Christine Marie Welsch-Mulholland

July 29, 1949 - September 10, 2018

Christine Marie Welsch-Mulholland, 69, passed away on Sept. 10, 2018, in Elk Grove Village.
She was born in Danville to William and Mary Welsch.
She leaves behind one sister, Rita (Don) Gayler; and five brothers, Bill (Emily) Welsch, Sam (Bonnie) Welsch, Jim (Susan) Welsch, Greg Welsch, and Brian (Tillie) Welsch.
In June of 1968, Christie married Frank Mulholland (Karen) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. They divorced in 2002. Together they raised five children, Melissa (Towner) Clark, Frank (Molly) Mulholland, Royce Mulholland, Mary (John) Mason, and Natalie Mulholland. Christie was most happy when she was spending time with her family. She was able to help raise each of her 10 grandchildren and was thrilled to do so.
Christie loved spending time in the garden. She enjoyed sewing and would often make clothes for her children and grandchildren. Being a lifelong fan of the Chicago Cubs, she rarely missed the chance to watch their games. Christie was considered wise and patient by the many people who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Although she will be deeply missed, Christie leaves behind a legacy. She set an example of kindness and peace that will be carried on by the family who cherished her.
A memorial visitation will be held on Friday, Sept. 14, 2018, from 5-8 p.m. at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Danville. A celebration of life will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, at the funeral home.
