Georgette, Doug and family; your courage, faith, and love in being with Kris through many years of trial are what made her an inspirational woman to others. Kris will continue to be a blessing to the many she touched. Isaiah 55: So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; It shall not return to me void, but shall do my will, achieving the end for which I sent it.
Ensign Family, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Kris. We went to ES, JR High and HS together. We lived in the same neighborhood for a decade. Kris was a great athlete but a better person. I cannot recall ever hearing her say 1 negative thing about anyone. It was an honor to be inducted into the Clay HS Hall of Fame with her on that night in 1998. She will be missed.
Kris was a wonderful woman she will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Prayers to the whole family.
Our thoughts and prayers to the whole Ensign family. Cancer is never fun.
We live right behind the Ensign family in the Toledo area.

Doug, Georgette and family, we are saddened to hear the news of Kris, our prayers are with you and the family. Even though years and miles have been put between us - I know I speak for the rest of the family when I say you always will be our neighbors in thought and prayer. John Fletcher II family
My sincere condolences to the Ensign family. You know that Kris is now at peace with God. She was a very special person and be truly missed.
May she rest in peace ......... God said we should be happy when our love ones is gone but we are human and we can't help it but cry until there isn't no more tear left. God meant that when they are gone, they are free from this painful world and is free even their soul. I hope God is with her family and helping them deal with this painful situation.
I send my sincere condolences to the Ensign family. I have fond memories growing up with Kris. Her competitive spirit lives on.
Dear Georgette, Doug, and Family,

We are so sorry for your loss, Kris was such an inspiration...you all are in our thoughts and prayers. Our heart aches.
To the entire Ensign family and extended family. There are no words right now to say to make this pain go away. I wish I could help ease the sadness and hurt you all feel. I do know this, anyone that was blessed to have known Kris is a better person because of her. I, 100% know this to be true for me. One of our last conversations was about Brady and how she was proud of me being such a good Mom. Although she said I would be better if I got him to like OSU instead of ND....Kris taught me the defintion of courage and bravery. Her name should be by those words in the dictionary as of now!!! I have never met anyone stronger than Kris and pretty sure I never will. I am truly blessed for the time I had with her and the memories I hold very dear to my heart. I dedicate the next chapter of my life to Kris and to becoming a more compassionate Mom, friend and family member. I plan to focus on the little things in life and to surround myself with positive energy only. Kris left behind many communities that she touched incredibly. I can only imagine how proud you all are. May God give you all the strength to get through the next few days. I love you all very much!!!
Sending lots of love and prayers
god bless you and your family love the students from grovepor tmadison high
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

Your many friends at Unity pray the love of God enfolds you and your family during this journey through grief.
We send you thoughts of comfort.

Doug & Georgette: It was with a deep heart as I read about Kris's passing this morning on line in the Blade. Our memories of her will be lasting of the deeds she accomplished in a short lifetime. I'll always remember her athletic accomplishments and her coaching of so many. It was a pleasure watching her inducted into the Clay High Athletic Hall of Fame with Red - such a proud day for all of us. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
Thank you for blessing my life and being support for my wife as we began this long, hard walk. I will never, ever forget that you took time to visit me during my treatment while you yourself had a battle going on. Your fight will go on with me and you will be the first I remember for each dollar I raise, each hope I inspire. God Bless.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Kris and the family. God bless each of you and may you find comfort in knowing Kris is in his loving embrace and she is no longer suffering.

To the Ensign family..... You all have my condolences. I didn't personally know Kris but through her brother Ward we knew her & she has touched all of our lives. She was a BRAVE young woman with lots of fight in her. Now she has become an ENSIGN ANGEL WATCHING OVER US ALL!!!
My prayers for the entire Ensign Family. I knew Kris through throughout jr. and senior high school. She was always kind to everyone and it never mattered the circumstances. She was a truly caring and sweet person and she will be missed by everyone who knew her. May the Lord bless and keep her now.
My daughter is the 9th Grade. Ms. Ensign was not even her teacher and she has touched Nesa's life deeply. You don't find people on this earth that earned their wings prior to heaven....Ms. Ensign did!!! May God be with all that loved her!!

Kris was a wonderful neighbor!! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family and friends. Kris will always be in our hearts, and never be forgotten!
Our condolences to your family and the Groveport Madison school kids who will miss such an inspiration. She touched many lives, you can be assured she will not be forgotten, for her kids at school loved her dearly. You saw that last night at the candle light vigil.
You're an inspiration to many, Kris. May peace come to family and friends who will miss you greatly!
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Always have heard the kindest words about Ms. Ensign.
I did not have the honor of knowing her on a personal level, but I saw first hand the impact she had on so many of my fellow students as well as staff members. I have a special place in my heart for people affected by cancer. She was such a fighter, and she will never be forgotten. I am proud of our community for how they have rallied both socially and emotionally behind the Mission Ensign cause. While today is a sad day, it is certainly a day to be proud of being a cruiser. My thoughts and prayers are with Chris's family and friends. May she rest in peace.
What a blessing to so many people. Not many of us could live in a lifetime and complete all Kris did in her short lifespan. May God send His strength, love and peace to each of the members of her loving family! Treasure all your precious memories and go on in love by living Kris's example. Prayers and Love to all of you
She had a heart of gold and the soul of a courageous fighter! I am blessed and lucky to call her my friend! I love you!
My sincerest condolences to the family. Kris always had a kind words to share with the Libbey students, and always willing to help out where she could. I appreciated her friendship. She will be missed. To the family hold on to the beautiful memories and times you shared and know her spirit will always be there in all our hearts. Ward what a wonderful brother. She will be part of the Ram Nation always. I pray for strength for the family.
Kris was an incredible person and will continue to inspire all of us through the coming years. God Bless you all and I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around you and carry your family through this. Well done Kris, RIP my friend.
Kris was the nicest person anyone could ever meet. She had such a giving and true heart. Her imprint on the lives of those around her will last lifetimes. We will all miss her.
Mrs. Ensign is by far the best teacher that I never actually had as a teacher. She was always positive and had such a kind heart. My prayers go to her family and friends. She's going to a much better place :)
