Christine spent a beautiful life in her hometown of Blanc Sablon, having lived independently for nearly 25 years. She was well known for her sense of humour and bringing laughter to any situation. She always spoke what was on her mind, and always ended with a chuckle. She loved music, family get-togethers and the company of friends. She has left us with many joyous memories that will forever be cherished by all those who had the privilege to meet her. Her strong faith was also evident in her everyday life. As she would always say, “Oh well…. God’s will.”
Funeral service will be held at St. Theresa Church on Tuesday, April 9th at 2 pm.
