Whenever I visited my mother-in-law at Pioneer Ridge, Christina was always gracious in spending a few moments chatting with me. She was always proud of her family and a most kind lady. She will be missed by many.

We worked with Henry at DuPont and if you wanted to see the light in his eyes, just mention his beloved Christine. Henry idolized Christine and her failing health caused him many a heartache. May they both rest in peace now and be together in the Heavenly Kingdom. All the DuPont Retirees will sure miss Henry. There was never a dull moment when Henry was around.

From Deborah Norwood...

I was saddened to know Mrs. Christine Johnson passed away. She always greeted me with a smile and a hello while visiting my sister, Marilyn, several doors away. Thinking of her family at this time.
Sincerely, Deborah Norwood
