Kristin E. Olson died peacefully at her home in Port Orchard Aug. 15 at the age of 71. Born Feb. 13, 1950, to parents C.T. and Delores Olson, Kristin grew up in California and earned her bachelor’s degree before relocating to Washington.
She spent 37 years as a telecommunications technician for the company currently known as CenturyLink. Her loving heart brought many close friends into Kristin’s life. A dedicated volunteer driver for The Mustard Seed Project, Kristin continued driving people as far away as Seattle for appointments with medical specialists despite the ongoing pandemic.
Kristin was preceded in death by her parents, as well as her sister Karen Forys. She is survived by her son Donovan. A private gathering in Kristin’s honor will be held in the fall.
