Christine A. Fix
July 10, 1928 - December 29, 2020
Christine A. Fix, age 92, of Oxford, PA, and formerly of Newark, DE, passed away on Tuesday, December 29, 2020.
Born in Pennwyn, PA, on July 10, 1928, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Gertrude (Mohn) Mull. Christine graduated from Shillington (PA) High School in 1946 and Reading (PA) Hospital School of Nursing in 1949. As a nurse, Christine met the love of her life and future husband when he returned, hospitalized, from WWII. She continued her career as a registered nurse at a Newark pediatric office, following the war. After the birth of her daughter, Christine dedicated her life to being a loving mother and homemaker. Her passion as a caregiver reached its pinnacle once she became a devoted grandmother, earning her the eternal badge of “Mom-mom”. Christine’s hobbies included playing the piano, baking, crossword puzzles, yard sales and flower gardening.
In addition to her parents, Christine was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, Robert L. Fix and her daughter, Roxanne Dawn “Rox” Smith. She is survived by her grandchildren, Daniel E. Smith (Elise) and Valerie C. Litchford (Rick), both of Elkton, MD; great grandchildren, R.J. Litchford and Sawyer Litchford; and son-in-law, Byron A. Smith of Lincoln University, PA
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of Ware Presbyterian Village for the years of attentive care.
All services will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Christine’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association, 399 Market Street, Suite 102, Philadelphia, PA.
