CHRISTINE HELEN COLTART
"You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived."
Christine was born in Carberry, Manitoba, on August 2, 1925, daughter of Thomas and Ella Coltart; sister to John (predeceased).
Christine's education took her from country school in Melbourne, to high school in Carberry, to Brandon University. Her lifelong career was seed analyst at Agriculture Canada in Winnipeg. Here, she formed long lasting friendships, which were maintained over her lifetime by monthly "seedy" lunches. She was proud to have been retired longer than she had worked and enjoyed every minute.
As a resident of Osborne Village for 70 years, she witnessed many changes as the Village evolved. Christine was a vibrant member of Augustine United Church for over 70 years, welcoming new faces and making all feel at home.
Family and friends were so important to Christine, in glad and sad times and brought her support and much joy. Her Christmas card list was extensive and spanned the globe.
Left to hold her memory dear are myriad friends and circles of cousins. Grateful thanks to Christine's home care team who were so supportive in her final days.
Memorial donations may be made to Augustine Centre, 444 River Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3C 0C7.
Due to Covid 19, Christine's family will celebrate her life privately. Interment will take place at the family plot in Carberry, MB.

Christine was a long time friend of our Mom and our family when we at Augustine Church. She was a wonderful, bright woman who always extended herself to others and our mother appreciated the value of her friendship greatly. We're so sad to hear of her passing and would like to pass along our condolences to her family. We're grateful for knowing her - Posted by: Perry McGregor (Family friends) on: Oct 10, 2021
Christine was a long time friend of the Korda family. We came to know her through Mona's sister and our aunt, Joyce Brown. Their friendship started at the seed lab in Winnipeg and soon she felt like part of the family. As children we remember Christine sharing many Sunday dinners around the dining room table on Moorgate Street, celebrating birthdays with picnics in Assiniboine Park and even venturing out on summer holidays to White Lake. She was a remarkable woman and a wonderful friend. Our lives are richer having known Christine. Mona, Nancy, Robert, David and Maureen Korda - Posted by: The Korda Family (Friends) on: Oct 04, 2021
