Christine Willa Berrey Heintz, 92, died Oct. 20, 1995 of congestive heart failure.
A long time resident of Comanche County, she was born May 2, 1903.
She was married to Ralph E. Heintz Sept. 1, 1929. They had two daughters. He died in 1946.
In 1949, Mrs. Heintz and her daughters moved to Coldwater, where she taught in the elementary school for the next 23 years. It pleased her so to hear from her former students.
Mrs. Heintz was also preceded in death by her grandson, Eric Swisher.
She is survived by two daughters, Barbara Heintz Moss and Carolyn Heintz Swisher of San Diego, Calif.; two sisters, Mrs. Bernarr M. Seaman of Coldwater and Mrs. Ward R. Booth of Forsyth, Mo.; grandchildren, Clay Swisher, Barbara Swisher Dailey and Shannon Swisher; one great grandchild, her namesake, Christine Dailey, age 16 months.
A celebration of life ceremony will be held at her home in California. In lieu of flowers, a teaching scholarship fund has been set up in the name of Christine Heintz in the Coldwater Public School System.
Mrs. Heintz recently wrote a short history for her immediate family and closing remark was as follows: "Yes, life is good if you wish to make it work for you. Have faith, love and an understanding of right and wrong." She will be dearly missed.
Christina Heintz is buried in the Wilmore Cemetery.
