Kristen graduated from Bath High School in 1988 and was a proud graduate of The Ohio State University. She loved spending time with her children and granddaughter. She was an avid make-it-from-scratch cook, had a love of reading and always enjoyed a chilly, sunny morning on her fiancés patio. She is the youngest of her siblings and was adored as ‘their baby’. She was incredibly proud of her children and cherished being her granddaughter’s ‘Gammie’. Kristen lit up every room she walked into, never knowing a stranger. With an infectious smile, warm laugh and sparkling eyes, she touched the hearts of every person she met.
