Hi Ron, so sorry to hear about Kris. Marcus
Sending my sincerest condolences. Kris was kind, smart and I enjoyed her company very much.
Dear Ron and family:
I worked with Kris at Rick Fruehauf’s before NuEnergy. She was a wonderful person and a great worker! She will be greatly missed! My prayers are with you all🙏.
So sorry for your loss, Ron and family. Hard to believe she is gone. We worked together for ten years at NuEnergy and even shared an office for some of those years. We always knew how to make each other laugh. We always joked because I shared the exact same birthday as her youngest daughter that maybe we got switched at birth and I was actually hers. I will always remember the fun we had on the Mackinac Island trips, the trips to the DAC Christmas parties and casino, the hard work we all put in for Relay For Life, and the 5k Color Tour Fundraiser for TACKLE. RIP Kris, I will always remember your laugh and smile for years to come.
Dear Hartmann family, I knew Kris through Girl Scouts and saw her in November as she dropped off toys for Toys for Tots. Kris was a super Girl Scout leader, teaching the girls life skills. She had a great sense of humor. Kris will be remembered fondly as a Girl Scout Sister.
