She loved you all. In the past years she belonged to Tops and Job’s Daughters. Kristine was a caring LPN nurse at St. Joseph’s General Hospital and enjoyed her many years of service especially in Extended Care. Due to failing health and injuries she was forced to go on disability and she formally retired in June 2006. In her leisure time Kristine enjoyed her computer and crocheting. She played Pogo games on her computer and enjoyed social times with her friends. Kris collected angels and she loved her Bible. She was a true fan of Elvis and country singer Dwight Yokam. Kristine was very spiritual and family was very important to her. She gave unconditional love to her family and friends. Kris loved darts and the social time she shared at Cumberland Legion – Friday nights, her grandchildren were her life and her kids Shannon and Gary.
Mom, Nana – We know you are safe and free of pain. Until we meet again,
Rest in Peace. You were so loved, your sis, Jan.
