Christina Elaine SUTHERLAND

(nee Poulton)

Born in Murrayville, March 25, 1955, Mom died suddenly but peacefully March 16, 2009 at home with her family and animals by her side.

Chris was predeceased by her mom, Mona Poulton.

She leaves behind loved ones to celebrate her life and carry on her love of living and animals. She leaves behind her partner and soulmate, Lee; children: Sean Noble, Stacy (Shawn) Baginski; grandchildren: Aiden and Jordyn Baginski; father, Joe (Kathy) Poulton; siblings: Bob, Linda (Phillip), Diana (John), Dick (Dee), nieces Mallory (James), Olivia (Leah); nephews: John, Harv (Gillian), Ron, Rick (Elaine), Alan (Barb), Eric.

She is survived by many great-nieces and -nephews as well.

Mom was a loving and caring woman who always put others ahead of herself. She lived each day to the fullest, never letting anything hold her back. She loved spending time with her soulmate, Lee, as much as she could. She also loved to spend time with her grandchildren each and every day as well as with her children.

Mom was also known as the crazy cat lady due to her extreme love of cats. Who else would have given a cat CPR but Mom. She was very much a lover of nature and everything it had to offer. Some wouldn’t be surprised to know she loved the ¼ mile. She would love the rush it gave her going down the track in her ’79 Camaro Z28.

Mom lived for helping others in life which we are sure she carries on in passing. She is going to be sadly missed by all who got the gift given to us by someone up above who thought we needed an angel in our lives, because that is what she was. She was a loving partner, mother, sister, aunt, but most of all a great friend to everyone she met and knew.
