“Kristin loved all with a smile and a laugh. She enjoyed talks with her big sister, Ashley, and her nephew, Austin. She also loved fishing on the Kenai in the summer and ice fishing in the winter with her Dad, sister, Kelsey, and friends, Zac, Beth and Jeff. Kristin enjoyed lots of laughs with Carly, Sarah and Leesha and so many more we have yet to meet. Kristin was in band and enjoyed her private clarinet lessons with Mr. Schmidt. What was important to her was sharing her faith in Jesus Christ her Lord and Savior,” her family said.
