Christine was born in Syracuse NY, married Gene, moved to Rochester, raised 3 kids and volunteered and worked for the Rochester City School District. She then went to school to become a dental hygienist. She always wanted to live on a lake and she and Gene lived on Conesus Lake for 34 years. She was very talented at knitting and crochet. She enjoyed golf and was very proud of her hole in one and her Champion of Champions win at Old Hickory Golf Course. She was a volunteer in the Democratic Party and an avid NY Yankee and Syracuse Orange fan. She loved to dress to sparkle and shine and always made a friend wherever she went. She loved traveling for birdwatching, historical sites and especially to visit her daughter and granddaughters in Oregon. Her family was her pride and joy.
