Chris was born to Stephen and Roberta Crosby and raised in Verona. A graduate of Verona High School and the Berkeley Secretarial School, she later lived in Roseland for many years until residing in Caldwell for the past 20 years. She was a paralegal with Brach Eichler LLC in Roseland for the past 34 years.
Chris was the beloved wife of the late Michael Perrella; loving mother of Stephen Perrella (Lindsey), cherished stepmother of Michael Perrella (Ingrid), Kim Perrella, and the late Anthony Perrella; and the proud grandmother of Michael, Penelope, Anthony and Alyssa. She is also survived by her loving, longtime companion, Richard Brown, her sisters, Pam Figurelli (Bob) and Roberta Shaw (Bob); and her daughter-in-law, Jeneen Perrella, several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and her lifelong friends.
Chris was a loyal and caring person and her laughter always filled the room. Nothing was more important to her than her family and friends. She most especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren.
