Kristin was employed for many years as a social worker. Kristin had a lifelong passion for music and in her youth sang often, much to the delight of her family. She loved to spend time reading and her servant’s heart led her to help others both at her job and in her social life whenever called upon.
First and foremost, Kristin was a dedicated and loving mom to her two sons. She treasured her boys and embraced the moments she had with them. Her life was a living example for them to follow, and she will be greatly missed.
