Christine, who I have known as Ida, was a member of the Order and was loved by all. She was always welcoming to her and Sonny’s home, no matter the circumstances. I will always remember her smile and her kind heart. I know you are going to a better place. Peace and God’s blessings. Farewell my Sister.

Saddened to hear about Christine's passing. I grew up on Hazelglen next door to Christine and Peter until I was about 10. I have so many fond memories of this beautiful soul that have stuck with me all these years later. We ran into them several years back and I couldn't believe how she remembered me. Sending love to Christine's family. ❤

My sincere condolences to Uncle Sonny, Ken Marjorie and all the family. I pray that God will give you all the strength during this difficult time. I will never forget the love and kindness you both showed me when I arrived in Kitchener as a young 16 year old girl.
Remember, when your strength weakens always remember that God will hold you up and never let you down. May God bless and keep you all. Love always,

Ida ( Christine ) I will always remember Ida for many reasons. One of, she was the third person that my wife, Viola, and I met when we came to Canada in the Spring of 1976. She and her husband, Sonny, were neighbors and on a warm Sunday evening whilst walking in the neighborhood of Victoria Hills we met and spoke. She greeted us with her infectious smile and welcomed us to the neighborhood, province and Canada. We're assured of her welcome in the presence of The Lord by His Spirit " absent from the body:present with The Lord God " Rest in peace. Winston/Venetta.
