On Sunday evening, June 23, surrounded by the love of her closest family and friends, Princess Christina went gently into the good night.

She will be forever remembered for her loving and light-hearted spirit, sparkling humor, tremendous generosity, and over-riding passion for life.

As a 10-year resident of San Juan Island, she served as a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent for the Department of Homeland Security until 2007.

She is survived by her brother, Stephen Shubert, her sister Donna Nelson and her trusty and loyal service dog, Rocco.

Donations may be made to: Hospice Northwest, P.O. Box 1376, Mount Vernon, WA 98273 or to Pulmonary Hypertension Association, 801 Roeder Road, Suite 1000, Silver Spring, MD 20910
