Kristen Elizabeth Heyborne-Jablonski, 32, passed away unexpectedly Friday, January 7, 2022. She was born September 27, 1989 in Wake County. Kristen was a beloved daughter, granddaughter, wife and mother. Her greatest joy was becoming a mother to her precious daughter, Penelope. Kristen was passionate, loving, and kind. She was exceedingly devoted to her family, her husband, Michael and many friends, as she was generous, big-hearted, and forgiving. Her mother, Patricia was her best friend and they loved baking together. Kristen had an obvious talent with cooking and loved to experiment with food. She was creative, loved various arts and crafts in diverse media. Kristen also loved fashion, fashion nails and experimenting with make-up. Playing “dress-up” was one of her favorite things as a child and it stayed with her. In many ways, she could be an adult without completely growing up. Those who survive her will dearly miss that spark of youth and passion in our lives.
