Christine Cowderoy

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Christine Lee Cowderoy on Thursday, April 25th, 2019.

She fought a strong and very brave battle dealing with her serious health issues, with the goal of getting better so she could be with her family and friends.

She was a devoted daughter, sister, aunt, niece, and friend to many. Chris is survived by her mother Virginia, sister Sherry her husband Bill (Begue), their children Gary and Diana; brother Michael, his wife Christina her children Paul and Robin; brother Dwayne Scott, his wife Joy, their children Holly her husband Ricky (Timms) and Breanna and her partner Clinton (Brook).

Chris was born in Seattle on November 19th 1952 to Paul and Virginia Cowderoy. Her beloved father Paul sadly passed away October 8th, 2017 and they will now be together in Heaven. Her mother Virginia is living a very fulfilling life in the north end of Seattle as she has for the last nearly 75 years, although she now has a great sorrow from such an incredible loss of her special daughter Chris and her incredible husband Paul.

Chris absolutely enjoyed conversations and always wanted to know about all the family and what they were doing. The Family “Get-Togethers” were very important to her, and family meant everything to her. She had a passion for sports, she enjoyed bowling among others activities also participating in many in the Special Olympics at Fort Lewis and won many awards. Chris was an avid Seattle Mariner fan, and Ichiro was her favorite player. Chris had a artistic side to her, she enjoyed drawing, and was able to put together complex puzzles.

Chris worked at numerous jobs throughout her life with the assistance of the Northwest Center. The last job that she had and enjoyed incredibly was with TJ Max.

It is impossible to adequately describe the many facets and attributes that made Chris the very special person that she was. She had a connection and lasting impact on many people throughout her life. Her death has left an enormous void which can never be filled. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.

The family is grateful to our many friends for the outpouring of love and support. Especially the Nellie Goodhue Group Homes where she was living in her later days.

    I just now read about Chris. My heart goes out to Virginia and the rest of her family. Whenever I saw Chris she always had a smile and she was always interested in who she was talking to. The world just got a little sadder.
