It is with great sadness after a courageous battle right to the end, Christine passed away peacefully in her sleep at Bay Haven Care Community in Collingwood, on Saturday, January 9, 2021, in her 62nd year.  Christine was born in Collingwood on July 30, 1959 to parents Wallace Starret and Annie Stratton.  She is survived by her sister Helen (late Gary) Jamieson, brothers Ronald (Anne) Starret and John (Cheryl) Starret.  Also remembered by her nieces and nephews Mike (Louise) Jamieson, Heather (Ryan) Clute, James Starret, Rachel (Levente) Molnar, Jack Starret and 10 great nieces and nephews and many cousins.  Christine will be missed by her close friends in Oakville, Toronto, Collingwood and extended family in Scotland.  Christine’s work family Stikeman & Elliott  were very near and dear to her....with a heavy heart she will be sadly missed.
