Christy Rohrbach was born December 16, 1948 and died October 31, 2018 of natural causes.

Christy was born in Seattle to parents Bill and Gerry Rohrbach. She moved with the family in 1962 to Snoqualmie Pass. Prior to her last place of residency Regency North Bend in North Bend, Washington, she cared for her mother in Bellevue for seventeen years.

She is survived by eleven siblings; David & Mia, George, Shawn & Andy, Joe, Paul & Ellen, Bridget & Gary, Mark & Kathy, Monica & Tom, Mary & Bill, Bob & Mary Anne and Ana. She is also survived by 26 nieces and nephews and many great nieces and nephews.

Christy is most fondly remembered by all her family and friends for the abundance of Christmas cookies she baked, often beginning on the dozens and dozens of them in late October. She was always duly noted for her delicious potato salad.

Christy was an active member of the Seattle Choral Company for two decades both singing with the company in public events and session recordings as well as taking an active role in volunteering to help manage the company. When she could, she sang with the choir at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Snoqualmie and ushered for several years at St. Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue.

Christy spent much of her leisure time on very fine needle point works that now hang in various family homes. She was an avid cross-country skier and loved the groomed trails around the Snoqualmie Pass and Hyak ski areas. She was a member of the Fall City Rough Riders club for several years.

Christy was a life-long Catholic and was able to receive Communion up to her last days. A Celebration of Christy’s Life will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in Snoqualmie, Washington Friday, November 9 at 11:00 a.m. A luncheon will follow the service.
