Christine Frances Ralph reached eternal rest early September 17th, in Waterbury, at 49 years of age. She was born in Norwalk, Connecticut, in February of 1969 to Lynn Bassett and James Ralph. Christine was a loyal paralegal secretary for Attorney Gary L. Broder for over 20 years, until his retirement in 2015. She loved those around her unconditionally, and would open her heart, home, and car to anyone in need. She was an animal lover, an avid reader, and an incredibly strong willed spirit, just a few of the many qualities that made her an amazing woman. Left to cherish her memory are her children, Rebecca, Nicole, Sara, Jason, Justin, and Cassandra, her loving husband David, her grandchildren Kylie, Sean, and Bentley, her sister Michele, her aunt Shari-Lyn, and her father James. She is also survived by a large extended family of cousins, aunts, and uncles. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, September 30th from 11:00 ~ 2:00 at the VFW Mattatuck Post 8075 located at 218 Cheshire Road, Prospect, CT. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to your favorite charity of choice in her honor.
