Slain Hostage in CA Hailed from Massachusetts

One of three women killed Friday at a veteran’s center in Yountville, California grew up in Massachusetts.

Christine Loeber, 48, and two others from the center were taken hostage by a former Army soldier who had recently been told to leave the facility, The Pathway Home. Albert Wong held the three hostage for several hours before fatally shooting them and then himself. Loeber was the executive director of the facility as well as a social worker.

Loeber lived in Easton and graduated in 1987 from Oliver Ames High School in North Easton. She also earned a bachelor’s degree in communication in 1991 from the University of New Hampshire and earned her master’s degree in social work from Boston College.
