Cristina Himka served on The Corvallis Advocate editorial staff just over three years ago; she passed away earlier this month, younger than one would hope for. Cristina was an open and driven person, up for study on any subject. The variety of her work exceeded the usual for the time she was with the newspaper.
Cristina talked frequently of family and friends, she loved them and we are certain she is missed among them. We miss her, too.
