Throughout her school years, Kristine excelled both academically and athletically. She set a school record in shot put during her freshman year, a record she later broke again as a senior.

A Passion for First Response

From a young age, Kristine harbored an unwavering desire to help those in need.

Kristine’s passion for her work was evident in her dedication to providing exceptional care to every patient she encountered. She once remarked to her mother, “I like holding people together until they can get to a hospital.”

Unconditional Love for Her Children

She doted on them unconditionally, always putting their happiness and well-being above all else. Her love for her children was a driving force in her life, and they returned her love tenfold.

A Friend to All

Kristine possessed a warm and outgoing personality that drew people to her. She made lifelong friends wherever she went. With her infectious smile and quick wit, she could make anyone laugh. Despite her often-unconventional sense of humor, she was unafraid to be herself. When a friend or family member needed support, Kristine was always there to lend a listening ear or offer words of encouragement.

Community Involvement
