Kristen Marie Gould 1982 – 2019 Biddeford – Our beautiful daughter, Kristen Marie Gould, 37, died August 27, 2019 after a long, difficult battle with the horrible disease we call “addiction.”

Kristen was born on February 22, 1982 in Bangor the daughter of Marianne (McNally) and George N. Gould Jr. Kristen was a “gem” from day one with big brown eyes, gorgeous olive skin, and cherry lips. The nurses could not get over her natural beauty.

Kristen attended Windham schools graduating in 2000. She was an excellent student, enjoyed cheerleading, and was very gifted in drawing and all the arts. She was always self-taught and enjoyed helping her little sisters with their homework and art projects.

Kristen was a loving caring person who always worked hard at her jobs. She had recently been making beautiful beaded bracelets, which many of us will cherish forever. She was hoping to start a small business selling her jewelry. Kristen loved her entire family and cherished all the vacations to Disneyworld with her parents and sisters. She especially loved her sisters!

Kristen was predeceased by her paternal grandfather, George N Gould Sr. she is survived by her mother and her loving husband, Marianne (McNally) and Walter Purda of Yarmouth, her father George N. Gould Jr. of Treasure Island, FL, two younger sisters Jennafer Gould of Treasure Island, FL.

I'll always remember Kristen for the bubbly full of life young lady we met when we moved to Windemere. She was full of life and seemed to always be so happy with that brilliant smile of hers. In recent years, thanks to Facebook, Kristen and I had communicated a few times and she truly seemed to be doing so well and dedicated to improving her life. It makes me so sad to think that in recent months, we hadn't chatted...I so wish I could have offered more encouragement. My heart is truly broken for her family and close friends. I'll never forget Kristen and will always keep you all in my prayers.

Oh I loved this girl. I can remember when the girls would visit Nanee' and do fashion shows to all if us that were there. Such silly girls.
That's one memory that is so vivid in my mind. Love you so much Kristen and hope you are finally at peace that you were searching for.
