Kristina Diane Larkin
Kristina Tina Diane Larkin was called home by her Heavenly Father on the morning of Sunday, June 21, 2009 at the age of 36 after a two-year battle with cancer. She died with her loving husband at her bedside at Hospice at the Chaplaincy in Kennewick, WA. Tina was born August 23, 1972 in Los Angeles, CA and has lived in the Tri-Cities since 1989.
On August 8, 1992, Tina married her high school sweetheart, Stephen Steve Larkin, at the Apostolic Tabernacle United Pentecostal Church in Kennewick. They originally met on Mare Island US Naval Shipyard in CA where both their families were stationed. Since moving to the Tri-Cities, Steve and Tina have been known for opening their hearts and home to their local community.
Those who were familiar with Tina loved her for her transparency, her witty humor, her loving support, and non-judging friendship.
Kristina is survived by her husband Steve and their children Derick, Jordan, and Erica—all residing in Richland, WA. She also leaves behind her mother and step-father, Marilyn and William Seeger, father Robert Garcia, brother Joseph Garcia, half-brother Michael Bailey, and grandmother, Helen Bridger. The Larkin Family would also like to recognize their many friends that they have been blessed to laugh, cry, and celebrate with over the years.
Friends and family are encouraged to celebrate with the Larkins once again, in memory of the life of Kristina Larkin on Saturday June 27, 2009 at 3:00 PM., 1341 S.E. Louisiana Ave., Richland off of Columbia Park Trail.
