So sorry to hear of Kristi’s passing. My goodness, I haven’t seen her in years. I see she had 23 years with Wells Fargo. Amazing That’s what happens to our friendships we no longer see in our lifetime We all put our time into work and family and not much time for all our small town friends to keep up with one another. God Bless you Kristi and family. She is with you everyday in your hearts ❤️

I worked with Kristi on several occasions. She was a great person, knowledgeable and I enjoyed our interaction. I have been on medical leave almost a year so I was unaware she was gone until now. Many prayers and blessings to her family.

I am so sorry to hear of Kristi's passing. I worked with her 15 years ago at WF. I never forgot her, even after leaving Wells, and I never will. She was truly one of a kind.

What a huge loss to us all. She was such a giving soul. She was so much help to our family when Dad was in the hospital. Mom depended on her for so much. Jimmy and Kristi was always there for them. Donna and I want to send love to Jimmy and the entire family during this trying time. GOD has a plan for us all, and He needed her to be with Him. God bless you and help to get you through this time of mourning. You will be together again. Please let me know if we can do anything to help you .

Kristi was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She took me under her wing at work and taught me all she knew and help me grow as a person and I will never forget her unselfish kindness. She was kind and nice to anyone she met and was just a beautiful person. My sincerest condolences to her family.

Kristi was everything you could want from a manager and a peer - she was my first mentor and a dear friend that I could always talk to and have an honest conversation. She took a chance on me years ago, and I wouldn't be anywhere near the person I am today without her guiding hand. You will truly be missed every day.

I so enjoyed our calls with Kristi, she was feisty but also knew when to joke around to lighten the mood. she was always striving for the solution to every title problem. I am so sorry to hear she passed . I know that she fought as much as she could, she was a fighter. God Rest her soul. She has moved on to her next title problem.
Sour with the Angels my friend. God Bless.

I worked with Kristi at WF, mostly remotely as I managed another "sister" department. She was always able to provide me with direction, guidance as well as a good laugh. I am sorry for her passing and I wish her family peace.

Kristi was an amazing woman. She looked out for those she worked with. She was a teacher, mentor, friend but most of all she was family. She looked out for us like a mother hawk. She was one of the strongest woman I knew. She meant so much to myself and my daughter. Jimmy, she talked about you and the boys all the time. She loved you and your boys and the grandbabies so much!! All of my heart my love and my prayers go out to your family. She is so loved!!!!

I am deeply saddened by the news of Kristi's passing. Our friendship began as she was a supervisor of mine at Wells Fargo. Kristi and i became quite close when we worked together, so close that I had begun to call her my "work mama" Kristi was not only a boss and friend but she had that knack of being so nurturing that I gravitated towards her for advice and as a confidant. I feel like I know her family even though I never actually met them. Hearing the stories of Jimmy and his big boy toys, the cats and of course her sons and their families. I'm saddened she's no longer on earth with her family but happy that she is with her daddy. Rest in Pease beautiful angel. Love always, Delta Kuhn

Losing a family member is always hard, but losing a sister is even harder. A sister is a confidant and a sounding board. We will miss our phone calls to each other usually on Sunday morning while we drank coffee with each other miles apart. We will miss you so much but we will all be together again when we too are called home.

My heart just breaks to hear this news. Kristi was a co-worker and we worked together for quite a few years. She always called me her administrative assistant when she needed things and I was always happy to help. She had a smile that glowed and a heart of gold. I will miss her dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
