May 22, 1952 – June 18, 2020
On June 18th, 2020, Christine Mayhew peacefully passed away at her home in Kingwood, Texas after a two-year battle with Ovarian Cancer.
It would be wrong to say that Christine lost her battle with cancer because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she had a smile, a big hug and her amazing laugh ready for anyone she met. Christine was one of those rare folks that could literally light up a room. She could walk into a room of a hundred strangers and by the end of the night have a hundred new friends. She was gracious and kind to everyone. You couldn’t tell if she was talking to the CEO or the custodian, which was one of her many gifts.
Christine will be forever remembered by her husband David, their two sons Scott and Jeffrey, their spouses Paige and Nicole, grandchildren Cole, Piper and McCoy, sisters Becky, Gwen, and Tassy, and younger brother Buck.
A celebration of Christine’s life will be held in Kingwood, TX at a later date.

I have known Christine ever since she was 18 years old. We were in the same rush class for Pi Beta Phi and we became best friends immediately. In those days everyone called me “Ogie” and Chris never stopped calling me that. We lived together our Sophomore , Junior , and Senior years at Ball State and had way too much fun. Ordering pizzas and Dr. Pepper from Pizza King, going to New York and seeing the Rockettes, coming to surprise me for my birthday at my home and bringing a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake, going to Teibel’s Restaurant with my parents, bringing Scott and Jeffrey to Indy to meet my girls, and visiting be almost every year when she came to see her parents in Indy. Those times I will always cherish and will remember her for her contagious smile and for always being there. She will be remembered with love and joy.

Our prayers are with the family at this very difficult time. We have great memories of our boys playing football together at Rice! Even more wonderful are their lifetime friendships they formed and the families we became friends with! We will treasure these memories of the games, the weddings and sharing pictures of the grands as Christine will continue to live in these sweet memories and her grands!

Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home years ago. It's not easy to feed a collegiate offensive line!!! You insisted we call you "Mom" instead of Mrs. Mayhew and you treated us like Jeff and Scott. The memories from those steak dinners will stay with me forever. Your smiling face and encouraging words after wins (or losses) became something I would look for amid the sea of family and friends. Rest well Mom. You will be missed.
One of your boys....

We are heart-broken at the loss of Christine, and can’t imagine the pain Dave and the family are experiencing. She is our loss and God’s gain. We regret that we only had the last couple of years to know Christine and enjoy times together. Within seconds of meeting her, we loved her. She had a very inviting smile and made you feel like the most important person in the world. We will never, never forget her.
