Christine Price Penglase
June 8, 1941 - August 27, 2020
Wife, mother, grandmother.
Friend, neighbor, teacher, singer.

Christine passed away last Thursday, August 27, 2020 surrounded by her family.

She is survived by her husband, Charles, 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Daughter to William and Elizabeth, she was born in Philadelphia and spent her childhood on Queen Lane in the East Falls section. She attended Germantown Friends School and later, Wheelock College.

Christine began her professional career teaching at the Doylestown Borough School and later went on to work at Linden Elementary School and the Doylestown United Methodist Church nursery school. She would later create and build the Carversville Christian Church nursery school. She retired from teaching in 2005 to spend her time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She continued her love of teaching by volunteering at Groveland Elementary School in the full-day Kindergarten program.

Christine has been a resident of Doylestown Boro since the 1960’s and truly loved the sense of community that exists here.

Her memory will live on in the love felt so keenly by those to whom she was close.

We miss you.

To all of you, Doug and I were so very sorry to hear about Chris's death. We have known you guys so long. Lots of memories especially of Craig and our son Michael. With all the children in whose lives Chris was a part, she leaves quite a legacy. Just wanted you to know we were thinking about you all. And that we send our love. And our most sincerest sympathies.

What a terrible loss to not only the Penglase family but to the world. Christine was such a gentle loving soul. I will always remember the laughter and joy we shared in Potter County. Loved having that time to get to know each other so much better. Will miss this great and gracious lady who understood the value of time spent reading a good book, taking a long walk, and sharing oneself with others. Joan and Harry Gacad.

Dear Charlie, Carolyn & Craig,
Such sad news. I knew Chris when we taught at Doylestown United Methodist Nursery School. I taught in the AM class and Chris taught in the PM classes.
Our prayers are with each of you through this difficult time.

Christine was a lovely woman who cared so much for her family. I will miss seeing her on her daily walk, often stopping to chat with me if I am out with my dog. I will also miss seeing her playing with her grandchildren who were so fortunate to have her as their caring grandmother. She and I did some singing together so I know she will be missed by her choir. She left us so quickly and memories of her will have to sustain everyone now. My deepest sympathy to Charlie and Caroline and Craig and his family. Phyllis Sexton
