On Friday, March 13 2020, Kristine E. Ekholm, age 64, of Taunton, lost her battle with choloangiocarcinoma, a rare form of cancer that she fought hard for 5 years like the warrior she was. She was surrounded by her loving family & friends at the time of her passing.

Krisitne was born in Quincy as the one and only doting daughter to the late Carl and Ruth (Pennel) Ekholm.

Kristine was vibrant and full of life. She touched every person she came into contact with. Kristine was quick wit and full of laughter. She enjoyed spending time with her family, her loving friends & her adorable animals. Kristine lived life to the fullest. She spread love and kindness to everyone she came in contact with. She loved spending time with her son Jason traveling to different places all over the country, dancing the night away at her favorite concerts & going to events to meet the stars.  She enjoyed being with her son Ryan taking adventurous drives, spending time at the beach catching the sun, watching funny TV shows & movies. Kristine loved having cookouts, dancing, playing bingo, cribbage, eating ice cream all amongst her family and friends . She loved her Sangria drinks and believed that were non-alcoholic, lol. Kristine loved her animals Muffy, Shadow, Chicky, Mia, Maggie, Keiko & Merry. Kristine shook her booty to her favorite music from Madonna, Cher, Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Michael Jackson & more. One of her favorite things each year was traveling to Islandmorada with her brother Richard and her beautiful nieces that she loved so much and had so much excitement to see. Basking in the sun on a hammock with a sangria in hand watching the beautiful “keys” sunset. Kristine was able to spend an ample amount of  time with her best friends from work at home daily, which she loved doing to pass the time away. They shared laughs and memories of all their times together. Kristine always gave the shirt off her back for those in need. She was loved by all. Kristine will be greatly missed by all. She will be forever our loving mom!

She is survived by her sons; Jason Ekholm and Ryan Ekholm, brothers; Richard Ekholm, Ralph Ekholm, granddaughter; Sophia. She was the sister of the late Carl Ekholm, Jr. and Paul Ekholm.
