They would attend Flea Markets, enjoyed crafts and live entertainment. Kris opened her heart to heart to many people, and was a kind and caring woman. Kris cherished her children, loved her mother, sisters, brother and life long friend Kelly Pettis (Waltenberg). And always by her side was her faithful cocker spaniel, Andy. Welcomed in heaven by her father Richard (Dick) Snow, step parent Russel Kelly, grandparents, Dorothy Snow, Jennie (Nan) Kangas, and Axel Kangas.
