There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.

  • 50 years old
  • Born on May 29, 1966 in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States.
  • Passed away on October 29, 2016 in Sandy, Utah, United States.

Kris was a bright spirit.  Gone from this world far too early.  Born Kristin Anne McGuire to parents Kathleen McCune and Douglas McGuire.  She was an adventurous child and a caring mother.  She shared her gifts of writing and her love of music with her children Eric, Zach, Daniel, Whitney, Katie and Hannah. She was a grandmother to Lilly, Jayden, Ophelia, Alizia and Kolby, and a wife to Justin Smith.  She was a friend to all who knew her.  Her tenacious humor and kind nature will be missed by many.

  Although she is no longer with us, she will forever be in our hearts and in our memories. We know she will always be a part of our lives, guiding us, guarding us.  If we stop to listen we will hear her whispers of love, strength, and wisdom. 

Services will be held Thursday, 11/10, from 1:00 to 3:00 at the Chase Mill at Tracy aviary in Liberty Park....enter from 900 South.
The service should take an hour then a light lunch will be served. We will have free roam of the grounds as well.

Kris, As I sit here thinking about you today, I feel so incredibly lucky to have had you in my life. Meeting you was not only such a memorable day but one I will cherish always. Although sadness sweeps over me, I find comfort in knowing that your eternal travels will be beautiful beyond measure. Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

You will be missed Kris!,, I loved your laugh, I loved your heart!,, I can hear your laugh still. I have many good memories of us growing up in Draper, and even though we didn't talk all the time I felt you were always there and always my friend. I know how much you loved and cared about your kids and family, you were so proud of them! Go in Peace Kris! Love you

I will miss Kris and her sense of humor in all things. My favorite memories are from our early childhood. Only 18 mos older than me, our grandma was convinced we were twins and always gave us matching outfits in different colors. We hung out when I visited our grandma and at those times we had some good laughs. My wish for her is that she is at peace. She was proud of all of her children, and they are her legacy.
