Christine Rains

March 31, 1945 - May 11, 2018

We are sad to announce that Christine passed away peacefully in her home. She is predeceased by her much loved husband of more than 40 years, Bruce, her parents Joan and Arthur, and siblings Kenneth and Irene. Christine will be forever cherished by her children, Paul (Michelle), Tony (A'Lana) and Kirsten (Chad) and most adored grandchildren, Gabrielle, Stella, Jonah, Samuel and Kasey. Christine will also be missed by family and friends in her native New Zealand and Australia including her loving brother Grant (Theresa) and sister in law Dorothy (Richard) and their families. Christine was an amazing and dedicated teacher at Duffield school for more than 25 years. She adored her students and volunteered countless hours coaching a number of successful school sports teams. Her compassion and desire to help others continued after retirement volunteering for many years at the Westview Continuing Care in Stony Plain. At Christine's request there will be no memorial service. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Edmonton Humane Society online or at 13620 163 Street, Edmonton, Alberta, T5V 0B2.
