Clifton, Cristyn Danielle age 46 of Montville at rest in Totowa on February 3, 2020. Loving mother of Kaden Clifton. Beloved life partner of James Fairchild. Dear daughter of Richard A. Clifton and Diane Rizzo and the late Lynn C. (nee Ferrara) Sobek (2000). Sister of Jacquelyn Elayn DeVita. Step-mother of Cassidy and Mackenzie Fairchild. Later-in-Life Sister to Maureen and her husband Paul Blanos. Niece of Debra Warren. Cousin of Lisa and Craig Dudas. Cristyn is also survived by numerous other cousins and, of course, many friends. Born in Livingston , she first resided in Union County but lived most of her early years in Mount Olive Township. In 1997, she received her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and she graduated from Seton Hall Law School in 2002. Cristyn was an Attorney with Casha & Casha, LLC, Montville for many years. Prior to that she had served as an Assistant Prosecutor in Baltimore County, MD. She was a member of the NJ, Maryland and Washington DC Bar Associations and she was a parishioner of St. Pius X R.C. Church in Montville. Cristyn was an avid Yankee fan and she enjoyed visiting Key West, FL and watching the sunsets with her family. She loved her Sunday walks with Kaden and Jimmy at Liberty State Park and Sandy Hook and cultivating her Spring and Summer flowers. She really loved watching her son play Hockey with the Falcons, perhaps even more than devouring king crab legs and munching on chocolate, (well maybe not). Cristyn cherished her relationships with other moms, dads and friends from Montville, Cedar Hill, Lazar and the Falcons family which for her were great sources of joy and strength. Her family wishes to acknowledge the generosity and to thank all those that have donated to the GoFundMe page. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a funeral service at the Festa Memorial Funeral Home, 111 Union Blvd., Totowa, on Saturday at 4:30 PM. Cremation is private at the request of the family. Friends may visit Saturday 1:00 - 5:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to MONTVILLE UNICO FOUNDATION FOR THE BENEFIT OF K. CLIFTON, and delivered to Casha & Casha, LLC at 115 Horseneck Road #2, Montville, NJ 07045. These will assist in assuring his opportunities for future success.
