She is survived by a son, (Craig), sister, (Beverly), grandchildren, (Jordan, Tyler, Jonathan, and Zachary); four great grandchildren (Kimberlynn, Kenna, Killian, and Kenzleigh), and only cousin, (Mary Lou), and many friends including Jackie and Sheree.
Kristine was a loyal and devoted wife, a loving sister and mother, and kind and steadfast friend. Above all she was an adoring and beloved grandmother and great-grandmother. Kristine celebrated a strong faith in Christ and expressed it openly. She was passionate about animals and nature. She was a loving and caring friend, and her generosity of heart were unparalleled. She was one of the most selfless women we’ve ever known. Kristine spent a lifetime raising children and was the best parent anyone could ask for. Her kind and gentle spirit will be dearly missed by all who knew her. In respect of her wishes, no funeral service will be held. The family will privately celebrate her memory, Sunday August 15.
