Funeral services were held at the Orangeville Presbyterian Church; Rev. F.W. Schwenk, pastor of the Evangelical Church officiating.

Christina is remembered by many as a maker of very good cheese and sausage and the family income was supplemented by the sale of these products. Her cheese business became so extensive that an additional room was built for this purpose.

Their family consisted of eleven boys and three girls, in addition to which, this kind hearted couple reared a motherless little girl, Grace Meade.

Their children: Charles, John, Ed, Sarah, Henry, Emma, Mary, Walter, William, Albert, Jesse, Robert, Martin and Allen.
