Born in Kingussie Scotland, Christine was the only daughter of the late James and Mary Spencer (nee Hutchinson), she was also predeceased by her father and mother in law; Benjamin and Mary Buffett. Leaving to mourn with many fond and precious memories are her loving and devoted husband James Buffett of 28 years. A proud mother, grandmother and great grandmother she will forever remain in the hearts of her daughters; Heather (Jim) Porter, Danette (Enos) Meade, and Tracey Squarey who were there for their mom every step of the way to ensure she could spend her final days at home resting comfortable with her family just as she wanted it to be. Nan will also be sadly missed by her grandchildren; Angela (Steve) Clevett, Samantha Kelly, Kyla Porter, Matthew (Danika) Mackenzie, Kelsey Porter, great grandchildren; Jayden, Jared, and Charley who were the apples of her eye. She will also be fondly remembered by her step sons Scott and Dean, step grandson Leonard and her brothers and sisters in law; Peter (Jessie) Buffett of Fortune, NL, Elsie (Hugh) Fudge of Carbonear, NL, Joan (Joe) Felix of Codroy, NL, Wanda (Paul) Foote of St. John's, NL and Joe (Geraldine) Buffett of Sackville, NS, special cousins Norma (Angus) Vallis of Harbour Breton, NL, Gertie (Chesley) Kane of Port aux Basques, NL and a large circle of cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family and many wonderful friends.
Christine was a beautiful and talented lady, from a very young age she knew she loved music and used these gifts of her talent to do many community fundraisers. She could be found any night of the week playing at church functions, community dances, parties or just relaxing with her family and entertaining them on her deck where she played her accordion with Jim accompanying her with his guitar and singing some of their favourite tunes. Her fondest and most prized in all she did was the St. James Men's Choir which she founded and directed for over 20 years. For weeks she would practice and stress over this event and on concert night you could always see the smile on her face and the twinkle in her eye and this group of men were so near and dear to her heart (my boys as she called them). Anyone and everyone was always welcomed into her home for fun and fellowship and of course her famous desserts kept everyone coming back. Christine has left a void in the lives of her family, friends and a whole community that she loved so very much, she will live on in our hearts forever.
Visitation taking place on Monday, February 11th from 2-4 and 7-9 pm at East Haven Funeral Home Inc. (Downtown Location).
