On Wednesday, December 12, 2017, Christine Deloatche completed her earthly Journey, The Lord God did call her home to rest. Christine Deloatche {aka} “Big-Mama” was born March 12, 1958 in Norfolk, Virginia to Bennie & Melzinia Mathis also of Norfolk Virginia. She attended Lake Taylor High School.

Christine Deloatche and her family were also Hurricane Katrina victims who later relocated back to Norfolk Virginia and then to Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Her unique character earned her the name ‘BIG-MAMA” ; she would conversate with the young and the old, and "you better not rub her the wrong way", because she didn’t hold back her thoughts, and kept it real as to her response! Lol !!
