Christina Lee Voliva

Christina "Christy" Lee Voliva, 46, of Hobucken, left this life to begin anew, pain and worry free, on Sunday, Feb. 22, 2009.  She was born in Marathon, Fla., to Thomas Austin and Carol Sadler Voliva on July 22, 1962. Christy's first few years of life were filled with sunshine, sand and water. Raised on Goose Creek Island, in the Hobucken and Lowland communities, further endeared her to a life on the water and a lasting relationship with the commercial fishing industry and those involved in it.  In her young adult years, Christy's love and knowledge of the commercial seafood industry took her to the southernmost point of the United States-Key West, Fla., where she chose to make her home, and then on to Freeport, Texas, for several years. Her career path took her up and down the Southeastern Seaboard, but her family ties eventually brought her back home to settle.  Always ready and willing to rally for the underdog, Christy built many long and lasting friendships based on that concept. She gave freely to those in need whenever possible, whether monetary, a meal, a place to rest, a shoulder or an ear. That was her nature.  Christy was preceded in death by her father, Thomas Austin Voliva; maternal grandparents, Sherwood and Irene Williamson Sadler; and paternal grandparents, Henry and Wera Rice Voliva.  She is survived by her son, Justin Henry Long of Bayboro; two grandchildren, who were the apples of her eye, Austin and Allen Long of Bayboro; her mother and stepfather, Edward and Carol Whitfield of Hobucken; her sister and brother-in-law, Terry and Pam Hannah of Lowland; her sister, Deborah Edwards of Bayboro; nieces, Alexis Ireland, Kristen Lee, Brittany Moore Krelie and Gilean Moore; and one nephew, Coty Hannah.  A celebration of Christy's life will be held at Bryant Funeral Home at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1, 2009, with the Rev. Earl Sadler Jr. and Brother Jasper Voliva officiating. We encourage you to bring your memories and any mementos to share with the family.  Arrangements are by Bryant Funeral Home & Cremations, Alliance.  (Sun Journal [New Bern, NC] – Wednesday, February 25, 2009)
