Chris has been a community activist for over 30 years and has dedicated herself to community service, volunteering her time, energy and resources to making sure that Los Angeles, Hollywood in particular, has maintained and improved over the many years for it to be the amazing place it is today. She has played a major part in history, including: being one of the founder members of the Hollywood Studio District Neighborhood Council (HSDNC), President and participant of the Hollywood Democratic Club for over 15 years, honored as Woman of the Year in State of California AND Hollywood/Los Angeles by prominent politicians, honored as "People of the Year" by LA Weekly twice, and many other awards, too many to mention at this moment.

We know she is in G-d's loving hands and that she is being taken care of right now. Please help us pray for her and our family's peace and serenity. Thank you so much for being an important person in my mother's life and our family's life.

With much love and warm blessings,
Jacquie Shabel (Daughter)
Rhys Shabel (Grandson)
Patricia Shabel (Daughter)
