Christine Rae Sherlock, 70, passed away on Monday, July 3, 2023 at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Christine was born in Renovo, Pennsylvania to the late Raymond and Dorothy Witchey. She was a graduate of Bucktail Area Junior-Senior High School and attended Williamsport School of Commerce.
Christine worked 38 years with Sentara Leigh Memorial Hospital as a surgery scheduler and volunteered with the Salvation Army for the past 14 years. She loved dressing up in wild and sometimes crazy costumes for every holiday and also loved pink flamingos, Betty Boop, the beach and following the annual Worrell 1000 Race, reading, classic TV and spending time with family and friends, far and wide. She had a heart of gold and a joyous free spirit. Family and friends were known to affectionately refer to her by many endearments; Hippy Chick, Flamingo Lady, Crazy Lady and many more too numerous to mention. She was well loved, especially by her husband John, and will be dearly missed.
Left to cherish her memory are her loving husband of 29 years, John Sherlock; daughter Aimee Sherlock (Josh Mullins); brother-in-law Isaac Sherlock (Paula); grandchildren Ashleigh Jones, Breonna and Jayden Mullins; nephews Geoff and Cameron Sherlock and many other loving family members and friends.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, July 23, 2023 from 2-5 pm at the The Kroc Center Hampton Roads (Salvation Army), 1401 Ballentine Blvd, Norfolk, VA 23504.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff and nurses at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, the Cremation Society of Virginia and a special thank you to The Kroc Center Hampton Roads for all they have done for our Family and our Hampton Roads Community.
