Christine Smith | 1964 - 2018

Staff Announcement by The Stratford Festival, October 4, 2018.

It is with great sorrow that we’ve learned of the passing of Christine Smith, a member of our Wardrobe department for the last 34 seasons. Born and raised in Stratford, Christine began her Festival career in 1985 as a sewer. From 1987 through 1995 she also served as a wardrobe attendant, focusing solely on that role from 1996 to the present. She enjoyed travelling and had many animals that were very dear to her, especially her horse Ben, with whom she took part in the equestrian sport of dressage. Our deepest condolences to Christine’s sister, Janice Humphrey, her niece, Tanya, her great-nephew, Elliot, and other members of her family. She will be sadly missed.

At present we do not have any details to share regarding the memorial arrangements when this is available we will notify staff.

As presented by the Stratford Beacon Herald, October 8, 2018.
