Bill I am so sad that you have lost Chris,
As you know I had known her all my life. We grew up together on Woolwich in Guelph. Chris was a special friend we shared our secrets and jumped in puddles together.Over the years we were in and out of each others lives. She went West and I went North. She was the friend that offered me shelter when I left home for the first time. She was family to me. Chris and I worked at Al's pizza together in Guelph thats where Bill worked too, the nicest, kindest, smartest and strongest guy you could meet. Chris fell in love almost immediately. We had lots of laughs and tears over the years. Chris was a old soul she had such maturity about her when just a kid. Her strength was unmatched. She was meticulous, loved clean tidy environments. Always looked like a rock star such attention to details and YES loved her furry companions!.
Sadly I only found this obituary while trying to locate her whereabouts ( I am not on facebook). At this point in my life I too am 62 and never dreamed this is how I would find my childhood diva.. my heart aches for you Bill and for me. A loss that will stay with me forever!! See you one day dear friend. Tons of love to you Bill and your family... you are a better person and were privileged to have her in yiur life, but you know that! Susan xx

Bill and family, I worked with Christine at LMH and always had a bubbly outlook and then a few years ago I found out you lived across the road from my niece in Holstein at her wedding at the farm. My thoughts are with you and your family at this time. Paula Ghent

Bill & Family Gail and I were so very sorry to hear of Chris’s passing. Please accept our Deepest Sympathies! Wayne & Gail Tonkin

My most sincere condolences for your painful loss. Death is without a doubt a very cruel enemy that attacks us all equally. I imagine Mrs. Christine was a person very loved and respected by her family, who must be deeply saddened by her death, but the Bible gives us a message of comfort. In Isaiah 25: 8 it says: “He will remove death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe the tears from all faces. He will remove from all the earth the dishonor of his people, because Jehovah himself has said so.” How beautiful will be the day when death will be resurrected and we can see again our loved ones who have passed away. Have a nice day and that the family does not know of sorrows.
