Krissie G. Kores-Dinkle

Krissie “Kris” G. Dinkle, daughter of the late Peter and Mary (Peggy) Kores was born August 25, 1958 in Wilson, North Carolina. She graduated from Marshall High School in Falls Church, VA. She was a member of Burke United Methodist Church.


Kris and Doug met in 1977 and she married the love of her life on June, 20, 1981 at Cherrydale Methodist Church in Arlington, VA. They settled in Fairfax County where they held many creative and festive parties for their beloved friends, family, and neighbors. Throughout 41 years of their devoted partnership they enjoyed traveling, especially to the ocean, as well as attending music concerts, theatre and local community festivals. Their unwavering commitment to each other was an inspiration to anyone that had the honor to experience it.


Kris was a humanitarian. She loved animals of all kinds, and was a doting mother to many cats in her lifetime. She was always willing to lend a helping hand to take care of the animals of others who entrusted her with their homes and pets, and ultimately folded this passion and experience into her professional life.  She held various roles in her career as a meeting planner, administrative assistant, and receptionist for various trade and non-profits through the Northern Virginia area.


She departed this life unexpectedly Saturday, November 10, 2018, in Fairfax, Virginia. Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her dear husband Doug Dinkle, sister-in-law Angela Dinkle, two fur babies Kade and Midas, as well as her extended family and many loving friends.


A Celebration of Kris’s life will take place on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at Advent Funeral Services located at 7211 Lee Highway, Falls Church, VA 22046.

    43 years sounds like such a long time, and yet it went by in the blink of an eye. I always thought Krissie would be around to laugh over school and life memories forever. Doug and Angela, our hearts grieve for you especially, but the girls and I will miss their Aunt Krissie, sister of my heart, forever.

    All our love to you both.

    Sweet woman. Never a bad thing to say. Also jolly and happy and always a smile on her face. A truly great love between her and her husband. A great loss for us all.

    Kris was a wonderfully beautiful woman and soul. I will look back fondly on the brief time we worked together, enjoying our conversations of our shared love for felines 🙂

    I’m so glad I could be at Krissie’s Big 60th B-day party. Little did I know it would be my last time seeing her. She always tried to find the goodness in people and was there always in our P. K. family offering help in the very sad times we all endured together and celebrating the fun times together too. She had looked so dearly to moving this spring to N. Carolina. It saddens me so that dream that meant so much to her will never be. During all of this I have asked why did this happen to someone that still had so much to give to those around her…The only conclusion that comes to mind is god was getting short of angels in heaven so he called Krissie home. Forever in our memory and hearts Krissie…You will never be forgotten.

    Dear Doug and Angela,
    So sorry for your loss. Krissie was such a sweet lady and always enjoyed our talks. So sad as she was looking forward to moving down south and retiring with you Doug to a quite and simpler life. Well God had other plans. She is in a better place where there is no pain sickness or death. Celebrate her nice long life with you both. Cherish the memories and soon you shall move on some as she would want you too. There is a nice extra room here in my home in sunny warm Florida for you any time.
