Krista was kind and loving and was a joy to know. She had a fun spirited attitude and always looked on the brighter side of life. She graduated from Comstock High School, Class of 2006. She remained in Southwest Michigan. She was a loyal UofM fan and enjoyed spending Saturdays at The Big House! She loved sunshine and beaches and spent many days on the shores of South Haven.
