Born in Poe, WV on Independence Day, 1937, Christine was a daughter of the late Thomas and Lottie (Wilson) Mullins.

She is survived by her daughters, Edith Williams and her husband, Vince and Penny McSwain; sisters, Edith Lowry and her husband, George and Francis Gray; grandson, Allen W. McSwain; and great grandchild, Riley McSwain.

A funeral service will be held at 11 am on Saturday morning, January 9, 2016, at the Chapel of Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a visitation for family and friends will be held from 10 am until 11 am. Interment will follow in the adjoining memorial park.
