Her brother remembers having breakfast on the beach and sharing many laughs. She enjoyed shopping with friends in her teens and was a loyal friend to many; with many of those friendships that lasted a lifetime.
Kristen always wanted to be a mother and her children are evident of her success. She was a mother to cats as well, Tinker, Kitty, and “Big” Lu; who she loved dearly, She is remembered by her children to be an incredible mother who would put their needs even above her own.

As an avid animal lover her whole life she’s had many animals. She loved having fun and loved music. She would frequent bunkers in Leesburg on Mondays and sing karaoke with her friends.
Her kids reminisce about all the times their mother played kick ball with them as children and every laugh that was shared. Kristen loved her tattoos and would always be excited getting a new one. Some noteable tattoos: a four leaf clover on her neck, curious George on her ankle for her daughter, and a life tree on her back shoulder. Her love for her children and tattoos were captured in a tattoo on her arm of her children’s name in their consecutive order of birth.
