Battle Ground

    Cristina Marie Kille (Hernandez) 50, of Vancouver, Washington; Passed peacefully in her sleep on
November 16th, 2023.
    Crissy (as her family and friends fondly call her), was born to Loving parents, Arcadio and Marie
Hernadez in New Brunswick, New Jersey on June 4th, 1973. Her older sister took one look, fell in love
and asked to keep her. She was deeply loved and adored from day one. When she was young her family
of 4 moved to Vancouver, WA. She continued into adulthood making this area her home where she
began to dream.
    From a young age, Crissy was full of rebellious confidence and a wit to match. She carried this with her
into life as she expanded her dreams and grew her family. Becoming a mom to Mollie and being Titi
Crissy were her greatest joys and driving force. In 2018, she married her longtime love and partner
Richard. Then to everyone’s excitement they brought into this world the families little miracle baby,
Arcadio. She delighted in her family and in the life she had created.
    Her curious nature inspired her to find new and fun way to engage with those around her. Anyone who
has met her will never forget her. Her friends became family and there was no getting out of it.
The love of family and her Cultural heritage, coupled with her giant heart; helped instill the kind of love
for community that put her on the path towards inspiring and touching countless lives. Her interest in
finding ways to help others came naturally and after a grueling amount of school, she earned her
Master’s in social work. Her awe-inspiring confidence, hair brain ideas, vibrant trade-mark fashion
sense, multiple degrees and the ability to talk to anyone was put to good work when her and her life-
long friend began their Flourishing business, Heritage NW consulting. Checking yet another dream off
her list.
    She lived her life to the absolute fullest. She loved fiercely and her light will never dim.
    Cristinia will be remembered and celebrated with love by her; husband Richard, Children Mollie, Max and
Arcadio, Parents: Cali and Marie, Sisters Cecelia and Cheyenne, including her many Aunts, Uncles,
Cousins, Nieces, Nephews, Brother in-law and countless friends.
