Kristen Rose Obituary, Death – Kristen (Daisy) Rose (Labrecque) Kourafas, formerly of Dawn Drive Allenstown, NH, and residing on Rabbit Rd., Salisbury, MA, passed away unexpectedly yet peacefully after bravely facing Dermatomyositis. In her final years, she enjoyed happiness and good health surrounded by loved ones. Kristen departed content with a life she took pride in and an inner peace.

Born on October 8, 1985, in Manchester, NH, to Mark and Dawn (Girard) Labrecque, Kristen spent her formative years at the family home and attended high school at Pembrook Academy. Achieving her cosmetology license at Continental Academie of Hair Design-Manchester, she cherished her career as a stylist and barber. In recent years, she embraced homemaking, devoted to caring for both cherished people and pets. Kristen epitomized the role of a caregiver, excelling as a dedicated wife, mother, daughter, pet parent, and friend. Her vibrant personality, akin to a firecracker, left an indelible impression on everyone she encountered. Happiest when surrounded by family in nature, Kristen, fueled by her resilient character, triumphed over drug addiction seven years ago, aspiring to instill hope in others facing similar struggles.

Survived by her husband, Andy Kourafas; parents, Mark and Dawn Labrecque; sons, CJ, Wes, Teddy, and Camden; in-laws, Ben and Laura Soussan; sister and brother-in-law, Amy and Ben Pepper; niece and nephews, Riley, Hannah, and Noah Pepper; grandparents, Leo and Yvette Labrecque and Joyce Colby; best friend, Jan Addabbo; and beloved dogs, Deets (Deetle-Bop) and Crash Blue (Bish-Bash). Kristen was predeceased by her grandparents, Donald and Henriette Girard. Services are scheduled for Wednesday, January 3rd, at Roan Funeral Home, 167 Main St., Pembroke, from 10 am to 12 pm, followed by a gathering (location to be determined).

In accordance with Kristen’s wishes, attendees are encouraged to avoid wearing black and adopt a lighthearted attire, as she wished for laughter and smiles, not somber reflections.
