Christine K. Schmidt
She was born Mildred but was way too sassy to stay a Mildred. As a teen she changed her name to Christine. She was previously of Morrisville and active in the Presbyterian church. One of the 10% that does 90% of the work: she was active with the youth group and the church suppers. She was a wiz behind the stove; the best soups and a master with birthday cakes. And she was a great seamstress making all her kids’ clothing. As a mom she wasn’t too strict as long as the “rid up their rooms.” She and her late sister Marion used to like to get into a little trouble: they may have had one cigarette and one drink a month. Later years found her crabbing in Barnegat Bay before moving to Logan Township to help care for her grandkids.
Her best friend broke up with a guy, the late Howard. He cried on Christine’s shoulder. That move always works. Their marriage was blessed by two children: William (Pam) and Sandy Lykens (Terry); and later by 6 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and twins just arrived making two great-great-grandchildren.
