Kristine Marie Sargent (nee Mrozek), age 54, passed away on Friday, October 16, 2020 with her loving family by her side.
Kristine is survived by her daughter, Samantha Jo Sargent; mother, Shirley A. Day; longtime friend, Sheila Morgan; and many extended family and friends that will miss her dearly.
Preceded in death by her father, Denis R. Mrozek; step-father, Paul R. Day; grandparents, Frank and Quintilla Ketz.
Kris’ zest for life was apparent to anyone who met or knew her, from her blinged out outfits to her phone full of pictures and experiences; there was no doubt that she loved life and lived life to the fullest. The only thing Kris loved more was her daughter, Samantha. Spending time with Sam and her mom gave her the most joy.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the family or the American Lung Association would be appreciated.
