Christine Hatch

Oct. 6, 1943 — Dec. 17, 2013

Christine Majewski Hatch, 70, passed away Dec. 17, 2013, in Culpeper, Va. Mrs. Hatch was born Oct. 6, 1943, to Carl and Mary Majewski in Los Angeles, Calif.

Mrs. Hatch was a retired business owner of Ocean View Cottage Court in Kill Devil Hills, N.C. She loved the outdoors and the beach and was an avid golfer, cross-country skier, bird hunter and canoer/kayaker. She was a talented painter, knitter and seamstress and was active in her church, St. Andrew Episcopal Church in Gaylord, Mich.

Mrs. Hatch loved her home in Northern Michigan, where she lived since 1987. She was beloved by her many friends in Michigan and Florida. She was a gorgeous woman inside and out and lit up a room with her presence. She possessed remarkable patience and had an adventurous spirit. She was not afraid of anything (except lightening) and was up for any challenge. This served her well during her nearly 12-year battle with multiple myeloma. She had a huge heart with an unlimited capacity for love. She was a foster parent for many years in Los Angeles and every baby she cared for, no matter how long, received a handmade sweater, cap and booties.

Mrs. Hatch was preceded in death by her husband, Alvan S. “Pete” Hatch on Aug. 31, 2012; her father, Carl Majewski; sister, Jackie; sister-in-law, Alice Lewis; brothers-in-law, Ed Lewis and Tom Hatch; and nephew, Tom Hatch. Survivors include her mother, Mary Majewski; her children, Mary Apperson (Jerry Payne), Ken (Janine) Rodgers and Kimberly Rodgers; grandchildren, Kerry (Nicole) Apperson, Christine Apperson, Emma Rodgers, Sam Rodgers, Austin Whitmer and Jordan Bonnell; great-grandson, Liam Apperson; sister, Carolyn; brother, Tony (Chris); nieces and nephews, Cathy, Patti, Greg, Jeff, Kate (Ben), John, Meredith, Robert (Peggy), Becky and Nancy (Mike); great-nieces and -nephews, Jay, Megan (Mike) and son Logan, Mike (Teresa), Peter, Madison, Thomas, Peter, Micaela and Shea; and a sister-in-law, Margaret Hatch.

The family extends heartfelt thanks for the wonderful care supplied for many years by the staffs of the following: The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla.; Otsego Memorial Hospital Infusion Center in Gaylord; Northern Michigan Regional Hospital in Petosky, Mich.; and Culpeper Regional Hospital in Culpeper. A special thanks and undying gratitude to our loving aunt, Carolyn Wright, who gave the gift of stem cells, giving our family so many more years with our mom than we could ever have imagined.

A time of family visitation will be held Saturday, Dec. 21, from 12 to 1 p.m., at Clore-English Funeral Home in Culpeper. A memorial service will follow at 1 p.m., in the chapel of Clore-English Funeral Home with the Reverend Tom Hayes officiating. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the Hospice of the Rapidan, P.O. Box 1715, Culpeper, VA 22701, or the American Cancer Society, 1445 Rio Road East, Charlotteville, VA 22901. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Clore-English Funeral Home. Condolences may be given at clore-english.com.
