Kristin Nicole McKeown-Seese, 36, and her husband Brett passed away unexpectedly on September 26, 2020. Kristin was the loving mother of Adelle Sardina and fur baby Gypsy. Step-mother to Christina and Ashton Seese. Beautiful daughter of Matt & Renee (nee Morrison) Rainey, Shari Morrison, Timothy (Bridget) McKeown and Michael (Julie) Wood; dear sister to Courtney (Nick) Thom, Andrew and Joseph Pipp, Lindsey and Lauren McKeown and the late Melinda Pipp; cherished granddaughter of Michael and Theresa McKeown, Chuck and Donna Wood, Tricia (Dave) Tellier, Thomas (the late Jill) Rainey and the late Gerald and Joanne Morrison. She is further survived by numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, other relatives and countless friends.
Kristin graduated from West Allis Central High School in 2002 and went on to earn her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Communications and a Certificate of Childhood and Adolescence Studies from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2013. Her professional career included positions at Victoria’s Secret, Joy Global, The Medical College of WI and Price Engineering. Kristin met Brett Seese in 2007, and they were married in Key West, FL September 27, 2014.
The proudest day of Kristin’s life was when she discovered she was pregnant with her daughter Adelle. She fell head over heels in love with her child and never missed one second of one day letting Adelle know that she was the center of her world.
Kristin was an amazing young woman full of love and compassion that extended to all in her far-flung family, where she acted as the glue holding us all together. Kristin and Brett took many road trips with their family throughout the United States and Mexico, inspiring them all to appreciate her love of adventure. She loved learning and was constantly reading a new book. Kristin loved music, was an outstanding artist, and found beauty in everything she did.
Kristin lived her life loudly and unabashedly. She loved fully and freely, whether she knew you for a day, a year, or a decade, Kristin met everyone with a profound kindness you weren’t nearly ready for. She had a natural knack of bringing humor into every challenge she faced. Kristin was stunningly beautiful, wasn’t modest at all, and we loved her even more for it.
Although the world has one less star in its sky, she will forever remain in our minds, hearts and our beloved Adelle.
Private services were held for immediate family only. A celebration of life for extended family and friends will be held at a later date.
