MADISON-On Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, a very loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and niece ended her long journey with Alzheimer's disease and began her journey to join her parents in heaven. Christie Lynn (McMillan) Wolfe was born on July 3, 1951, in Madison, the daughter of Betty and Mac McMillan. She went to St. Bernard Grade School, and graduated from East High School in 1969. Christie married Charles "Chuck" Wolfe on April 17, 1971, and they had two children, Jodi Lynn (Toby) Golembiewski and their children, Max and Sophie, and Scott (Chelan) Wolfe and their children Carter, Caden, and Sienna.
She is further survived by her sisters, Pam McMillan (Jon Brickner) and Mary Jo Muenkel (Fred); special aunt and best friend, Marilyn Mergen; many nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and great-nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Donnie; father-in-law, Charles Wolfe Sr.; maternal grandparents, Mickey and Marian Mergen; and paternal grandparents, Clara and Fred McMillan.
Christie had many jobs over the years. Her love of children led her to her position as a special education assistant in the MMSD. Christie enjoyed attending her kids sporting events, and she never missed any of them.
