Kristine R. Nolan


           Kristine Renee’ Nolan, born in Lansdale Pennsylvania, died at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Reading, PA at the age of 56 on June 12,2023.  She wassurrounded by loved ones following a long battle with colon cancer. Kristine was preceded in death by her mother, Patricia Marie Nolan (Young), and survived by her father James M. Nolan (Janice) (Perkiomenville, PA), sisters: Kimberly Aish (Atlanta, GA), Dana Ryman (Daniel) (Rapid City, SD); Bonnie McAlister (Greg) (Little Rock, AR); her nieces and nephews: Nicole Baldwin (Anthony), Amanda Cullison (James), Donte’ Burns(Jasmine) and great nieces and nephews:  Lia Baldwin, Michael Baldwin,  Kaiden Burns, Sage Burns, Tucker Cullison and Ellis Cullison; as well as many other extended family members and her “best girlfriend Dana Friend.”

          Kristine spent her life enjoying her great love of collecting rocks, stuffed animals and pocket books, as well as drawing and listening to music.  She took great pride in and dearly loved her family and friends.  Her kind nature and loving spirit was felt by all that took the time to know and understand her.  Her love of life was demonstrated by her unfathomable strength and resilience.  Kristine battled lifelong challenges, physically and mentally; always with a kind spirit, a smile and saying “I’m doing good” no matter how severe the physical and/or emotional pain.  She never complained – plowing through whatever the challenge as if it was just another day.  She astounded healthcare workers and clergy repeatedly, never asking “why me”, giving in or giving up. She was truly a beautiful person and will be forever missed.

          A private service with immediate family will be held at her fathers’ farm, date TBD.  The family sincerely thanks each of you that supported Kris through this long illness with the many prayers, your time (visits and/or video calls), decorating her rooms and gifts of comfort.  The love, kindness and companionship meant the world to her. We also express our gratitude to the wonderful medical and administrative staff at Spruce Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Compassus Hospice Care and St. Joseph’s Hospital.  If anyone would like to make a donation in Kris’s memory, please consider the National Mental Health Foundation.
