Christine Nunan Obituary

Christine Hargreaves Nunan, age 75, passed away in her home in Littlebrook, Roseburg on January 19th, 2024.  Chris, as she was known, was born in the “other” Oakland (California) in 1948.  She attended the Oakland school system, and then California State University Hayward.  In 1968, she transferred to Humboldt State, Arcata, where she obtained a bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate, and met her future husband, Don.  They married in 1971 and moved to Sebastopol for a short time after graduation.

In 1972, Chris and Don moved to Coquille, Oregon, and in 1973 to Arago, a small village outside of Myrtle Point where they purchased a mobile home and six acres on a small hill, surrounded by the Coquille River flood plain.  It was because of the friendly people in the Arago Valley that they started going to the local community church.  Then came commitments - a son in ‘76, a house built in ‘77, and a daughter in ‘78.  After the children were born and raised to school age, she became a teacher in the Myrtle Point school system (of 6th grade science).  Most people in town knew her as “Mrs. N”, and Don as “Mrs. N’s husband”.

Chris continued to teach and then substitute in Myrtle Point until 2002, when Don retired from the BLM.  They then moved to the new retirement community of Littlebrook near Roseburg; new friends and new opportunities!  Chris attended Lookingglass Community Church and was very committed there.  She also continued to sub in the Roseburg school district, gaining many teacher-friends and influencing many young lives.

Chris is known for many things, but her kind heart is most apparent.  She will be missed by her husband, Don, son, Matt, and daughter, Laura.  Grandchildren Aydan (Matt & Dede) and Makyla and Alyssa (Laura & Brian) will miss their Nana, too.  A Celebration of Life will be held at Lookingglass Church on Saturday, March 2nd, 2024 at 1 PM.
