Hable (nee Kassebohm) (the Late Charles); the dear sister of Taylor Buchhlolz (Ashley) and Tamara Pizagno (Ryan) and the late Michelle Buchholz. Also survived by former husband, Chris Barmes, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Kristin was a devoted mother to her three children, Brian, Eric and Courtney, treasuring the time spent with each of them individually and as a family. She was a beautiful, compassionate, loving soul whose smile could light up any room, taking delight in making others happy. Kristin had an artistic touch with flowers and photography, and enjoyed helping others make things more beautiful. She had a deep love for all animals, but especially for her dogs and cats, enjoying hikes with her dog, especially around or near any body of water. She was a music lover and found great joy in live music and concerts. Kristin enjoyed sports, especially when watching her brother, Taylor, pitch, as well as her three children in their athletic pursuits. She was a dedicated paramedic, serving the area around Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, caring for her patients compassionately. Kristin held a strong belief in doing random acts of kindness for others, and she would want people to continue her legacy by doing the same.
