In Loving Memory of

Christine Frances Baltrym
February 13, 1979 - August 26, 2017

Christine Frances Baltrym, 38, passed from this earth on August 26, 2017, with beauty and with light so strong this world could no longer contain. She was a devoted wife and mother, beloved daughter and sister. Christine was a gift to everyone she touched, and she has her heavenly reward, to look after us from above.

Christine was born to William and Dorothy (Roll) Wine on February 13, 1979. She married Arthur M. Baltrym, the love of her life, on July 8, 2011. Christine and Art have two young boys, Michael and Anthony, and they're the most beautiful pieces of their parents' eyes and smiles. These boys will grow knowing that Faith, Family, and Hope are the arms that will always wrap around them.

Christine grew up in Falls Church, Virginia. She graduated from Bishop O'Connell High School, and finished her schooling with a Master's Degree in Education from George Mason University. Her career focused on Special Education; she was a champion of the underdog, always trying to make the lives of those who had it harder, better.

In addition to her parents, Bill and Dorothy, husband Art, children Michael and Anthony ("Mookie"), Christine is survived by two brothers, Wayne and James, and their wives, Giovanna and Catie; sister Amanda, and husband Brian Akers; father and mother-in-law Art and Jan Baltrym; brother-in-law Jon Baltrym and wife Paige. She had the great fortune to be surrounded by many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and wonderful friends that loved her dearly.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to her Go Fund Me page,

A solemn funeral mass and service will be held at 10 am Saturday, September 2nd, 2017 at Saint James Catholic Church, 905 Park Avenue, Falls Church, Virginia. Christine will be laid to rest at National Memorial Park in Falls Church, Virginia.
