Christina A. Fale

Christina Ann (Hammond) Fale 37, of East Providence passed away at home on January 14, 2016 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Chrissy was the wife of Shane Fale of East Providence. She was born in Covington, Kentucky on June 9, 1978 the daughter of the late Elizabeth (Casey) Hammond-Leighton of Providence and the late James Hammond of Kentucky. Chrissy grew up in Providence and lived in Florida, Massachussets, Texas, and Washington before moving back to Rhode Island. Chrissy is survived by her husband Shane; her sister, Jeanna Aquilante and her husband Ronald Aquilante of Cranston and their four children; her brother, James Hils and his wife Jamie Hils of Kentucky and their four children; many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins; her late mother Betty's husband, Michael Leighton, of Johnston, and his family; and many friends. She leaves three "fur-babies",Leia,Brady, and Bella,at home. Throughout her life, Chrissy loved to work with children, both in daycare and as a nanny to several families. She also spent time working with ReFocus, an assisted living facility for adults with differing abilities. She was planning to pursue a degree in Special Education. Diagnosed with endometrial adenosarcoma in the autumn of 2010 while living in Washington, Chrissy was given 5 months to live. She had other plans, and a lot of living to do. She researched her type of cancer tirelessly, as well as available treatments, often surprising her doctors with her insights and suggestions for her treatment. She supported others going through similar battles and made friends through support groups, in waiting rooms, and even while receiving chemo herself. She and Shane moved home to be closer to her family, and Chrissy continued to fight. The cancer returned twice more, the last time in January of 2015, when she was given 7 months to live. Chrissy didn't give up then either and happily celebrated Christmas and New Year's surrounded by family and friends. Calling Hours will be held at Butterfiled Home and Chapel 500 Pontiac Ave Cranston, RI on Monday January 18, 2016 from 4pm to 8pm. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Mary's Church 1525 Cranston St Cranston, RI on Tuesday January 19, 2016 at 11 am.
