June 4, 1962 – Red Deer, Alberta
April 30, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
Christine Fielding of Calgary passed away on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at the age of 51 years.
Christine was a loving daughter, caring sister, and devoted aunt. She dedicated much of her life to educating children at French immersion schools including Banff Trail Elementary where she touched the lives of generations of students. She had a sense of adventure: she studied in Quebec, travelled abroad and loved to hike, particularly in the Rocky Mountains. Christine’s enthusiasm for genealogy and her unique family history encouraged her to journey to unusual locations. She had a passion for a wide-range of music and played her piano in every free moment. Her valiant battle with lymphoma ended suddenly.
Christine is survived by her mother Bridget; her sister Helen; brother Paul; brother-in-law John; sister-in-law Jenn; niece Harley; nephew Zander; and her many friends and students.
