Kristen Marie Ellers, formerly of Eagle River, Alaska, died on March 15, 2016, following a courageous three-year battle with triple negative breast cancer. Kristen graduated from Chugiak High in 1995. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Linfield College in sports medicine and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University. Kristen was a physical therapist in the Tucson, Ariz., area for the past 13 years. Kristen traveled through her cancer journey with strength, dignity and grace. She was very caring of others and an inspiration to many. She refused to let the disease take her spirit and faith. Kristen loved life and loved to travel. Her travels took her both far and near, including volunteer work in medical clinics in Haiti. Kristen is survived by her mother and sister, Sherry and Erika of Eagle River, Alaska; and father, Robert (Janece) of Marana, Ariz. Donations can be made to the in memory of Kristen.
