Christine Audrey Liddy, of Rye, N.Y., passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family, on November 29, 2021.
Born on December 2, 1964, in Toronto, Ontario, Christa was the daughter of Herbert and Ursula (Paeg) Worounig. After graduating from Martingrove Collegiate in 1983, she received a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 1988, and an MBA from York University in 1992.
She began her professional life with Linde PLC in Toronto, before building a career with Royal Bank of Canada in both Toronto and Montreal. She built a life for her family in each of her hometowns: Toronto, Montreal, where she lived for 13 years, and Rye, starting in 2008. Although the rest of her family were Habs’ fans, she retained a soft spot for Leafs’ nation.
“Christa loved her life in Rye, building many lasting friendships,” said her husband, John Liddy. “She saw three daughters grow to adulthood here and flourish, loved playing tennis with both the Coveleigh and in turn Westchester Country Club teams, and involved herself with the Woman’s Club of Rye and Rye Newcomers Club. She supported Soul Ryeders as a donor in memory of her late sister-in-law, and then benefitted from their amazing support first-hand.”
In addition to John Liddy, her husband of 29 years, she is survived by her children, Emily Liddy, Nicole Liddy, and Anna Liddy, all of New York; her brother Kirk Worounig and his family of Toronto; and her mother, Ursula Worounig of Rosseau, Ontario.
The family received friends at Graham Funeral Home on December 3. Donations in Christa Liddy’s memory may be made to Soul Ryeders of the Woman’s Club of Rye.
