Christine Lawrence, 83, was born on Nov. 29th, 1935, in Valdez, Colo. and went to her Heavenly Home on September 4th, 2019. She is survived by her husband of 60 years and eleven months, Larry; her children, Dan (Allison) and Karen (Phil); grandchildren, Rachel, Alex (Alyssa), Isaac, Phillip and Victoria; and sisters-in-law, Estie Lawrence and Kay Wilks, as well as numerous beloved nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jacob and Karen Olson; siblings, Oscar, Jenny (Cowan) and Albert; in-laws, Daniel and Mildred Lawrence; brothers-in-law, Dan Lawrence and Tom Lindblom; and sisters-in-law, Sarah Lawrence and Alice Murrie Lindblom. Christine's family was her greatest love and she cared for them all as the ultimate homemaker, an expert in her garden and kitchen. She was avid cook and baker, especially bread, rolls and pies. Christine and Larry cultivated, fruit and vegetable gardens, from which she would freeze, can and make jams and jellies. She had a true love of music and loved to sing; she sang in the Pueblo Choral and church choirs. Christine loved and appreciated art, could draw and was a china painter. Her heart really was with children, teaching confirmation and Sunday School classes and the 'little ones.' She taught pre-1st, 1st and 2nd grade at School District #60 (Minnequa, Spann and Bradford). She earned her master's degree from Lesley College, was in the teachers' sorority Delta Kappa Gamma. Our heartfelt thanks goes to the staffs of Heatherwood Village and New Century Hospice for their loving care. A celebration of her life will be held, 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019, at First Church of the Nazarene, 84 Stanford. Memorials may be sent to The Alzheimer's Association, 4104 Outlook Blvd. Bldg.
