Christina Jo (Ahmann) Nevill
March 4, 1982 – June 13, 2013
Christina Jo Ahmann came into this world on March 4, 1982 and breathed her last breath on earth on June 13, 2013.
She was born to her parents, Doug and Jo Dee Ahmann and grew up in Port Angeles. She attended Jefferson Elementary, Calvary Baptist School, Olympic Christian School, and Port Angeles High School. Her major interests in those years were playing her violin, playing soccer, hunting, fishing, hiking, and skiing. She graduated from PAHS in 2000. Her earliest friends, Mandy (Wood) Penso and Linsey (Tuttle) Fuller remained close her entire life.
Christina moved on to Westmont College. Her 4 years at Westmont were a rich time of spiritual, social, and intellectual growth. She formed beautiful friendships and in the last two years of Westmont became a Resident Assistant and successfully shepherded some amazing women through the rigors and traumas of college life. She graduated with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology in 2004.
Christina moved to Portland, Oregon to study massage therapy and begin her own practice. After being diagnosed with a brain tumor she found a new passion—oncology massage. She did further studies in that field and founded a non-profit, “Consider the Sparrow” to provide free massage therapy for cancer patients.
In 2011, a most amazing man, Doug Nevill, came into her life. Christina moved back to Port Angeles to be near him and they were married in November of the same year. One year later, they welcomed their son, Isaiah Douglas into the world. His contagious joy is a continual reminder of Christina’s joyful spirit.
Christina loved Jesus, she loved people, she loved adventure and she loved her life. Joy and wisdom poured from her and she would willingly share both with anyone that crossed her path. She was an active listener, encourager, and a wise counselor.
To her final day, her greatest passion was worship and prayer with her beloved friends and family. She will be greatly missed but she has left a huge legacy of wisdom, wit, and love. She has taught us how to live with great courage, unshakable faith, unending joy, and immense strength.
She is survived by her husband, Douglas E. Nevill and her son, Isaiah Douglas. She is also survived by her brother, Jesse Ahmann, her parents Doug and Jo Dee Ahmann, and her grandmother, Victoria Ahmann.
She is also survived by her 14 cousins and her adoring aunts and uncles.
Drennan Ford is in charge of arrangements. A memorial service will be held at Independent Bible Church on Friday, June 21st at 1:00 P.M.
Memorial contributions may be made to IBC Women in Ministry where she was a member of the leadership team.
