Kristin Emily Hughes was born April 22, 1989 in Bountiful, Utah. She had a fighting spirit that allowed her to overcome her prematurity at birth.
She returned to her Heavenly Father on January 2, 2008.
Kristin loved being a big sister. Her loving spirit was an example to us all.
Kristin was always willing to help others, contributing her hair many times to “Locks of Love”.
In June, 2007, Kristin graduated from Woods Cross High School. Because of her love of animals (especially dogs), she started studying at the University of Utah, intending to become a veterinarian.
Kristin loved to make people laugh. Her humor allowed us to laugh at each other and at ourselves. She was shining light to us all.
