Beloved wife of the late John Prestogeorge.
Loving mother of Chris Prestogeorge of Churchill, Stan (Adrienne) Prestogeroge of Wilkins Twp., and Ted (Maria) Prestogeorge of Clarks Summit.
Cherished grandmother of Madeleine, Leah, and Andrew John Prestogeorge.

Born the daughter of Theodore Panagos and Maria Panagos in Greece, Christine immigrated to the United States at the age of 15, and was raised and cared for by her uncle, Sotirios Dimitriou and her aunt, Maria Dimitriou.
She met her soul mate, John, at the Presentation of Christ Greek Orthodox Church (Ypapanti) and the two shared a memorable 50-year marriage together. Christine worked for years alongside John at Prestogeorge Fine Foods in the Strip District. When the time came to raise her three sons, Christine did so proudly and cherished their time together. Christine adored her grandchildren and treasured her time as their “YiaYia”.
Christine was a devout and active member of Ypapanti, and was involved with the Philoptochos group and the YASOU club, where both John and she were known to embrace life and shared countless joys with their dear friends.
She will be deeply missed by her family, but will forever be remembered for her exuberance, faith, and loving personality.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, there will be no public visitation.
