Share Krista's story with others:
God put me here on Earth to make people laugh and smile...
Krista was 54 when she went to be with the Lord! She was born in Lakewood, Colorado. Krista always said, “God put me here on Earth to make people laugh and smile!” Anyone who knew Krista knew she could make any stranger a friend. She had many artistic talents. She was commissioned to custom paint a steel beam from the World Trade Center that was left on 9/11. The Memorial Beam is at the Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Krista had a vision to turn trash into treasure. She built furniture, staged many houses, and helped all her friends and relatives fix up their houses. She refinished her son Brian’s apartment and it looks like an outstanding new place.
She was a private investigator, spent many years as a paralegal and was in law enforcement.
Krista was ranked No. 1 in the state of Colorado for being the Best Girls Fast Pitch Pitcher during her younger days.
Krista was an excellent motorcycle rider. She was in her element and at peace when she rode with her husband, George.
Krista has helped many people by being an organ donor. I am proud to have had the privilege to know and love Krista!
