Winifred Christie

Winifred Christie, 101 years of age, went to heaven on August 31, 2021.

Winifred was born in Green Hill, Barbados on August 24th, 1920 to Jacob and Eldica Phillips. She was married to Colin Christie on May 27, 1943, and her family emigrated to the USA in December 1960. After working many years, she retired from the New York Institute for the Deaf and Mute in 1985.

Our beloved mother was preceded in death by husband Colin, sisters Julia Ellis and Etheline Richards, and brothers Tom and Samuel Phillips. Winifred is survived by daughters Coral Michel and Barbara Murray (Edward Sr.), son Herb Christie (Mary), grand children Edward Murray Jr. (Tricia), Phillipe Michel, Kim Williams,
Jonathan Christie, great-grandchildren Samantha and Aaron Williams and Amaia.

Winifred was a loving mother, grand and great grandmother. She was a wonderful friend, cook, gardener, puzzle solver, avid reader, who will be sorely missed.

Winifred will be interred at Harrisburg Presbyterian Church Cemetery, North Carolina. The cemetery is located at the corner of NC Hwy 49S and Morehead Road in Harrisburg, NC.
