Christine was born on December 26,1929 in Durham, North Carolina. She graduated from Bethesda High School in 1947. Before retiring, Christine worked at Durham’s Southern High School as the Cafeteria Manager. She met Jack, the love of her life, married in 1949 and the two lived in Durham all their lives. She dearly loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and loved spending as much time with them as possible. Telling memorable stories of each of them when they were growing up always made her smile. She enjoyed cooking and talked about the meals she wished she could still fix for herself and family and how she and the ladies at Southern would do all they could to make the high school food taste better.
No memorial service or funeral is planned. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to Sherron Acres Free Will Baptist Church in Durham.
