March 20, 1994 – July 16, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our daughter and sister, Kristen Dawn Kernested, on July 16, 2020 at the Health Sciences Centre.
Kristen will be deeply missed and forever remembered by her parents Grant and Karen and her brother Ryan. She will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Kristen was predeceased by her grandmother Elsie Kernested and her beloved dog Toby.
Kristen was born in Winnipeg on March 20, 1994 and attended Stanley Knowles School and Tec Voc High School. After graduating from high school she completed the Health Care Aide Program at Robertson College. Since 2014 she had worked as a home care attendant for the WRHA. She was passionate about providing care for seniors, and she carried out her job with great pride.
Kristen was a very kind, caring, thoughtful and fun-loving person who enjoyed her times with her friends and family. She loved knitting and crocheting and made many beautiful blankets she gave away as gifts. She also loved going to the family cottage.
Cremation has taken place and a private gathering will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Kristen’s memory to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
