It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Christine Annette (Keeler) Haydock. Christine died unexpectedly at age 55 on October 24th, 2019 in her home in Santa Rosa (Larkfield) CA, from a brain aneurism. She was born March 25, 1964 at Memorial Hospital, Santa Rosa CA.
Christine was raised in Santa Rosa, and was educated at Proctor Terrace Elementary, Santa Rosa Junior High, and Santa Rosa High (1982). She lived most of her life here in Sonoma County, aside from 1 year that she spent in Utah. She attended Santa Rosa Junior College and earned her BA in Business Administration from Sonoma State University. Christine worked for Bank of America for many years, and most recently for 20 years at State Fund Insurance. She was proud about the work and her accomplishments she had there. Christine had an incredible work ethic, exemplified by the fact that she rarely took days off from work and was extremely reliable.
Christine was an accomplished pianist and organist and as such was part of various musical and performing arts groups in the area. She loved playing and teaching the piano. Anyone who knew her, knew of her passion, love and talents for music and for playing her piano. People frequently commented that when she was playing the piano, she was “in her element.” She also loved exercising, especially going on walks in nature and being outdoors. Christine also played a big part in her church community, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was always looking for opportunities to serve or do special favors and surprises for others, including sharing her accomplished musical talents.
Christine was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and found great joy in serving those around her. She lived and loved the gospel of Jesus Christ, and her life is a great example of faith, charity, and love. Having lost so many family members early on, her love for the Savior and belief that families can be eternal, gave her great strength throughout her life.
Christine had one loving daughter, Marina (19) with her ex-husband Jeremy Haydock. She is survived by her daughter Marina Haydock, her brother Philip Morgan Keeler II, her two sisters Karen Pierce, and Darleen Keeler, as well as countless other family members and friends who loved her dearly. She was predeceased by her loving father Philip Morgan Keeler (1977) and mother Elizabeth Helen Keeler (1999), as well as a brother Henry Keeler, and 3 sisters, Noreen Keeler, Patricia Keeler and Bonnier Keeler.
The family would like to express their gratitude to all those who have shared their love and memories with us as we mourn her passing.
A Memorial service will be held at 3pm on Saturday November 2, 2019, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints chapel at 1725 Peterson Lane, Santa Rosa CA. The family would like to welcome all her friends to come and join us for this celebration of the life for Christine Haydock.
