Christina Lynne Browning passed away on May 20, 2015, two days after her 50th birthday in Charlotte, NC. Christina was born in Illinois and spent her childhood years in Hyde Park, a neighborhood on the south side of Chicago.

"Tina," the nickname used by her family, went to Smith College, in Northampton, MA. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in History (like her father) she met and married Dave McLaughlin. In 1997, her first daughter, Emily Browning McLaughlin was born. Her second daughter Margaret Ann Browning McLaughlin was born in 2001. In 2002, her life long quest to be warm and near her family brought Christina and her family to Charlotte where she lived until her recent death.

As a Sr. VP of Bank of America, Christina excelled (as she did in everything) and moved quickly up the ranks. Christina loved her family: her daughters, Maggie and Emily and her parents Peter and Kathy Browning, Carole Shegog and Richard Pardo. As the oldest in the family, she always remembered and told the best stories about her brother Peter and sisters Kim and Jenny. She readily welcomed and loved her sister-in-law Meike Browning and brother-in-law John Livingston. All loved her dearly and ache terribly in her absence.

As a struggling alcoholic, Christina both relied on and helped many people in the recovery community. She was always giving of her time and was lovingly candid with an incredible smile that brought a bright light to many people. The great irony is that she was unable to help herself. Christina would not want her family to hide her struggle with this awful disease. Instead she would want us to celebrate her giving and loving personality and would want broader recognition and acceptance of addiction as a serious disease.
