In Memorial

With the Sisterhood, she worked primarily on providing educational opportunities for female students. Christine also loved the opportunities that came to her through church service. For thirty years she was the wife of a minister and took on all the responsibilities that came with that. She was a dedicated servant as she happily took on such jobs as church organist, singer and children

Your mother was a very special woman and a very dear friend to me and my family. While I will miss her very much, I am so glad that she is at peace and in Heaven. Please let us know what we can do to help you during this time of loss.
You were such a caring and devoted daughter for so many years. I appreciate the many acts of kindness that I know you performed on your mother’s behalf.

May God grant you peace in this loss.

What a lovely person Christine was. She so appreciated visits. She truly knew the art of conversation. I am richer for knowing her.

Few women have been held in as high esteem as Chris was for many years. No woman deserved it more. I share with others this sad loss.

A beautiful light has gone out. Chris was thinking of others and serving as long as she was able. A wonderful Christian lady.

Chris was one of the most caring, loving, forgiving and “grace-filled” people I know. We kept the nursery at Pilgrim Church once a month for many years. During these times we had many conversations about many topics. She always had the ability to look beyond faults and see need. She was a true model for Christian living.

Condolence from David Dean on January 4th, 2008 12:00 am

When we came to Durham in the late 80s Chris was one of the warmest people we met at Pilgrim. A quiet, kindly spirit, she had a smile that was infectious. Her memory will not soon fade. God bless all whom she loved and all who loved her. May she rest in peace with her Lord.

Condolence from June and Steve Quarfordt on January 5th, 2008 12:00 am

Although we have not seen Chris in many years the fact that she was still living and serving in Durham was a comfort to us. We have vivid memories of carolling in her warm and wonderful living room out there in the woods! We will miss her. June and Steve

Chris and I worked together in Head Start many, many years ago. Chris was always a delight to be around and an inspiration to everyone who knew her. I am honored to have known Chris.

Ann, I hope your memories comfort you. Earth’s loss is heaven’s gain.

Condolence from Margot and Mark Pickett on January 7th, 2008 12:00 am

Dear Ann,

We are indeed saddened to hear of Chris’ death, and remember her with great fondness and gratitude for her gentle, loving, sweet spirit. The world is a poorer place without her presence here. We are sorry that we cannot be at her memorial service on Saturday, but you all will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Margot and Mark

Condolence from Edith Wynne Kosa on March 6th, 2008 12:00 am

Chris was my cousin Frank’s wife, and was highly spoken of by my sister Alma. Our condolences on her death; to be absent from the bosy is to be present with the Lord.
