Chris Cameron Kuiper
July 20, 1952 – September 19, 2021

Chris Cameron Kuiper passed away on September 19, 2021 at the age of 69 in her hometown of Blaine. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Chris. She had an uncanny ability to find happiness in her daily activities. Her love of life didn’t come to an end with her death. 

She was a proud alumna of Blaine High School. She devoted nine years of her life to the U.S. Navy and was honored to be a female sailor in her time. After the Navy, she followed her love of Port 3004, and her father’s legacy as U.S. port director, to become a U.S. customs broker in 1988. She served ports across the United States in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, and Texas. Chris was a member of the American Legion Post 86 and loved helping with bingo and making friends every Friday and Saturday night. 

Chris retired in 2019 from WR Zanes in Dallas TX to take her mom home to Blaine to rest together as angels. She is proceeded in death as the only child of Don Cameron and beloved mother Elizabeth. She is survived by her aunt Bonnie and cousins Clayton and Michelle Smith of Ohio. 

Memorial services will be held on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at 2 p.m. at American Legion Post 86, 4580 Legion Dr., Blaine.
