“Even when she got home she’d be driving between us all to spend time with us and her grandchildren, who she loved so much.”
He added: “Mum’s colleagues have said that she always made time for the people she cared for and went above and beyond for them.
“She took time to sit with them, even if it was longer than she should, just to hold their hand and make sure they were OK. She worked long hours but she was so passionate about her work.”
Her son said that Christine, an Arsenal supporter, enjoyed socialising and was a bubbly person.
He said: “She always made time for her family and friends. She was so loved by us all, and we’ll miss her.”
The family welcome people who knew Christine to join them at her funeral, which is taking place on Wednesday December 4, at 12.30pm, at Islington Crematorium.
