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.
