CHRISTINE (HURLBURT) CORLISS - BURLINGTON - Christine passed away peacefully on Jan. 26, 2014, at the age of 46. Born in Scituate, Mass., she spent childhood summers on the beaches of Cape Cod, where we are sure her soul will rest in peace forever. Known for her sharp wit and keen intelligence, she had much to offer and we are heartbroken that such a promising future was cut short. Christine is survived by her beloved son, Alex of Shelburne; her brother, Rick also of Shelburne; her brother, Jim and his wife, Laurie, of Switzerland; and her sister, Caroline, brother-in-law, Paul and nieces, Kiley and Emily of Scottsdale, Ariz.; and her stepmom, Anne Hurlburt of Shelburne. Also missing her greatly is Simon, her devoted Shih Tzu who never left her side. We'd like to especially thank her dearest friend, Johanna Laba, whose constant and soothing presence helped Christine's passing be filled with dignity, comfort and peace. Additionally, much love and appreciation goes to Sue Lindberg for her devotion and steadfast support through all of this. Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Vermont Respite House, to whom we are forever grateful. Many thanks also to the angels in Baird 6 at Fletcher Allen who took such great care of Christine. Memories or condolences can be shared at gregorycremation.com.
