Christine Walton RIP

Christine with Christina Kalpee at a recent parish event

We were saddened to hear of the death of Christine Walton earlier this week, after a short spell in hospital.

Christine has been a long time supporter of CAFOD through her time as Head teacher in Walthamstow and as a member of the Our Lady & St George parish J&P Group. More recently Christine was the CAFOD volunteer in the parish and was training to be a Schools Volunteer.

She was an enthusiastic and giving person and this was shown to its full extent when she hosted Zeza and Heluiza during their visit to the parish from Brazil as part of the Connect2 programme.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her daughter, Laura and her family and also to everyone whose lives were touched by Christine.

The funeral will be held on Friday 20th January at 12noon at Our Lady and St Georges RC Church, Walthamstow, E17 9HU http://www.olsg.co.uk

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen

Joanna with Christine

Jonathan Rodwell, chair of J&P group with Christine

  1. I worked with Christine at St Anne;s Catholic Primary School in Basingstoke and can honestly say that she was one of the loveliest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I will remember her fondly and keep her in my prayers. My sincere condolences to Laura – I know she was the light of Christine’s life.
