Inez Jaudon, and Fannie McCleskey (deceased), her brother Robert Searcy (deceased), and with many cousins and friends. Christine, along with her parents and siblings, moved to Dayton, Ohio, in the mid-1950s. While in Dayton, she met her husband, Eddie Lee Trayvick, Jr., and together they raised five children: Rose Alexander (Vic), Brenda Jones, Karen Trayvick, Audra Carnell, and Terrence (Sandy) Trayvick.

Christine spent the bulk of her work life in retail as a faithful employee of the Elder Beerman Department Store chain until she retired in the spring of 1999. She was a faithful member of Macedonia Baptist Church for over 50 years where she greeted everyone with a glowing smile and a hug. After her retirement she enjoyed her daily walks around the indoor mall or Lowes Department store with her close friends, and spending daily quality time with her husband, children, grandchildren, sisters, other relatives, and close friends.
