving soul with a generous heart and zest for life. Her warm and giving spirit was felt by all including her family who adore her including her sisters, Stefanie O’Donnell and Deborah Russelli, as well as her nieces and nephew. She will truly be missed. God rest her soul.
