It is with great sadness that I offer my condolences to Christine’s family. She was without a doubt, one of the nicest, sweetest people you could ever meet. She had strong love and devotion to her family, her friends and to the Blacksmith Shop Museum which was easy to see whenever she mentioned them. I had many chats with Christine over the years and enjoyed hearing about her family, her family history and her travels. They will always be special memories to me. My thoughts are with the entire family, especially Mike and Mikaela at this very sad time.

So very sorry to hear of your loss. Christine did not know me, but when ever I passed her walking, she always had a lovely smile for me. I will miss that but I will be smiling when I think of her.
She will be in a place where everyone will be smiling when they see her again. May God bless!

Condolence from Valerie Inness on December 17th, 2012 3:56 pm

Dear Family:
I am so sorry to hear of Christine’s passing. I shall always remember her greeting to me ” Bonjour Valerie ” for a second I thought I could speak french, so answered back “Bonjour Christine”. She would say another sentence, then I realized I can’t speak french, but she sure could. I will miss running into her and her wonderful happiness she spread around. No more suffering and no more pain she is safe in Heaven.

Valerie one of Christine’s Friends

Condolence from Brenda, Jeff, Katie and Joel Foley on December 17th, 2012 3:57 pm

Dear Mike, Mikka and family,

Words cannot express the extreme sorrow we feel at this time. Christine was a lovely woman, mother and wife who will be missed dearly by all those who knew her. Her sense of humor even during her illness and willingness to not go without a fight, only proves the strength that was in her. Her time came way too soon as she had so much to live for and so many more important milestones in her life to accomplish. To Mikka, know that we love you dearly as if you were are own and we will always be there for you. We are always only a phone call or text away, but I know you know that. Love always and forever.

Brenda, Katie, Jeff and Joel

Love from Pamela, Neil, Adrian and Rob Mutsaers

Dear Mikaela and Family;

Although we did not know your Mom or for that matter your Dad either very well, it is quite apparent that both of them were and are wonderful parents and people. Take faith in knowing that your Mom’s goodness will live on in the values and love she instilled in you and those she touched in life. You will see her again in heaven. She is now an angel watching over you saying, “Have fun but study hard and be good.”
We will pray for your family.

Love, Mr. & Mrs. Mac Isaac

Condolence from Paul Collins on December 19th, 2012 6:34 am

It was with great sadness that I read in today’s paper of Christine’s passing. While I knew her mostly on a professional basis when I employed by the NS Museum, we also had times when we just talked and got to know each other. Christine was the consummate museum curator and it was always a pleasure to visit the Blacksmith Shop. The community of Milton and the museum community were very fortunate to have her work on their behalf.

Condolence from Donna & Bucky Norman on December 19th, 2012 11:04 am

Memories keep the one you loved close to you in spirit and thought
and always in your heart,today and forever.

Thinking of you with sympathy.

And Mikka , darling … if you ever need a shoulder to cry on , I’m only a shout away.
Love from,
April, Mike, Zack and Zoey Whynot

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Christine. She was a quiet and exceptionally nice person and fellow student who helped me a lot when I was trying to learn English in Grades 5, 6 and 7 in Port-Cartier. I tried for a while to get a hold of some fellow classmates of those days and only located Madeline. I wish I could have talked to Chistine myself. We had not met or spoken since grade 7. All of a sudden I get this terrible news on facebook. My thoughts and prayers are with Christine,family and friends. Please accept my most sincere condolences. Guy Chenel
