Obituary for Dr. Christine Jean Peat

Dr. Christine Peat

“To thine own self be true” are the words that Christine lived by without compromise.

Christine passed away at home on Thursday, November 12, 2020 after battling Type 1 diabetes for 57 years. Graduating from medical school is an accomplishment but to do it with a chronic disease is a testament of Christine’s strength and will power. On graduating she was determined that the patients she saw in her practice would get her undivided attention with the question after each appointment was “is there anything else I can help you with today”. Christine would always try to go the extra yard for everyone she saw.

Christine’s career started with the Spence Clinic but when her husband, Fraser, was transferred to Vancouver they packed up and she took a position at the Downtown East Side Clinic (skid row) which was truly a challenge as she never saw a well patient. Christine treated each patient she saw with respect and afforded them quality care which she felt they deserved. Christine also did locums at the Burnaby Women’s Penitentiary.

When they moved back to Thunder Bay, Christine was the first physician at the Ogden East End Health Centre. She then moved on to the Spence Clinic and after a stroke she finished her career at the Lakehead Psychiatric Hospital.

Christine’s patients always came first and she would go to no ends to help them with their problems. She did not care where they came from or who they were. Their care and wellbeing was the only thing that mattered.

Christine also found time to play racquetball (where she met her husband), hiking in the mountains of B.C., skiing, inline skating marathons, white water rafting and jogging. Her favourite holiday was Niagara on the Lake but also visited many cities all over North America.

Christine is survived by her husband of 35 years Fraser Coull and her stepdaughter (daughter) Ashleigh (Nathan). Her sisters Elizabeth (Alan) and Alison. Predeceased by her parents Jean and Jeff Peat, sister Barb and brother Jeffrey.

We have been very grateful over the years for the care shown to Christine by Drs. Jeremy Mozzon, S.T.A. Malik, Azadeh Mofid and Riley.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date. If friends so wish a memorial donation to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, 235 Yorkland Blvd., Suite 600, Toronto, ON M2J 4Y8 would be appreciated. Online condolences may be made at

I was saddened to hear of Christine’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with her at the LPH and knowing her outside of work. She was a kind and caring doctor and a warm, respectful human being. She had a good sense of humour and a great appreciation for life. I had the pleasure of meeting her husband and knew that she loved him dearly, as he did her. My condolences go out to Fraser and the rest of her family. I am hopeful that they take comfort in knowing that she is in a better place with only peace, sunshine and happiness.

All my love, thoughts and prayers

I remember Christie from elementary school, at Pine Street School. I remember when she was diagnosed with diabetes and how she strove to be the same as all the rest of us. We lost contact in high school, but I often thought of her especially after my own diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes 35 years ago. I always admired Christie, a great friend as a children, and, I'm sure, one of the best doctors Thunder Bay ever had. To her husband and family, my deepest sympathies. She was indeed a very special person. Sincerely, Shirley A (Gunderson) Dunk

The world has lost one of its finest. Christine was definitely in the right profession as she truly cared for people, all people. Her empathy and sense of humor endless. She never passed judgement on anyone and her beautiful smile spoke of the love she had in her heart.
