Kristen Elizabeth Cole, age 31, of Haslett, MI passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on August 3, 2019 at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing MI due to a pulmonary embolism. Kristen was born in Grosse Pointe MI and attended Grosse Pointe South High School, where she was a member of the Blue Dolphins Synchronized Swim team and worked at the Grosse Pointe Public Library. She attended Central Michigan University, where she studied education and met the love of her life and husband, Ben Sorensen. Kristen and Ben were married on the beach in Jamaica and were avid world travelers, adventuring in Europe (Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, London, Belgium, Amsterdam, Hungary and Czech Republic) and Central America. Kristen also fulfilled her lifelong love of Ireland with a study abroad semester at the University of Limerick. She did numerous volunteer service trips, including to Chicago, West Virginia and Ghana, Africa. Kristen loved history and reading - Hamilton and Harry Potter being two of her favorites. Kristen loved animals - especially her two dogs, Frankie and Ellie, and her cat Luna. Kristen was a devoted and loving aunt to her three nephews, Ethan and Nolan Ochab and Dane Sorensen. Kristen was deeply loved by all who had the privilege of knowing her, and an inspiration to all. She was a strong, fiercely independent woman who fought until the end.

Kristen is survived by her loving husband, Benjamin Sorensen, her beloved English springer spaniels Frankie and Ellie and her cat Luna. Her father Edward Cole, mother Linda (Baxter) Cole, sister Laura (Cole) Ochab and brother in law Matthew Ochab and two nephews, Ethan Ochab and Nolan Ochab.
