OGDENSBURG -- Christine L (Michael) Dobbs age 45 passed away with dignity Friday, November 1, 2019 at the UHS Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City, NY. She was stricken while visiting friends in the area Monday, October 28 which allowed all her immediate family to be by her side for her final days.
There will be no calling hours or funeral service since a Celebration of Life will be arranged by her daughter, Julia Mae Dobbs, at another time.
Christine was born May 24, 1974 in Ogdensburg, New York to Roger J and Barbara J (Morrison) Michael formerly of Tupper Lake, NY. She is survived by her mother Barbara Michael of The Villages, FL and Ogdensburg, NY, her father Roger Michael and step-mother Polly Michael of Heuvelton, NY, her brother Mark Michael and fiance Stephanie Billington, her sister Marianne Michael Streeter all of Ogdensburg, NY, a son Brandon Dobbs of Rensselaer Falls, NY, a daughter Julia Mae Dobbs of Canton, NY, a granddaughter Kaylie Conant of Ogdensburg, NY and grandson Dontae Mitchell of Canton, NY.
She attended local schools and was very proud to receive her GED later in life. She was a farm worker then waitress for a while around Ogdensburg but most of all Christine loved being a caregiver and found folks in need everywhere she lived. Animals were also a passion of hers to the point that there were 16 ducks in a recently found waterway and Christine named every one of them. Cats and dogs were always welcome in her homes.
Christine had the privilege of singing with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir.
A marriage to John Dobbs ended in divorce.
Christine is predeceased by her maternal and paternal grandparents, uncles, aunts, nephew and cousins along with several in-laws.
