  • 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.
    Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at 11:00 am at the Wilford Stake Center, 3080 So. Kenwood Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84106.

    Christina was a wonderful person! She reached out to me at Utah Voices and showed me love. It was wonderful to know that if I wasn't at rehearsal, she would miss me. At rehearsals, Utah Voices would ask for members to be quiet in between singing-Christina just couldn't. She almost always had something to say. It might be funny or a little sassy, a question or comment about the beautiful music we were singing. She showed love to those around her but also for her departed husband. I will miss her but I'm happy that she is with her dear husband.

    I sang with Christina and her dear husband, John, for many years with the Utah Symphony Chorus and loved them both dearly! Singing with Christina again with Utah Voices was a joyful thing for me. Her warmth and her smile touched me deeply in many ways! I'm so sorry she has left all of us! We will all miss her so much! Warmest wishes off comfort to all of you. Norma Sonntag

    I cannot begin to convey my feelings of sadness. I loved Christina and will miss her terribly. We have known each other and sung together for more than thirty years. In Utah symphony chorus and recently Utah Voices. She and John will forever be in my heart. I’m so happy they are back together, but I will miss her hugs and cheerful laughter. The world was a better place with her around.. I send my heartfelt sympathy to all who knew and loved her. She will never be forgotten!!! Joan Jensen Bowles

    I knew Christine pretty well and was shocked to see her obituary here. Howard was a friend of my brother and Chris and I shared a love of singing...we both sang in Pro Musica. I am so sorry for your loss. It’s so hard to see so many friends starting to pass away these days. May you find comfort in your knowledge of her love for you all. Holly Williams Schelin

    We are so sorry to hear of your great loss, but your father’ now is reunited with his sweetheart. Beautifully written about your mother, who we all adored and who always made everyone feel special. Christina oozed with talents and gifts, now blessing others. Isn’t it wonderful and conforming to know “this same sociality that exists among us here, will exist among us there!” Until we meet again. We all love Christina. 💕

    Oh Christina, how strange it is to see you here. Even though I was there when you passed, it seems not quite real. I hope you are celebrating with John and everyone, and singing with the angels, free of this physical world. I already miss you! Love you, San <3

    I was sorry to hear of Christine’s passing. I sang with her in Utah Voices and enjoyed getting to know her. Much love and condolences to her family.
