Christine Coons Obituary

Woodstock – Christine S. Coons, 75, a resident of Woodstock, passed away peacefully in her home on Saturday September 9, 2023 with her loving husband by her side.

Born in Brooklyn, NY on March 24, 1948, she was the daughter of the late Frederick E. and Gertrude E. (Brower) Coons.

Christine spent many summers in Rhinebeck. She was friends with the Dapson children and grew up playing in the original funeral home, often getting scolded for playing in the caskets with her friend Sheri.

On a beautiful fall day in Woodstock, she married the love of her life and her rock on October 18, 1997, Glen H. Thorne. Glen survives at home.

Christine enjoyed reading, cooking, antiquing and watching her birds. She loved traveling with Glen, one of their most memorable trips being to the Haudenosaunee Reservations of the Seneca and Tuscarora Tribes in Upstate New York where they were able to stop and see Niagara Falls.

She worked for many years at Hannaford in Kingston, managing various departments over the years.

In addition to her husband, Christine is survived by her brother Donald Coons and his wife Edna of Connecticut; her nieces Sara and Carolyn; a nephew Matthew; close friends Nancy and Jimmy Wheeler as well as friends and neighbors John and Pam.
