CHRISTENA JEAN TIGHE
March 25, 1929 – June 11, 2021
With profound sadness the family of Christena Tighe announce her passing on June 11, 2021 at her home, with family by her side.
Christena was the beloved wife of Murray Tighe and the loving mother of Christy (Simon), Douglas (Maggie), Maureen (Grant), Mary (Bob), Cathy (Grant), Jeannie (Mark), Janet (Tony), and Frances (Fred). She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren, Ciara, Tim, Nick, Tracy, Holly, Patrick, Brett, Rory, Joel, Connor, Emily, Ian, Alex, Cody, Hannah, Allison and Jack and by her 13 great grandchildren. She was a wonderful Aunt Chris to her many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by her husband of 61 years, Murray Tighe, her son Brian Tighe, her sisters, Margaret Campbell and Catharine Higgins, and her grandsons Michael Tighe and Tyler Der.
Christena was born in Port Hope and moved to Maple Grove as a young girl. Christena and Murray purchased a home in Bowmanville as a young couple and she resided there for the remainder of her life.
Christena and Murray spent many enjoyable years travelling Canada and the world, visiting their children and grandchildren.
Christena was a lifelong member of St Andrews Presbyterian Church and a tireless volunteer for many community organizations. She loved her family, her books, her garden, her neighbourhood walks and reading the morning newspaper.
As a family we give thanks and deep gratitude for a life well lived. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St Andrews Presbyterian Church.
A Private family service will be held on Wednesday June 16th at 11 am, those wishing to view virtually please follow the link below.
