We’re sad to share the news that Christina Ricci, a young mental health worker at NH Hospital, has passed away. Christina, an SEA/SEIU Local 1984 member in Chapter 4, was injured in a fall while on vacation and later suffered a massive stroke. She died last Wednesday in Miami at age 24. Her co-workers have told us that Christina was an especially bright light, who touched everyone she came in contact with. She will be deeply missed.
There will be calling hours on Friday from 5-8 p.m. at the Petit Funeral Home, 167 Main St., in Pembroke. The Mass of Christian Burial will be Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at St. John the Baptist Church in Allenstown.
In lieu of flowers, her family has asked for memorial donations to be made in Christina’s name to the American Heart Association, 2 Wall St., Manchester NH 03101. You can also make a donation to the family via Go Fund Me; we’re told that many family members traveled to Florida to be with Christina and they are also faced with the costs of transporting her back to NH and funeral services.
