Kristi Michelle Huerter Herring, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and role model to many passed away from this life on April 17, 2015, in The Woodlands, Texas, at the age of 41.

Kristi, the daughter of Marcheta "Cheta" Gilchrist Huerter and Lawrence W. Huerter, was born on the 21st of August 1973, in Omaha, Nebraska. Kristi grew up in Spring, Texas and graduated with honors from McCullough High School in The Woodlands, Texas in 1991 where she excelled both academically and as a member of the McCullough Highsteppers. Kristi was selected as an officer her junior year and went on to lead the Highsteppers in her senior year as Major. After High School, Kristi attended Louisiana State University and graduated in 1995 with honors, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in both English and Spanish.

Following her mother's footsteps, Kristi taught for several years at York Junior High School, but continued to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer and was later accepted into South Texas College of Law where she graduated with a Doctor of Jurisprudence in 2002 and was licensed in the state of Texas. Kristi immediately began practicing law at Feldman & Rogers, L.L.P in Houston. In 2008 Kristi transferred to Insperity-Houston's Human Resource Consulting where she continued to practice law and demonstrated to all her dedication to providing sound legal advice and a passion to serve others. It was this passion to serve that earned Kristi the 2014 Innes Mackillop Outstanding Service Award.

What all will remember and truly what made Kristi great was never settling for anything less than her best -less than excellence. Kristi's pursuit of excellence is what she demanded and expected of herself and is what she continuously delivered in all aspects of her life both professionally and personally. Her first love will forever be her family and friends whose thumb print on all of us...have in many ways made us all better. Her 2nd love was dancing and truly was where Kristi worked tirelessly growing up on her form, technique and precision in the pursuit of excellence. It was this pursuit of excellence that introduced Kristi into her 3rd love- the love of running. Kristi found solace pounding the pavement logging in thousand of miles all over The Woodlands with friends as they prepared time and time again for the Houston Marathon. Finally, her pursuit of excellence motivated her daily, while facing incredible adversity, to give everyone she knew, friend or not, her very best as a person...her love. And it will be her love of people that we will all remember and forever miss in our lives.

Kristi's survivors include: her husband of 14 years, Christopher Herring of The Woodlands, Texas; her son, Tristan; her daughter Skylar Lou; her father, Larry Huerter, of The Woodlands, Texas; her brother Scott and his wife Janin and children (Brock, Colby, and Dayne), of Katy, Texas; her brother, Colonel Michail Sean Huerter and children (Zachary and Quincey), of Fort Benning, Georgia; her in laws Wayne and Diane Herring, Brother and Sister-in law, Daryl and Dawn Herring, and Brother and Sister-in law Cindy and George Eberly; and many nieces and nephews.

"One day she finally grasped that unexpected things were always going to happen in life. And with that, she realized the only control she had was how she chose to handle them. So, she made the decision to survive using courage, humor and grace. She was the Queen of her own life and the choice was hers."—Kathy Kenny
