Kris was one of the first people I met when I moved here and started working at The Bon.
She became a great friend from the beginning.
She had a special bond with my daughters After working a full day, Kris would go home, make dinner and then come over and indulge my girls in letting them do her hair and paint her nails.
She was their “Aunt Kris”
I was blessed to have this fierce lady as my friend for so many years. We shared so many laughs.
She will be missed and much loved.
I just found out of Kris passing. I was Store Manager of the Bon Marche from 1986 to 1992. Kris was my HR Manager during that time Kris was an outstanding person to work with. She was funny at times, serious when necessary and caring when needed. She was a great human being and will be missed.
I am so sorry for your loss. Kris and I had some great
Times and probably cause a bit of trouble.
Kris will be missed by everyone who knew her.
My sincere condolences to Kris’s family and friends on her passing. It is with great sadness that I read Kris’s obituary as we were great friends through high school in Kapuskasing Ontario, Canada. We had great fun and shared many adventures and were so lucky to find each other on social media in later years. I am shocked to learn of her passing because we were chatting on line not long ago and she was her usual self and shared a joke with me. I know that she is home in Heaven with her husband Don and her beloved sister Lin and Sandy her brother. Rest In Peace Kris
Rest In Peace my dear friend Kris
For most of our elementary school years Kris and I were best friends. Beaulah called us giddy geese the junk eaters. We spent many unsupervised hours, days, playing and enjoying ourselves. I have many fond memories of those years and can imagine how she will be missed by family and friends. Condolences to you and yours Mike.
It is with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to my childhood friend Chris. I will forever cherish the days when we were roommates in Toronto and the great times we had both there and in Kapuskasing. I was fortunate enough to attend her wedding and spend quality time with both she, Don and Lynn. She was a wonderful friend and I believe that sometime in the future we shall reconnect with each other and all the loved ones who have passed.
My prayers and good wishes to all who loved Chris. The world will not be the same without her in it.
I didn’t know Kristine growing up in Kap but my condolences to you and your family/ May your sister rest in peace and your memories of her be with you forever.
