Christine King died on December 2,2020 at her home in Wiscasset, Maine.
Born on June 19, 1965 in Boston, Massachusetts, she was a 1983 graduate of Marblehead High School and received a degree in Art History from Colby College in Maine in 1988. During high school she played varsity soccer and was an officer at the Pleon Yacht Club. Starting in 1988, from offices first in Boston and then in Brooklyn, St. Louis, Chicago and most recently in Wiscasset for Dietl International Services, Christine worked with museums and private collectors, including one resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, to coordinate the safe movement of priceless fine art and antiques, she was well known and highly respected nationally in her field.
As an artist she decorated her home with her collages, sculptures and paintings. She was an avid Red Sox fan and loved going to Fenway Park.
She is survived by her mother, Carolee King of North Carolina, her father and step-mother, Carl and Denise King of Oregon, her brother and his wife, Carl and Nancy King of Maine, her sister and her husband, Rebecca King and Colin Kessinger of California, her brother and his wife, Timothy and Kristie King of California, her step-sister, Jennifer Roberts of Colorado, her step-brother, Christopher Roberts of Oregon, and six nephews and nieces: Natalie, Jacob, Mitali, Mariana, Rose and Urban, for whom she was their Auntie Tina.
She cherished her pets, Benta and William, and spoiled them with treats and love. She was a great cook and loved surprising a neighbor with one of her gourmet creations. Her flower gardens also showcased her creativity and won rave reviews from neighbors and others who detoured past her home to enjoy or take a picture. We will miss her crazy sense of humor, her beautiful smile and her caring soul. The next time you hear a Tom Petty song, please sing along in her memory.
