Kristie Latour (nee Schuler)

October 8, 1972-May 9, 2012

There are no words that can express her family’s sadness at the tragic passing of a loving wife and mother Kristie Latour.

Kristie will never be forgotten and always loved by her devoted husband Paul, beautiful children Danielle and Cole, her mother Irene and husband Dave, and her father Ron and wife Maureen. She will also be remembered and loved by her brother Neil and wife Kelly, her sister Kim and husband Darren, and her brother Kevin.

She will also be sadly missed by her extended family including sister-in-law France and husband Victor, sister-in-law Michele and husband Jacques, sister-in-law Josee and husband Jack, and brother-in-law Andre, as well as many nieces and nephews.

But her family did not end there, she touched many others including friends Lynay, Kerry, Debbie, Lorenda, Becky, Kristen, Tiffany and Hugh.

As well, she had many friends at CR Baptist Church and Christian School and at her business “She Runs with Scissors”.

Kristie was born in Richmond BC and moved to Qualicum were she spent her childhood. Then due to illness she returned to Vancouver. In was in her late teens that she first developed her skills in managing various aspects of retail business. Then on an April weekend in 1995 by chance she met Paul. Their love was immediate and they married in May 1997. Their children followed soon, Danielle in 1998 and Cole in 2000. While raising her family, her passionate personality also compelled her to open her own business.

During this time she also chose to receive Christ into her life as her Saviour.

Her children were her most cherished possessions and she loved them unconditionally and totally at all times, and anyone or anything that appeared to threaten them in any way would quickly feel the sting of her tongue. Her passion in all things was quickly apparent to all those who met her. Whether about God, family, life or work her opinion was heard strongly Good or Bad. But along with this firey personality, inside down deep she had an enormous heart which caused her to cry over silly TV shows, but would also cause her to take on other people’s emotions and carry their burden with her. These emotions came with a price for her and she fought everyday of her life to control the torment that she had within and behave like you and me. So, with her belief in Christ as the Great Redeemer, she knew that the Peace she so desired would come through Him when it was time.

Kristie, you have won the battle, Rest in Peace, we all love you and will meet again in Paradise.
