Christine Ida Edlund, age 72 of Woodruff, passed over on Sunday, Dec. 15, 2019 at home surrounded by her family. Chris was born to the late Melvin “Bud” and Patricia Allen on June 12, 1947.

Christine grew up in the town of Evansville, before moving to Boulder Junction in 1971, where she owned the Deer Path Bar and Resort on Upper Gresham Lake for seven years.

Recently, they returned to the Northwoods and settled in Woodruff.
