Kristin Alverna Jennings

Kristin Alverna Jennings, age 39 of Leland, NC, sadly and unexpectedly passed away in her bed on September 12, 2021.

Kristin was born in Forsyth County, NC on November 25, 1981 to Michael and Karen Jennings.

Kristin received her GED from Forsyth Technical Community College, where her father attended, and proceeded to study to be a Registered Nurse at the same college. Kristin also worked with her mother at a warehouse for a time. After graduating from Forsyth Tech, Kristin started working at Coastal Horizons in Wilmington, NC. Everyone there just loved her and gravitated toward her, as she was such a kind and generous soul. Kristin was lovingly known as “Cupcake” by her coworkers. She lit up a room and was always happy to help others. She exuded a positive energy that others could not help but be attracted to. When Kristin wasn’t working, she enjoyed attending music events around town. She grew to know lots of live musicians in the Wilmington area and attended their shows often. Kristin also loved animals, especially cats and hedgehogs, as she had 6 cats of her own and bred hedgehogs in the past. Kristin will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all that had the opportunity to know her in her lifetime.

Kristin in survived by her parents Michael and Karen Jennings, her half brother Brian Hundley (Michelle), two uncles who loved her very much, Rick Zimmerman (Cheryl) of Germington, NC and Daryl Jennings (Debbie) of Lewisville, NC, many cousins, 2nd and 3rd generations, in NC and PA, her long time friend Amy Nichole, her boyfriend Travis, and many other extended family members and friends.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Kristin to be announced at a later date.
