Kristin Hurlburt with children Sylvia and Larry.

In action and word, Kristin Hurlburt touched many.

She brought a smile to everyone she met, whether working in the Coupeville High School lunchroom, cruising the sidelines at a Wolf sporting event, or engaging in conversation when she ran into you out in the “real world.”

As I documented the athletic and academic success of her children, Larry and Sylvia, their mom was a ray of sunshine, a truly caring woman in every way.

Cancer claimed her physical body, but her spirit never waned.

Kristin’s beautiful soul remained untouched through her darkest hours, and as her beloved granddaughter grows up, she will be blessed to hear stories about Nanna K and the joy she brought into this world.

As the family prepares for a Celebration of Life —  Celebrate the life of an amazing woman | Coupeville Sports — it asks that people make donations to support the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation, in lieu of sending flowers.

“While mom loved flowers, she loved animals even more,” Sylvia Hurlburt said. “Thank you all so much for your love during this time.”


To donate by mail, send checks to: 

PO Box 1108
Coupeville, WA 98239

**Write “in memory of Kristin Hurlburt” on the memo line.


To donate online, pop over to:

WAIF | Helping Whidbey Island Pets and Their People (waifanimals.org)

**There is an option to include a loved one’s name on the donation form.

A celebration of life has been set for beloved Wolf mom Kristin Hurlburt.

It will be Saturday, July 24, with an 11 AM service at Sunnyside Cemetery in Coupeville, followed by a noon reception at Living Hope Foursquare Church.

Sunnyside is at 90 Cemetery Road, just off State Route 20, while Living Hope is just down the road at 105 NW Broadway.

Kristin, who worked for the Coupeville School District for many years, was among the most-enthusiastic, and caring, of local parents.

She and husband Troy were always there as son Larry and daughter Sylvia competed in events as diverse as track and field, cheerleading, and dance.

While her battle with cancer ended too soon, Kristin remains with us, her graceful smile always in our memories.

Even when she was gently needling me about not making it to enough track meets in person, she did it with such grace and love.

A truly amazing woman, and one of my personal favorites.
