Kristy called the apartment complex in Seneca known as Belvedere Commons her home. She was a kind and compassionate person who never met a stranger in her life. She has a kind heart and was constantly interested in finding out more about other people. Kristy found great satisfaction in showing concern for the people in her life and concentrating on the ways in which she could be a blessing to others. She had been attending Clemson United Methodist Church for a significant amount of time.
Cooking, crafts, gardening, and helping her father out on the family farm were all activities that Kristy enjoyed doing.
