Kristine A. Osoteo was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, and grandmother. Her sunset on Wednesday, January 12th, 2022, at the age of 55 years.
Her sunrise was May 27th, 1966, to the parents Gilbert King George (Muckleshoot) and the late Georgina “Tina” King George (Upper Skagit).
As an enrolled member of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, Kristine shared her professional skills with the Muckleshoot Bingo, Muckleshoot Tribal Council Support Staff, Fisheries Program, and the Muckleshoot Loan Program.
Kristine was born in Shelton, WA but was raised in Auburn, WA (Muckleshoot Tribe) where she went to school, established deep rooted friendships and eventually her own family. For the first twenty years of her life, she learned to navigate this bumpy modern-day trail. For the past 35 years she not only accomplished many goals but also reached several important milestones, such as becoming a wife, mother, and grandmother…roles which she embraced and excelled. For 35 years, Kristine endured many hardships and overcame many obstacles…but the one that stands out the most is the strength and courage she had to continue to find love and laughter while dealing with some very serious health issues. Those of us who were privileged enough to be aware of her health challenges know how much pain and inconvenience she endured.
We should all be so incredibly grateful for all the precious memories and her generosity with life, love, and her laughter.
It is a great comfort knowing that she will now forever rest in the loving arms of our beloved mother and grandmother.
Kristine is survived by her husband, Leondo Osoteo, daughter, Alice O. Purcell, daughter, Kirah N Marquard, Father, Gilbert King George, brother, Warren King George, sister, Leanne Denunzio, sister, Laverne Mathias, grandson Ashton Mather-Purcell and Aadyen N. Mather-Purcell and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
