Christina Jefferds, 45, died from injuries sustained in mudslides in Oso, Washington, in March 2014.

Christina Jefferds was among the kindest of souls. "Everyone can remember how sweet and kind and generous and gentle she was," said her daughter, Natasha Huestis. "She wanted everyone to love each other and to be happy."

Jefferds, a wife, mother, grandmother and dental-office manager, was also a strong woman who raised her daughter for many years as a single mother, Huestis said. She loved gardening and even delighted in picking up garter snakes, Huestis said. And she had an adventurous side, having taken a trapeze class and gone sky diving with her husband, Seth Jefferds.

"I have a lot to learn from her," said Huestis, who also lost her 4-month-old daughter, Sanoah, who was at home with Jefferds when the slide hit.
