She was the youngest child of Elmer Bailey and Amanda Sims Howard. Her family moved to the Roswell area in 1932 where she spent the rest of her life until 2 years ago when she moved to Spring/Houston, TX to be near her children and grandkids. Christine worked as a bookkeeper for Smith Machinery and Roswell ISD until her retirement in 1989.

She met the love of her life, Wandal “Lee” Harrison and they married on June 26, 1949. They were married for over 67 until his death in November 2017. He was always “sugar” to her.
