Christina L. Temple

Christina Temple, 81, passed away peacefully at the Fitchburg Gardens on the morning of February 5, 2018.

Christina was born on December 31, 1936 and raised in Germany. Daughter of the late Theresia (Sachs) and Joseph Brietenberger of Germany. Christina worked as a chef at Anastos Corner Cafe in Hull, Ma for 50 years, retiring at the young age 74. Her customers were like family at Anastos and she loved seeing smiles on their faces.  Cooking was her passion, but when she was not at the cafe, you could find her working in her garden, planting delicate flowers she loved and vegetables. Christina was a dog lover, and a huge animal lover all together. She was selfless and always put animals before her self. She was a very strong German woman who loved her family, friends and life itself.

She leaves behind her grandson Andrew Thomas and wife Leah, of Fitchburg, MA, granddaughter Angela Keene of Fitchburg, MA,  daughter Joannie Myers and fiance Kevin Kessinger, of Rockland, MA, grandson Ryan Thomas, of Rockland, MA and brother Arnold Brietenberger, of Germany.

Christina will be laid to rest in the alongside her beloved husband George Temple at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne, MA.  Services will be held on Monday, February 26 at 11am at the cemetery for any family and friends who would like to say final goodbyes.
