Katherine Christ, Former Game Room Manager, Dies

Katherine Christ, of Virginia Beach, who managed the game room in Old Dominion University's Webb Center for nearly 40 years until her retirement in May 2008, died June 9, 2009. She was born July 12, 1922, in New York City.

She received the Student Services Award for her outstanding dedication to the well-being of Old Dominion students.

Many years after students graduated and moved on with their lives, Christ still heard from them, as well as from many former faculty and staff members.

Christ was a member of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral and a past member of the Philoptochos Society. She was predeceased by her husband of 41 years, John.

Before joining the university, she worked with him in their restaurant, John's Place, which was located next to the campus.

Survivors include a sister-in-law, five nieces and four nephews. Memorial donations may be made to the cathedral.

H.D. Oliver Funeral Apartments, Norfolk Chapel, handled the arrangements.
