Christine B. Isenhart, 89, of Idaho Falls, passed away Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.
Christine was born April 7, 1924, in Evanston, Wyo., to James Brown and Mary Alice Duncombe Brown. She grew up in Evanston and eventually settled in Idaho Falls.
On Oct. 16, 1950, she married Henry Clay Isenhart at her sister's home in Evanston. They were sealed in the Logan, Utah, LDS Temple on Oct. 16, 1951. Her beloved husband, Henry, passed away June 6, 2000.
Christine graduated from high school in Evanston in 1942, focusing as much as possible on business subjects. During her lifetime, she pursued that profession entirely.
In her youth, she worked as a bookstore clerk for her brother-in-law, Scott Taggart. During World War II, she worked in the Union Pacific railroad shops. Later, she worked for Mountain Fuel Supply Co., and then the U.S. Depot in Ogden, Utah, before moving to Idaho Falls, where she worked for Roger Brothers Seed for four years. She then accepted a job with General Motors, where she retired in 1979 as an accounting supervisor.
She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, accepting many calls throughout her membership. Christine was very creative; she enjoyed knitting, quilting, various crafts and painting.
Christine is survived by her brother, Joseph Brown of Provo, Utah; sister, Alice B Crompton of Portland, Ore.; stepson, William Isenhart of Baltimore; four grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; stepson, James Isenhart; sisters, Addie Taggart and Mary Williams; and a brother, James Dick Brown.
