Kristen Ann Kirton
Kristen Ann Kirton passed away at home surrounded by her loving family on July 20, 2010 after fighting leukemia with grace and dignity. She was born on May 3, 1986 to Richard Kirton and Polly Christensen Kirton. Kristen loved life. Her favorite place in the world was home. Many days you could find her dancing and singing throughout the house. She loved to watch the Disney channel and to organizer her things. Kristen loved family vacations, camping and spending the night in a hotel. Kristen was a shining star in the lives of many. In her short 24 years she instilled upon many the gift of perspective, the lessons of fragility and taught all the true meaning of life and what was important.
Kristen was beautiful she was meek and she represents
everything that is good in the world.
Kristen loved her family and is survived by her parents, her brothers and sisters, Katy (Charlie) Anderson, Rick (Lisa) Kirton, Kamie (James) Ashton, Kimberly (David) Larsen and Ryan Kirton; her nieces and nephews, Cody, Brooke, Ellie and Claire Anderson, Jordan and Sara Kirton; her grandparents; Darlene Christensen, Richard and Lavon Kirton; many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Preceded in death by her loving grandfather, Charles Christensen.
