Christina Manwaring Huish, 70, passed away on March 29, 2021 in Salt Lake City. She was born on July 12, 1950 to Karl H and Carma Rae Davis Manwaring in Salt Lake City. She married John Wayne Huish on October 17, 1974.

Christina had a lifetime passion for singing and had the most amazing soprano voice. She sang for the University of Utah Acapella Choir, Pro Musica, Utah Symphony Choir, Sterling Singers and Utah Voices, where she made many lifetime friends. She enjoyed other hobbies such as camping, reading, sewing, gardening, history and geography. The kid in her was always looking for that “E Ticket” ride as her favorite place was Disneyland. In her efforts to emulate Christ, who she had a deep love for, she would always go out of her way to make people feel welcome and special and always forgave because she had an enormous heart and she lit up every room she walked in to. She will be tremendously missed by everyone who’s life she has touched; however, she is now reunited with her loving husband and all those who preceded her in death and has began her new journey, freed from the worries of the physical world.

Christina is survived by her daughters, Madeleine Rose Huish and Julia Christina Huish; son, Jacob John Huish; siblings Patricia Wood, Deanne Manwaring, Sandra Manwaring, Paul Manwaring, Kit Manwaring and Marisa Manwaring. She is preceded in death by her husband, John Wayne Huish; father, Karl H Manwaring; mother, Carma Rae Black and her brother Howard K Manwaring.
