Kris recently retired and loved spending winters in Florida with her husband, where they enjoyed visits with family and many friends. She never missed a sporting event featuring her children (and rarely missed a game for nephews and nieces). She fulfilled her lifelong dream of attending a University of Notre Dame football game with her brothers, sister, nieces, and nephews. Kris loved the beach, especially the many family vacations at Ocean City, Md., each creating lasting memories. She also loved Christmas and quietly and without fanfare found perfect and, often times, "over the top" presents for everyone. Kris loved to dance with her husband, play the slots. and have a good time with friends. Above all, Kris loved her family. She loved family gatherings with packed houses, great stories. and endless laughs. Kris was a truly selfless human being who always put other's interests ahead of her own. She was, for those who knew and loved her, the perfect daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend.
