Douglas, Christina Nancie
1931 – 2007
Born and raised in Toronto, Christina attended Riverdale Collegiate, and spent her career as a business manager in the fields of financial and medical services. In early 2002 she and her husband purchased a home in Courtenay, and retired here. Christina loved life in the Valley, and was an active participant in the Newcomers Society, and social and sports activities. She quickly got a large circle of wonderful friends.
In spite of carrying the burden of trigeminal neuralgia for many years, Christina always had a sunny and cheerful disposition, with an uncanny talent for gentle persuasion and always had a positive influence on her surroundings. She was a lady with brains, charm, personality, total integrity, humour and tolerance, and yet possessed a resource of serious determination.
-“a price far above rubies” – Prov. 31
Christina was felled by a sudden stroke, with massive brain hemorrhage on January 3rd, and passed away peacefully on January 8th, in the neurological intensive care unit of the Vancouver General Hospital. She is mourned by her many good friends and her surviving husband, Martin Jeppesen.
According to Christina’s wishes she is to be cremated, and a celebration and memorial of her life will be held at a future announced time.
