Christa was born in Auburn on July 11, 1985 to Paul and Carolyn (Mansell) Rose. She graduated from Lakewood Park Christian School in 2003.
She married Shaka Dhladhla on October 24, 2010 at the Bible Believers Baptist Church in Churubusco, Indiana. He resides in Fort Wayne.
Christa was a very active member of the County Line Church of God in Auburn where she was involved in many groups and served as a worship leader on Sundays. She often used her beautiful singing voice and her gift of playing the piano and other musical instruments at church, weddings and other events.
Christa has worked as a wellness advocate for doTERRA International for the last 5 years. She was all about helping others in their own lives by making them feel included and helping them feel better about themselves. She enjoyed volunteering, ministering and spending time with those in need. She volunteered at halfway homes and was involved with Celebrate Recovery at the church. She was always trying to make a difference and bring joy to people’s lives. She was a wonderful wife, daughter, sister and friend. Most of all she loved being a mom to her daughter.
