Christine Elizabeth Greenwood

  • Born: 31 March 1953
  • Died: 15 November 2020

Beloved mother, wife and friend

Chris was an amazing woman. Mother to three children (or 6 if you include the cats which she definitely would have!) and wife to Philip Greenwood. Wonderfully creative there was no cake design too challenging for her and her cakes became the talk of the village- she could very easily have turned this into a business if she had wanted. Her sewing skills are also unsurpassed in the knitting she did when younger and in later years all the fancy dress outfits she managed to concoct often staying up until late to finish them. She was a loving, kind hearted woman, always there to lend a hand for anybody, but also not afraid to let you know what was on her mind should the need arise! Fiercely loyal and protective of her family her home was her joy and she took great pride in providing a happy environment for her family to grow up in- also ensuring tea was on the table and that we were all well taken care of. Even in the community she is well known, often stopping to talk to people on her way to the corner shop and her work with the church (especially in helping with the school registers) was invaluable. Sadly the last few years have been very tough for her, especially the last 12 months, and it was one battle after another as her health declined but she went peacefully on her own terms which is the best we could have asked for as now she is no longer suffering. She will be truly missed by a lot of people (and animals!) and the 4 foot something feisty, compassionate, warm and loving woman will definitely be leaving a much bigger hole in our hearts. Gone but never forgotten, heaven has gained a truly blessed angel.
