Christiane Kirsch

Long time resident of the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area, Christiane passed away March 29th at her home in Naranjito.

Christiane moved here from Germany in 1993. She worked in numerous businesses from grocery store, sport fishing, flower arranging, event planing, and project management to name a few. She had an amazing love for animals; rescuing many dogs and cats to take care of and love. She was a founding  member of PAWS and the organization’s first treasurer.

Christiane loved to Salsa dance and was a wonderful friend to many, always meeting everyone with the most wonderful smile…we will miss her very much.

She is survived by her mother and her brother Gunther who live in Germany.
