Christine WINDLE

WINDLE, Christine April 15, 1928 – Oct. 11, 2007 It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of our wife, mother, sister, and grandmother Christine Windle (nee Hawrylenko), beloved wife of Patrick for 55 years, after a brief illness. Patrick's "Little Pail of Honey" is now at rest with the good Lord. Mom will always be fondly remembered for her courage and wisdom throughout the years and the many wonderful aromas coming from her kitchen. Predeceased by her parents Fred and Mary; six sisters, Pearl, Anne, Mary, Rose, Sophie, and Pauline; six brothers, John, Mike, Harry, Pete, Nick, and Bill; four brothers and sisters who died in infancy and one brother-in-law, Jack (Gena). Grandma is now able to join hands with her first grandson Justin who left us all too early in 1987. She can now give him guidance like she has done so beautifully to her other remaining grandsons, Sean, Kyle, Devin, Tyson, Patrick, and Jonathan, who will be honourary bearers. Mom enjoyed gardening, camping, traveling, and wintering in warm locations. Mom loved to go on cruises and special memories will be celebrated on the family cruise through the Panama Canal this December in honour of their 55th anniversary. Chris was born in Peno, AB and leaves behind her loving husband Paddy; sons, Michael (Suzann) of Calgary, Tim (Christine) of Delta, BC and Danny (Sheree) of Chestermere; sisters, Olga of Prince George, Lena of Kamloops, Ksenia (Chick) of Chilliwack, and Katrina (Kathy) of Hythe and numerous relatives and friends. The Windle family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the staff at the Peter Lougheed Hospital. Special thanks goes to Dr. Stassen who made sure Mom was cared for with golden hands and nurses Hanna, Nicole, Maureen, and Dubhe will also be remembered. At the request of Christine, there will be a private family service and interment in Red Deer.
