Barbara Ann Christen,  79, of Eveleth, passed away peacefully on December 26, 2020 in the comfort of her home.  She was born on June 20, 1941 to Eleanor and John Rozinka. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Paul Christen and her two brothers; Jerry and Charles. Barb enjoyed traveling with Paul and Cathy. She enjoyed spending her time at the cabin on Lake Vermilion, creating delicious meals for her family, gardening, reading, and most of all, spending her days with her terrier, Sophie. She was a caring mother, wife, nana, great-grandmother and friend. Her independence and strong willed personality set her apart from many.  She is survived by her two children, Catherine (Tom) Lamberta and Steven Christen. Her 3 grandchildren Alexandria (Kyle) Davies, Sammi, Dominic, Great Grandson Leland Paul Davies and many friends.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date with close family and friends.
