    I can’t remember a time when I spoke with Kristen, that she wasn’t smiling. She had a beautiful knack of making everyone around her feel happy. I will miss you ice skating on our pond, cutting down your Christmas tree here with us Kristen, I will make sure Felicity hears what a wonderful mother you were to her, and how fought so hard to stay here. We will miss you tremendously. My condolences to her immediate family, and Stu, Alexis and Jacob. xo

    My deepest condolences to Kristens family. I worked with Kristen at Smcdsb for a few years when she was an ICT tech. When you work with someone daily, they become family. Kristen was very hardworking and so smart. Her determination to solve IT issues left a lasting impression. That determination and spirit was evident in how she lived her life, never letting anything get her down, and finding solutions to any problem thrown her way. And always with a smile. I will miss her.
