Christine enjoyed talking and meeting new people. You could count on her asking you at least 20 questions to get to know you better. Christine loved her family, church family and helping whenever needed. Christine worked and retired from Western Electric with over 25 years of service. Her compassion and laughter will never be forgotten.
Christine accepted Christ and was baptized (Greene Lake) at First Baptist Church in Holly Grove, Arkansas by her grandfather the late Rev. William H. Hardaway. Christine moved to Kansas City, MO in the late 1960’s. In the early 1970’s she started attending church with her sister-in-law Irene and then shortly thereafter united with Metropolitan MB Church under the leadership of Wallace S. Hartsfield, Sr. and continued to serve under the leadership of Wallace S. Hartsfield, II. Christine remained a faithful member until her health started to decline.
