|Let the memory of Christine be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Christine Stone, 87, born on November 26, 1924 and passed away on June 9, 2012.
"This is the anniversary of my mother's death. We still think of her and keep her in our hearts and minds. We miss her but know that she is in a better place."
"i remember my aunt chris with warm smiles in my heart. she was a devoted reader, as i am, and we shared our book ideas and treasures many, many times. i remember how happy she was when she achieved one of her big goals....to get all her book in order alphabetically by author, on her shelves. i still intend to follow in her footsteps on that score!"
"I shall never forget seeing Chris in London many years after college and her first words were "You've cut your hair!" I feel fortunate that we could see each other in New York. I miss her.
"On behalf of the Uppal family we wish to offer our sincerest condolences on the loss of your Mother. Mrs. Stone was very close to our family. My late Mother Subhash Uppal used to refer to Mrs. Stone as her sister. We will miss her. May God grant peace to her soul.
Krishan D. Uppal & family."
"Since Anne and I first met in NZ in 1960, Christine was always that kind and ever sparkling sister that became the closest of all our friendships.We said 'good-bye' to Chris the day before she passed on to join her beloved Jim. She was smiling and she knew the path ahead. She was the epitome of motherhood with an intuition and compassion that were limitless.We miss you dearly,Christine."
"Gracious to the end. She was my gift from God. xo"

Christine was a very special person. So many happy memories of her and Uncle Jim. Especially bumping into them unexpectedly at Pompeii in 1974. She will be missed.

"I have known dear Chris since the 70s, first as a regular bridge partner with Anne Wilson and Mary Perusse, and latterly as my client, and we all enjoyed her company. I last saw her in October when she had moved into Billingswood Manor, where she seemed perfectly happy and at home though her sight was failing her. We shall all treasure her memory. Call me at 741-2531 if you wish."
"Our family sends condolences and love to our friend Mary, her family and all of Mrs. Stone's loved ones. I met Mrs. Stone many times walking in our Brooklyn neighborhood. She seemed a gentle and warm person and I also recall mischief and humor. We wish all of Christine's loved ones peace and comfort in her beautiful memory. Lisa Karlin and Jim Kunen"
"We too will miss our Aunt Christine...Michael, Katherine and Caroline Reece remember her so well from the visits we made to London in the 1970's, and the cottage at Farren Lake. Christine was dearly loved by our mother Nina, who was still a teenager when Chris married Jim. She became like an older sister to Nina, and their relationship was extremely special. They are together now again."
"Aunt Chris taught me that growing up didn't mean letting go of joy. I took her to lunch in Little Italy in Ottawa a few years ago and we had a great wide ranging conversation that included dealing with mortality. On a visit in early May she told us what Mary also heard her say - that she was ready to go. We will remember her with love until it is our time to go. Love to her family."
"Christine, a joyous, courageous, stalwart friend of many years... She will be greatly missed. I will always cherish the lunch we had with Chris six weeks ago at Patty's Pub. Her great heart and humour touched us deeply.
With much sympathy to the family,
Mina and Stan King"
"Condolences to your family on the loss of your mom, Mrs. Stone to me. She was always a good chuckle to have come into the store."
"This sad news brought back many pleasant memories from a long time ago. Jim and Christine were friends of my parents and in due course the families became friends. Mary's note on Christine's last visit with her family is heartening reading. My sympathy and good wishes to the family"
"Lou and I offer our condolences on the loss of your mother. Not only was she a beloved resident of Marco Lane but also Lou had a long professional relationship with her brother, Deans Berry which he cherished. It was always a pleasure chatting with her and we enjoyed her warmth and intelligent wit. We shall miss her. Lou and Birgitta MacDonald."
"Our mother, Christine Stone, died on saturday quietly in her sleep. She had had a long and wonderful life and was ready to go. During the previous week, she visited with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and many friends. She finally said, "I'm ready to go, are you OK with that?" We told her we would be OK, but would miss her very much."
Have a suggestion for us?
