Christine Hendley (Bryant) was a woman of valor who was born
on November 10, 1939 in Newark, NJ. Christine was the youngest
out of 17 children by parents Fletcher and Mary Bryant. Her
surviving siblings are Betty Wilburn and Carl Bryant.
Christine was employed through L’oreal/Lancôme where she later
Christine married the man of her dreams, Jimmie Hendley in 1956.
Christine leaves behind three sons Kevin, Gary and Antoine, a
bonus daughter n-law Lauri. Eleven grandchildren Quatrilla,
Rahameen, Lynette, Anita (granddaughter-in-law) Corey, Na’
Tasha, Malik Sr. (grandson-in-law,) Glen Jr. Danielle, Bria, and
Dallas. Nine great grandchildren Aminah, Jaquaya, Kamirah, Aiden,
Skylar, Cameron, Ariya, Zivah and Malik Jr.
Christine didn’t have much patience in curbing her tongue or
enthusiasm but had much patience with cooking from scratch in the
kitchen, lending her hand and ear when needed. Many of her nieces
and nephews referred to her as “Aunt Chris” her grand and great
grandchildren as “Momma.” On Saturdays, she cooked and cleaned
all day while on Sundays she rested and enjoyed her family.” Each
Sunday dinner was a feast for those who were hungry. She taught
life lessons using her hands as an example. She enjoyed style and
fashion with quality clothing and jewelry. She always made sure
your first impression of her was one you’ll never forget. Christine
was known for feeding and nurturing people in her community. Her
warm embrace never let anyone leave her house without a plate of
food, laughter, and a tight hug. Before you walked out of the door to
say goodbye she would always say “Give everybody my love.”
