Christine K. Salomon, 85, formerly of Cumberland, RI, died peacefully on August 17, 2019, at her daughter’s home in Camden, ME, surrounded by her family. She is survived by her beloved husband of 62 years, Erich W. Salomon; her son, Richard E. Salomon Sr., of Cumberland, RI; her daughter, Pamela J. Benner, and her husband, Richard W. Benner, of Camden, ME; her grandson, Richard E. Salomon Jr., of Providence, RI; her granddaughter, Ashly L. Salomon, of Fern Park, FL; her niece, Monika Forstner, and nephew, Rudolf Jakob, both of Germany.
Born in Bamberg, Germany, on August 29, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Georg and Margarete (Wellein) Doering. She was predeceased by her brother, Rudolf Doering, and her sisters Elisabeth Doering and Luise Jakob, all of Germany.
Christine “Christel” Salomon emigrated to the United States in 1951 at the age of 17. She improved her English at night school and worked as a nanny in Providence. As a new immigrant, Christine was drawn to German Dramatic Society (now the German American Cultural Society of Rhode Island) events, where she met Erich at a masquerade ball.
After devoting many years to her family, she volunteered as a physical therapy aide at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, MA, and was later employed there for more than 30 years as a PT aide until she retired in her 70s. Christine loved her work.
Both outgoing and empathetic, Christine reached out to strangers and friends alike with warmth and enthusiasm.
One of her lifelong interests was astrology, and she was skilled at determining, and remembering, the astrological signs of every friend and many acquaintances. Among her favorite pastimes were stargazing, reading, going for walks with friends, and being outdoors, especially admiring the flower gardens Erich planted over the years. She loved music and ballroom dancing, and often sang German Lieder as she went about her day. She was an excellent cook and baker, and her family and friends looked forward in particular to her specialties: German Christmas cookies, fall apple and plum tarts, potato salad—year-round—and Sauerbraten and Beef Rouladen. She eagerly shared her recipes.
After moving to Maine with Erich in early 2018, she enjoyed living at Bartlett Woods, a retirement community in Rockland, where she quickly made friends and enjoyed new opportunities to be creative, from coloring to flower arranging to making lovely crafts.
Auf Wiedersehen to our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, friend.
