September 28, 1999 – October 5, 2021
Kristin Boecker, age 22, of Austin, Texas passed away on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. Kristin was born September 28, 1999.
A funeral service will take place on October 16, 2021 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM at Bethany Lutheran Church & Preschool, 3701 W Slaughter Ln, Austin, TX 78749. A graveside service for Kristin will follow, from 3:30 PM to 4:00 PM at Austin Memorial Park, 2800 Hancock Dr, Austin, TX 78731.
Kristin Boecker, age 22, beloved daughter of Russell and Janice Boecker of Austin, slipped peacefully into the arms of her Heavenly Father after fighting a lifelong battle with propionic acidemia. During her life Kristin overcame many obstacles of physical and mental disability and loved life in her world to the fullest. For Kristin each day was a beautiful day and her smile brought joy to all those around her.
Kristin loved the outdoors, the country, and especially trips to the beach to feel the sea breeze on her face and to listen to the seagulls. Kristin was surrounded by many animals at home which she adored. Her labradors kept an ever watchful eye on her and were rarely out of sight. She was a big fan of Clifford, Elmo, Blues Clues, and swinging a glowing light saber. Being quite musical, Kristin enjoyed the piano, drums, the accordion and humming tunes, but Kristin’s favorite activity was watching and listening to her favorite U2 concert, the louder the better.
Kristin’s loving presence will be missed by her parents, big brother Eric Boecker of Dallas, and many friends, cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents. In lieu of flowers the family asks for memorial donations to be sent to the Propionic Acidemia Foundation, the Organic Acidemia Association or to Bethany Lutheran Church.

I remember she always liked when I massaged her arms and made them tickle. She'd always laughed and really got a kick out of it.
Kristin, you always connected with us and you will be missed.
