Christin Marie Gaston, 52, of California, MD passed away suddenly on August 2, 2017. Christin was born on November 16, 1964 in Louisville, Kentucky to the late Gerald Thurston Campbell and Joan Maris Campbell. Christin enjoyed traveling, spending time with friends and family, especially her grandson Paxton, going to the teacher store and anything Ohio State. She could often be heard saying "Go Buckeyes!"
Christin moved to Chillicothe, OH in the 1st grade and attended St. Peter's Elementary School. In the fourth grade she moved across the street from her future husband and became best friends from that point forward. Christin graduated from Bishop Flaget High School in Chillicothe. She then continued her education at The Ohio State University; graduating in 1986 with a degree in Education. She married the love of her life, James (Jim) Gaston on June 14th, 1986.
Being a Navy wife took her around the globe living in Spain, Maryland, Guam, Washington State and finally settling back in Maryland. In each assignment, Christin found joy in teaching. In 2004 she began teaching First Grade at Father Andrew White SJ School which she affectionately referred to as "her home away from home". As a devout Catholic, she was passionate to spread God's word to her First Graders. She often said "The First Grade world is an awesome place to be!"
Christin is survived by her husband, James Daniel Gaston, daughter, Elizabeth Hayden and her husband Corey of Hollywood, MD, son, Maxwell Gaston and his girlfriend, Julie Verbos of California, MD, sister, Kimberly Johnson of Chillicothe, OH, and her grandson, Paxton. She is also survived by her New Jersey and Kentucky cousins which she enjoyed a special bond with. Whenever they were around a rumble of laughter was always present.
