Kristin’s daughters were the light of her life and she was a proud and loving mother. She loved attending their dance classes, dance recitals and school activities. Kristin was an avid reader and taught her children to read and love books. She was always concerned about those less fortunate and was quick to speak up for anyone treated unfairly, whether it be a person or animal. She will also be missed by her rescue cats, Lucille and Tommy. Her family will certainly miss her funny sense of humor and her concern for others.
Friends will be received at Burnside Funeral Home, 607 S. Virginia Avenue, on Sunday from 4 – 8 p.m., where services will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 25, 2018, with Dr. C. Michael Hopkins presiding. Interment will follow in Smith Cemetery, Meadowbrook Road.
