Christine passed peacefully in Edmonton on March 10, 2021 at the age of 42. She was born on April 6, 1978 in Rocky Mountain House, AB where she grew up on an acreage West of town. The family moved to St. Paul in 1986 and then to Camrose in 1987 to be closer to family, where she spent the remainder of her childhood and teenage years. After graduation in Camrose, Christine went on to Grant McEwan College where she later graduated from Travel and Tourism. After Graduation, she worked for New West Travel in Edmonton for many years and lived in Sherwood Park, where they had made their family of four. She later went on her own and started a successful travel business. After she was divorced, she moved to Edmonton.

Christine was predeceased by her grandparents Alex and Olive Halbert and Joe and Mary Black; and her uncle and aunt, Dale and Virginia Taylor.
Christine had a passion for many things in life including family and friends, travel, and camping to list a few. Christine was a once-in-a-lifetime friend with a zest for life, an infectious smile and a laugh that would echo through your heart. She cared about everyone and always made sure that everyone else was always taken care of first. Her biggest accomplishments in life were her two children Ava and Aaron, who made her so proud each day. Christine will be dearly missed by all who knew her and had a chance to spend time with her.
She will be forever in our hearts and always by our side.
