Cristobalina Garay Harvey, age 75, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 20, 2024, in Englewood CO. She was born in the Guaymi (Ngobe-Bugle) tribe on October 12, 1948, in Chiriqui Panama, and adopted by Enrique Archibold and Delmira Melva Hecker De Archibold.

Christina grew up in Chiriqui, Colon, and Panama City where she then met Michael Harvey who was stationed at the Ft. Gulick US Army base in the Panama Canal Zone. The two married in 1970 and moved to the United States in 1971.

Christina spent most of her life in Colorado and loved to travel. She was able to visit Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Nevada, Texas, and Washington, and even was able to visit her homeland Panama.

Christina was preceded in death by her parents, Enrique and Delmira; her ex-husband, Mike; her granddaughter, Cassandra; and her 4 little companions, Spike, Coco, Precious (the 3-legged dog), and Missy.
