CHRISTINE COMEGYS BODE

Christine "Chirs" Comegys Bode, age 66, of Plano, TX died on November 21, 2018.

Chris was born in Wilmington, DE. She attended Brandywine High School and continued on to graduate from the University of Delaware. After graduating from college, she joined Atlas Powder Company. Early in her career with the company, Chris accepted a position in the Dallas office where she worked in customer service and pricing manager positions until retiring at the end of 1999. In 1981, Chris and Steven were married at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Wilmington, DE and returned to Dallas where they spent their life together.

After her retirement, Chris pursued her childhood dream of owning a horse and broadening her horsemanship abilities. She taught riding skills to kids, rode her horse for pleasure and competed for many years with her horse at a local horseshow. Chris always loved animals and was particularly fond of cats and horses. In addition, she enjoyed travel both domestically and internationally and especially the annual family trip to the Jersey shore.

She is survived by her husband of 37 years, Steve, and her brother and sister-in-law, Kenneth P. and Lee Ann Comegys of Newark, DE. Her loving and caring personality, joyous laughter, keen wit and broad knowledge will be missed.

A memorial service will be held at 1 pm, Saturday, January 12, 2019, at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 2313 Concord Pike, Wilmington, DE. Entombment will be private.
