Christine A. Heudorfer, 78, of Salisbury


SALISBURY — Christine A. Heudorfer, 78, passed away on Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021, at the McClure Miller Respite House surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on Feb. 10, 1943, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the daughter of John and Theresa (Stankiewicz) Colford.

After an internship at Wall Street, Christine started her career at Irving Trust in New York City. An unexpected encounter re-united her with former beau Paul Heudorfer, and they were married on June 21, 1964. Together, they enjoyed frequent trips from the city to the ski slopes of Vermont, where they eventually settled down to start a family. Christine celebrated 25 years at IBM as an executive secretary before retiring and working part-time at the National Bank of Middlebury.

Christine was a social butterfly who enjoyed cooking, canning, and flower gardening. She especially loved being by the ocean, toes in the sand. An avid reader and a natural entertainer, she loved watching her grandsons’ sporting events.

She is survived by her daughters, Karen Riley (Michael), of Biddeford, Maine, and Ingrid Kaufmann (Brandt), of Bridport; by her brother, John Colford (Rose); and by her three grandsons, Evan Riley, Karl Kaufmann, and Nikolaus Kaufmann.

She is predeceased by her parents and by her husband, Paul Heudorfer, who passed away on March 3, 2013.            

Calling hours will be held on Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021, from 2-4 p.m., at the Sanderson-Ducharme Funeral Home in Middlebury.

A Memorial service will be held on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2021, at 2 p.m., at the funeral home, located at 117 South Main Street, Middlebury. COVID restrictions apply, masks are required.
