Kristin Terese Brand, 72, passed away Tuesday, December 22, 2020, in Shoreline, Washington. Kristin was born in Cedar Falls, Iowa on July 27th, 1948.

Kristin graduated from Kubasaki American High School in Okinawa, Japan in 1966. She studied Macroeconomics at the University of Texas. During her working career, she was an elementary school secretary, computer teacher, and purchasing agent.

Our mom, grandma, sister, and friend, was forever a hard worker, in both her professional and personal life. She took pride in whatever she did. She was a loving, caring, and supportive mother. Kristin enjoyed coaching her children's many sports activities and afterschool projects.

Her greatest joy was being a grandmother to Trey Hobbs, and Maya, and Isla Brand, she loved spoiling her grandchildren. After retiring Kristin was an avid computer gamer, loved traveling, a gardener of indoor plants and summer vegetables, and appreciated a good glass of chardonnay. She took pride in her vegetable gardens and enjoyed the spring season when she could get out and enjoy planting and growing beautiful beds to enjoy during the summer months. She was known to grow enough vegetables to share with all her friends and family.

Kristin will be forever remembered as a beautiful mother, grandmother, sister, gracious friend, and her overflowing love of life. She was very loved and will be dearly missed.

The family is planning a private memorial that will be held at a later date.
