KRYSTYNE (KRISSY) as her cousins called her when we played @ Uncle Peter's/Auntie Stella's backyard and on the best homemade swing set! She was my little cousin, fun-loving, full of energy and spunk. Her smile lit up the room! Krys was one of the most creative people I have known. We always received a holiday gift of her homemade chocolates and her
clothing line was custom made. She was generous with her time, talent and friendship and cared for her mother. Krys was a loving aunt to Jonathon and Stephanie, caring for them as children and designing original costumes for them. As a teenager she dove into a friend's pool, seriously injuring her neck and spine which resulted in a lifetime of constant pain. Krys persevered and turned her suffering into ministering to the disabled. May she be remembered as a beautiful soul and may Our Good Lord open His arms and give her lasting peace with her dear mother, Stephanie.

To the Pabis family:

My sincere condolences on the passing of Krys. I was a friend of hers in high school. Although we parted ways, I never stopped thinking of her and of the times we spent together going out and wearing the wonderful clothing she made. I still have one of her designs! I know she adored you, Paul. She was a beautiful soul. So sad.

I will keep you in my thoughts, Debbie

Dear Paul and family. I was so sorry to read about Krystyne’s passing in the paper today. Your Mom and Krystyne were customers of mine at NBIS and we always had a great visit. Your Moms Birthday March 7 and mine were the same day and they never forgot it. Even after your Mom passes Krystine still remembered each year as minder of your Mom. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. She loved you all dearly.

I don't know where to begin. My heart is aching. Paul, your sister spoke so much and so highly of you. She loved you very much! I live next door to Krys and have so many fond memories. I didnt wanna believe this was true. In the morning she would call me to come over for coffee, and I would. She would call just because she wanted company, and I would go. She was so kind, loving and caring....and DEFINITELY a She has left me with beautiful memories and I will forever love and miss her. Gone too young. You will be missed sweet girl. Thank you for being my friend!!! 💔

Dear Paul, Patrice, family and friends,
We are so very sorry for your loss. We were fortunate enough to meet Krystyne and spend time with her years ago during Christmas holidays at Ann and Bob's house at the lake. She was a sweetheart and I'm so glad we got to know her.

Dear Paul, Patrice, Jonathan and Stephanie, I was so sad to hear of one of our younger family members taken too soon! Now I know, it was Krystyne who made Jonathan and Stephanie's creative Halloween costumes that they wore to the Polish Women's Club Halloween parties that I used to run. Many will miss her creative nature. My sincerest sympathy to all of you at this sad time. Marcia (Marnik) DuPont and family

RIP cousin, Whether it was months or years between meetings at church or family gatherings we always picked up our chatting together as if we had seen each other only the day before. Will always remember you Krys.

Dear Paul,Patrice, Johnathan and Stephanie. Our deepest and sincerest sympathies and prayers are with you. We have lost a dear friend who meant a great deal us. I first met Krys when I was 17 through our mothers being friends. We had lost contact through the years and through a mutual friend re connected when I received a call that a friend of his needed some work done on her house. We remained good friends since then. Her friendship will be deeply missed.

Dear Paul, Holly and family. We are so saddened and shocked to hear of Krissy’s passing. We spent many years living under the same roof with she and Steffie and so many of our fond memories contain them both. Krissy was such a talented and loving person and her passion for her chocolates, sewing and crafting was amazing. While we have drifted apart over the last few years, she was always like family to us and we are kept in touch via Facebook. May she rest in the sweetest peace and be rejoicing in Heaven with those whom she has loved and lost. Our sympathies are with you during this sad time.

Beautiful Krystyne was a dear friend of mine in high school. I have not lived in the NB area for many years, but my family recently informed me of her passing. I was very shocked and saddened to hear of that, as she was so young, but also a wonderful person inside and out! I offer my deepest condolences to her family, and to all who knew and loved her.

May God be holding you in the palm of His hand, sweet Krystyne - oh she of the Angel eyes!
