Christine Eleanor Hych was born February 5, 1927 in Lynchburg, Virginia to Louis J. Anderson and Lucy Roach. She attended primary & secondary school in Baltimore, Maryland. After graduating, Christine worked various jobs until she met and married the love of her life, Woodie Hych Jr. They married August 28, 1951 and moved to Kansas City, Kansas.
Christine was baptized in 1951 at First Baptist, located at 5th & Nebraska in Kansas City, KS, under the direction of Dr. E.A. Freeman. She moved her church membership from First Baptist to Church of the Ascension, which merged with St. Paul’s Episcopal. Upon her departure, Christine was a faithful member of Oak Ridge Missionary Baptist Church.
Christine’s love of children inspired her to become a CNA for many years at St. Margarette and Providence Hospitals in Kansas City, Kansas, where she worked in the nurseries. In 1963, she left Providence to pursue her husband’s passion and opened Woodie’s Retail. As a well-known staple in the community, Woodie’s remained open until 1997.
Christine’s mother, Lucy Roach-Williams, and father, Louis J. Anderson on her right side, and on her left side, Jessie Williams, paved the way for her heavenly journey. Christine is walking hand-in-hand with her husband, Woodie T. Hych Jr. She also joined her brother, Earnest Williams, son-in-law, George Williams Jr., great-grandson, Darrian Stevens, and great-great granddaughter, Ma’Liyah Stevens, on their heavenly journey.
Those left to continue Christine’s legacy are her children, W. Tyrone Hych III, Deborah Hych, Pamela Hych, and Carla Williams, seven grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
