Ridgecrest, CA

Chrystine T. Medina (Garcia) was called home to the lord on February 21, 2024, at the age of 61. She was born on July 10, 1962, in Española, New Mexico. 


Chrystine was most known for her big heart and selflessness. She would do anything for her family and had an extra soft spot for her children and grandchildren. If you look up the word “grandma” she’d be the definition, she was proudest grandma and wasn’t shy of letting everyone know. Even though she didn’t like “gente,” she was sure loved by everyone who met her. 


Chrystine was preceded in death by her father Diego “Willie” Garcia, mother Rosemary Garcia, brothers Genaro Garcia, Julian Garcia and sister Amy Sanchez. 


Chrystine, “Sweet Pea,” is survived by her loving husband Jesus Medina of Ridgecrest, CA, her children, James Medina (Cynthia) of Ridgecrest, CA, Khrystine Martinez (Adam) of Vancouver, WA, Marc Medina (Brianna) of Fort Irwin, CA, Shantai Puga (Luis) of Ridgecrest, CA and her siblings Emmalee Garcia of Ojo Caliente, NM, LeRoy Garcia (Ofelia) of San Diego, CA and Jeannette Garcia (Kemmer) of Ojo Caliente, NM. As well as her twelve grandchildren.
