Obituary

CHRISTINA WELKER, 64, died unexpectedly at her home in Lundbreck Alberta on the 20th of September 2021. 

Christina was born November 29, 1956 in Vancouver. She spent most of her life in British Columbia, with the exception of the past 10 years or so, where she first bought a home in Pincher Creek, and then later built a lovely new home in Lundbreck Alberta. 

Christina served as a corrections officer for many years.  She was an extraordinary woman who found true solace in the quietness and gentleness of Mother Earth. She spent a lot of time with her two German Shepards Musqua & Meesha — her main companions in this life. She would take them for long walks in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and swims in the rivers. Christina loved growing herbs, planting flowers, and watching the birds sing their special songs. She loved cooking and creating healing remedies and found relaxation in arts and crafts. She was a kind, giving and nurturing woman and anyone who was close to Christina felt the tremendous love in her heart.

Christina was a passionate Shaman.  She spent every waking moment conversing with nature in one way or another.  She became a very active member of The Kimmapii School of Shamanism and devoted more than 15 years of study to the field of shamanic healing and nature based medicines.  Generous and caring, Christina would often to take budding young Shaman under her wing and mentor them in their studies.  To this end, her dream was to leave a legacy in her name that would sponsor other people for further Shamanic training.  

Christina leaves behind her sister Constance, a step-sister Sherry, a step-brother Mark, her sister-friend Melanie, as well as many, many friends whose lives she profoundly touched to mourn her loss.

A note written by Christina…     “off to the spring summer routine now.  Walks in the early wee mornings, watching the sunrise it always leaves me with breathing taking wonder; to be still, mindful and celebrate each moment with joy.  The hills abound turquoise in greens, punctuated by acres of yellows, pinks, turquoise, cream and whites of our wild flowers here.”
