Christine McCue

 

Christine and PoeBorn in Camden, New Jersey on November 8, 1933 to Samuel and Angeline Radogna. Christine was the younger of two daughters. Christine lived in South Jersey all her life until 2009 when she moved to Kenmore, Washington to be close to her son and daughter-in-law.

In her younger days Christine enjoyed dancing to music of her time in the 50s. As she got older she continued tapping her feet to music but now it was; Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck and of course some Frank Sinatra.

Christine’s working career mostly involved various Title and Escrow Companies. Summer vacations on the Jersey Shore were one of the family’s most favorite outings, especially Wildwood New Jersey just south of Atlantic City and the famous Boardwalks. Christine’s love for animals (well, mostly dogs) was easy to see. She had so many and loved treating them better than real family (almost). Later in life she had her one and only cat which she thought she would never like. See photo … It was love at first sight.Christine & SonChristine is survived by husband Hugh F. McCue, son and daughter In-law Robert and Marlene Huntsinger, sister and brother In-law Rosanna and Renato Volpe, nephew and wife David and Christine Volpe and many cousins.

Christine loved the Lord and attended church all her life. Her last church roots were in St. Brendan’s Catholic Church in Bothell, WA. Unfortunately her mobility reduced her attendance in the last few years of her life; however it did not stop her Love for the Lord. We believe she has run the race and has finished strong.

…I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (NIV)

 

Christine and Family2 copyChristine had many conflicting health issues which were not able to be corrected. Christine departed peacefully on October 1, 2014 at the Evergreen Health Hospice Care Center. This amazing place has the most relaxing setting; however what really makes this Hospice Care Center so comforting are the people that work and volunteer there. Their amazing love, giving and kind spirit has allowed Christine to truly finish the race in peace.

    Dearest Rob and Marlene,
    I love that Christine loved the Lord!
    The moments of having a loved one pass on so bitter-sweet. By bringing your mom here to be near you, you created so many great memories that will make you smile in days and years to come. I love how you involved Christine in many of our “family” outs with friends and spend so much time with her. She was blessed by you in so many ways. Our prayers are with you. Hugs, Sandy

    To Rob and Marlene,
    What a lovely portrait of your mom! Christine certainly enjoyed life and was so proud of you. I would have loved to have seen her dancing to the music of the 50’s with that beautiful smile she wore! And now, she’s dancing praises to her King! Your devotion certainly testifies to what it means to “honor your parents”. She reaped eternal blessings as she witnessed your personal journey with our Lord!
    “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His holy ones” (Psalm 116:15)
    Peace and healing, prayers and hugs!

    Dear Rob & Marlene,

    What a beautiful way to honor your mother and celebrate her life. I’m so glad she was able to live closer to you for the last few years – that you have more memories to cherish. This song comes to mind…”What a day that will be.”

    Love you both,

  • Robin Reed says:

    Dear Rob and Marlene,

    So sad to hear of Christine’s passing. My prayers go out to you in your loss. We will so miss her at Heron Landing. Your Mom was always smiling and laughing! She was a real “girlfriend” to so many of us. We will always remember that very special Birthday you made happen for her. Then there was the day she came tooling in “driving” her chair. We had a long chat about how much she had just enjoyed herself at the out door beer garden here in Kenmore. She was really taken with that time. So God Bless you both and know that you both are in our prayers at this time. Love and hugs, Robin and Heron Landing friends of Christine

    I worked with your mom for about six months in Bothell, and just wanted to say she was a wonderful lady who always brightened my day with her stories and fun sense of humor. I will remember her always! Best wishes to your family! This is a lovely tribute page and I can just imagine her laughing at parts of it.
