It is with great sadness that the family of Kristin Lynne Bourkland announces her sudden passing on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at the age of 35.

Kristin will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Eric Martin Bourkland and her two precious children, Keira Lynne and Andrew Martin; her parents, Drew T. and Deborah L. Makovec of Poinciana, FL; her parents-in-law, Martin Thomas and Paula Grubb Bourkland of Brevard, NC, sister-in-law, Wendy Bourkland Huff of Garner, NC, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends.

Kristin was born in Point Pleasant, NJ on December 1, 1976 and grew up in Manchester Township, NJ. She was Valedictorian of Manchester Twp. High School in 1995 and went on to graduate with a Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering from Virginia Tech in 2001. She worked at NASA-Goddard for 11 years.

Kristin was an incredible person who loved spending time with her two children and husband. The family enjoyed traveling places nearby and afar and most recently returned from Walt Disney World.

She was extremely genuine with her open heart, spirit, and deeds all as one. Friends have described Kristin as a kind and gentle spirit, sweet, a true friend…just an amazing person.

The family requests, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to the Memorial Fund for Keira and Andrew (MFKB).
