Obituary

Kirsten Stacey Meyer, of Castle Rock, Colorado, passed away in a boating accident at
Lake Powell, Utah on July 12, 2017. Born May 8, 1965 in Regina, Saskatchewan,
Canada, Kirsten was the second of three children of Ferdinand Meyer and Shannon
Mendonca. Kirsten is survived by her father Ferd and step-mother Valentina Meyer of
Battlement Mesa, Colorado, her mother Shannon and step-father Jerry Mendonca of
Highlands Ranch, Colorado, her older brother David Meyer (wife Yoalder) of Durham,
North Carolina, and her younger sister Jyll Scott (husband Rick) of Castle Rock,
Colorado. Kirsten also leaves a niece (Eden) and three nephews (Greyson, Quin, and
Truman) of North Carolina, and three nephews (Aidan, Kellen, and Curren) of Castle
Rock, Colorado. She also leaves two step-sisters in Gothenburg, Sweden, Alexandra
Tittus and Valentina Cammans.
Kirsten lived in Canada until age 10, when her family moved to Littleton, Colorado. She
graduated from Littleton High School in 1983, and received a Bachelor of Science in
Marketing from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 1997. Kirsten was employed
as Executive Assistant of The Alan Smith Team at Re/Max Professionals for 28 years,
where she was a hardworking and dedicated teammate, and developed a close
relationship with every member of the team.
Kirsten was a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She
served a full-time mission for the Church in the Washington DC South Mission from
2004-2005. She served for more than 15 years as an ordinance worker in the Denver
Colorado Temple. Kirsten also served in many different capacities in her ward, including
as a Cub Scout Den Leader, and at her passing, as Primary President.
Kirsten had many passions in life. She was an excellent and engaged athlete who played
basketball, skydived, water-skied, completed a marathon, was a double black belt in Tae
Kwon Do, and participated in many triathlons and endurance races. Kirsten loved being
outdoors to engage nature, including biking and hiking throughout Colorado, and an
annual week vacation on a houseboat at Lake Powell. Kirsten was well travelled, and
visited many countries around the world.
Kirsten had a warm spirit that lifted her family and friends, and others who crossed her
path. She enjoyed the company of family and friends. She had a sarcastic wit and good
sense of humor, and was especially wonderful with her niece and nephews. Kirsten was a
gentle soul who found beauty in everyone and everything, and found ways to share that
light with others. One well-known example that touched so many family and friends is
the beautiful sunrise photos and inspirational quotes that she shared on social media
during her daily early morning walks.
