Life Story / Obituary


Christen Marie (Kage) Quintero, 34 of Traverse City, passed this world March 13, 2019 to join our Lord and Savior in the Kingdom of Heaven.

She was born and raised in Traverse City and attended Traverse City High School.

Christen was the beloved wife of Edwin Quintero, and the loving mother of Nakiah, Skylar and Jaxton. She enjoyed being a stay at home mother raising her three children, and being a wife and nurse to her husband, who is a wounded Veteran. Christen and her family had lived in California and Puerto Rico while Edwin was serving in the military.

Christen will be remembered for being a very spiritual person with a strong Christian faith.

She was always a very generous and giving person. She loved to find just the right gift for others. She always took care that her mother had whatever she needed. Christen loved reading and listening to her 800 audio books, cooking, baking cookies and muffins, and shopping online. She loved her jewelry and beauty products. She had a quirky sense of humor that we will all miss.
