1929 - 2022
Christine Bird, age 92 of Fair Oaks, CA was called home to be with our Lord on November 27, 2021. Christine was the firstborn child to Olard and Stella Mae Reedy on March 4th, 1929, in Middlesboro, Kentucky. Born a Southern Baptist, she never strayed from her faith in Jesus Christ. She took great solitude in listening to her family members singing praise songs.
She was the big sister to one brother, Fred, and six sisters, Carolyn, Judy, Wanda, Barbara Fae, Joyce Ann and Yvonne. When she was eighteen, she married Donald Booth and gave birth to two sons, Harley Eugene and Lawrence Leon Booth. In 1955, she married James Virgil Bird and gave birth to one daughter, Pamela Kay, and two sons, James Virgil, Jr. and Keenan Wayne.
Christine was a rock and a survivor! She was independent, proud, strong, giving, loving and more beautiful than she knew. She had a long and meaningful life. Married for fifty-three years, she traveled to places only a few could dream of. She made many life-long friends throughout her travels and had a significant impact on all who knew her. She loved gardening and had a definite green thumb, especially with roses. She was ‘The Plant Lady’ throughout many businesses in the Sacramento area. Christine will always be remembered graciously.
She is survived by her children, Harley Eugene of Sacramento CA, Pamela Kay of Seward Alaska, James Virgil Jr. of Bakersfield CA, and Keenan Wayne of Rocklin CA. Christine also had numerus grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by four sisters, and a multitude of nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband of fifty-three years, James Virgil Bird; her son, Lawrence Leon Booth; her siblings, Carolyn, Barbara Fae and Fred.
