Touching Mother’s Day story on UtahUtes.com mourns the passing of a matriarch.

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah softball players Claire and Mary Beth Feldman lost their mother, Christine, in January of 2019. The 49-year-old was the matriarch of a family that includes their father, Greg, and sister Olivia.

In a touching Mother’s Day tribute on UtahUtes.com, the student-athletes from Florida reflected on her passing and the impact she made on their lives.

“I would like to tell her thank you. Thank you for her sacrifices that she had made for us,” Mary Beth said. “I would thank her for the years she devoted to my sisters and I in order for us to be successful in school, sports and in life. I would tell her how much she means to me and how much I love her.

Claire had similar thoughts.

“I would want to tell her how much I love her. I would tell her how much everyone who was lucky enough to know her misses her. I would thank her for the family that she built and for the way she sacrificed everything for us without hesitation,” she said. “The way she put others before herself was unmatched. Thank you for being the perfect role model, most understanding friend, and most incredible mom.”
