It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Christine Ruth Reichert on Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at the age of 54. Loving Mom of Matthew Slatina and Christopher Slatina of Welland, Ontario. Beloved sister of Johanna Schmelter and brother-in-law Tillmann Schmelter and aunt of Daria and Dominic. Christine is predeceased by her parents Edward and Margaret Reichert, former owners of Lincoln Meat Market of Fenwick. She will be missed by her extended family in Canada, England, Germany and elsewhere.

Christine was active in many local charities in Pelham including Open Arms Mission Food Bank and Pelham Cares and received a commendation from Tim Hudak for her volunteer hours. She was also involved in the Business Society, Kidney Support and the Lupus Society.

Christine’s family would like to thank the staff and friends she met at Welland Hospital-LTC during dialysis for their support.

A Rite of Committal has taken place at Hillside Cemetery in Ridgeville. Memorial donations made to Open Arms Mission Food Bank or the Welland Humane Society (Seaway Mall) would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Lampman Funeral Home.


  • We are very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother and sister. We remember Christine (Christel) and the
    Reichert family when Gerhard worked for Lincoln MeatMarket. Cherish your memories of her, they will comfort you at this difficult time.
    Monica & Gerhard Walz
