Celebrating the life of

Christine Wilson

In celebration of her life, Christine's family has prepared the below tribute.

Peacefully, Christine Wilson (Aberdeen and formerly Kemnay), passed away on Wednesday 28th April, with Janet and Joshua by her side, following a 3 year battle with cancer.

Wife of (late) Clifford Wilson, Mum to Fiona, Susan and Janet, Granny to Joshua and Brodie.

She was positive to the very end.

Christine has chosen to donate her body to medical research, and as such a typical funeral is not held. Instead, a memorial service will take place, which unfortunately has limited numbers due to the current COVID restrictions.

You may have known Christine from Kemnay, or you may know her as the former receptionist at Black & Lizar's Opticians on Union Street, or by being the cheery Red Cross Meet & Greet wifey at the Rotunda entrance at ARI helping to support and guide you on your way. You may know her as your relative, friend, neighbour, colleague, or as the Mum or Granny to her daughters and grandsons.

We have chosen to suggest donations to Friends of ANCHOR, in lieu of flowers.

She benefited from the wonderful services this charity provides to cancer patients at ARI - she especially enjoyed the tailored pampering treatments from Carrie.

We have received some really lovely messages from people after sharing the sad news, who remember her positivity and fun and banter, so please, leave your name, and a memory of her for us to enjoy reading, whilst supporting her favourite charity.

Thank you.

Janet

Christine, I remember you as that special person who put others needs before their own. The rotunda meet and greet will miss that angel for ever more…. Love to Janet and all the family. Xx
I am so sorry for your loss. Deepest condolences to you and your family.
Lots of love x 
Sending much love, thoughts and prayers. Xxx
So very sorry for your loss 
Christine was an extension to our family and we loved her! Condolences to you all! Love Jo, Steven, Ava and Harrison Uhles 
She was always such a cheery soul and went out of her way to be helpful to Al and I.

Christine was so couthy, always there with a smile and a friendly voice at the end of the phone, or a cheery smile at the rotunda in ARI. On my second work visit to the hospital, I’d been going in circles looking for radiotherapy, and your mum came to my aid as I was “looking a little lost!” She pointed me in the right direction and we had a good blether.

I felt much more confident in those first few visits, knowing I could ask her for help if needed! She will have brought that comfort to so many people over the years she volunteered
Great photos of your mum, Janet. Thinking of you and your family at this sad time. Deborah x
Sorry for your loss. Lovely words about your mum. 
So sad to hear of your passing. Was lovely to know you and thanks for all the shifts you did at ARI. The meet & greeters will miss you and the seat will never be the same. Love to all the family

Thinking of you at this very sad time. Be kind to each other xx 
God bless.
Enjoyed working together as volunteers, became good friends & enjoyed many lunches & visits to the cinema. Christine was kind hearted and had a good sense of humour. I will miss my friend a lot.
