Kristen Arebalos

February 24, 1978 - October 10, 2013

Heaven received a beautiful Angel. Kristen passed away peacefully with her family by her side. Kristen was a loving daughter, sister, niece and granddaughter who will be missed by many. She graduated from Alemany High School in Mission Hills. Her love of children led her to the Child Quest Learning Center where she worked for many years. The Dogs' Inn was lucky to have Kristen work part time where her passion for animals served her 4 legged furry friends. She had a great sense of humor and her joyful laugh was filled with a touch of feisty.

Kristen is survived by her parents, Ernie and Laura Arebalos of Montrose, CO; brother, Jonathan Arebalos of Mission Hills; grandparents, John Arebalos and Laura Yatsko; aunts and uncles, David Yatsko, Jason Arebalos (Kirsten), Tina Mashagh (David) and Helen Giambrone (Angelo); and seven special cousins, Celena, Shauntay, David, Joseph, Sarah, Hannah and Alessandro. She was preceded in death by her grandfather, John Yatsko; and grandmother, Irene Arebalos.

A celebration of Kristen's life will be held on October 19th, 11:00 a.m., at the Crippin Funeral Home Chapel, 802 East Main, Montrose, CO 81401. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Montrose Animal Protection Agency (MAPA), PO Box 2009, Montrose, CO 81402, in memory of Kristen Arebalos.
