Kristen Lynn Luttrell ascended peacefully in her own home on the night of October 1, 2023. Kristen was born on October 24, 1963 in San Bernardino, California to parents Larry and Alice Adams. She was raised in La Verne, CA with her two younger sisters, Karyn and Kendra. Kristen graduated from Bonita High School in 1981 as an active member of the drill team. She studied English-Language literature at the University of Montana. She had four children, Audra Delahunty, along with Annalise, Lukas, and Levi Porto. She loved to travel by moving (rather than vacationing) throughout California, Arizona, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Idaho. In addition to being a member of the PTA, CHIP, and Bahai Spiritual Assembly in North Idaho, she also served in AmeriCorp.
Kristen brought her family to Coeur d’Alene, ID in 1989 to build a new life venture in the beautiful area. Her parents followed suit by building their homestead at Sage Creek Ranch in Athol, ID. Her siblings soon followed in unison.
Holding a strong faith of 15 years, Kristen followed the Baha'i beliefs in her everyday life, and fulfilled a long held dream to visit the Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, IL. She shall be buried with a silver ring engraved with a Persian phrase that translates as, “I came forth from God, and return unto Him, detached from all save Him, holding fast to His Name, the Merciful, the Compassionate.”
She will be remembered for her witty humor, proper grammar knowledge, and compassion for teaching her life lessons. She took great pride in her children, sisters, and especially her granddaughter, Aurora. She was preceded in death by her Nephew Ryan, Father Larry, Daughter Audra, and Mother Alice. Her legacy shall continue with her beloved family and friends. She always knew Peace, Love and Happiness were the true blend to this earth.
Her final resting place will be at Mountain View Cemetery in Athol, ID. As she would say at the end of every conversation, “PEACE.”
