February 22, 2016

Kristen Lee McWhinnie CHARLOTTE - Kristen Lee McWhinnie, age 29, passed away on February 22nd, 2016, after a long courageous battle with kidney disease and diabetes. She was a true inspiration to all who knew and loved her. Kristen was born in Fall River, MA on March 17, 1986, to Linda Darden McWhinnie and David E. McWhinnie. She attended Charlotte city schools and was working on her associate's degree at CPCC. Her passion was reading and collecting historical novels especially British literature and the classics. She spent many hours of service volunteering at Mercy Hospital, CMC Main and the Allegro foundation. Kristen's dream was to be a part of Life Share to benefit organ donation. In addition to her beloved parents, Kristen is survived by her grandmother Barbara Darden, uncle Grady Wells, uncle and aunt Robert and Crystal Darden, their daughter Madison Darden, Kristen's step-mother Deborah McWhinnie and half-sister Rebecca Tondreau. A memorial service to honor Kristen's life will be held at the Myers Park Baptist Church at 11:00 am on Friday, February 26th. A reception will follow the service at Heaton Hall at the church. We want to give special thanks to a very special person whom unselfishly donated her kidney to Kristen at Johns Hopkins Hospital - Susan Humphreys. In lieu of flowers, the family would ask for a donation to be made to either the Kidney Foundation, 5950 Fairview Rd., Unit 708, Charlotte, NC 28210 or the Diabetes Foundation, 312 N. Eugene St., Greensboro, NC 27401.

Arrangements are in the care of Kenneth Poe Funeral & Cremation Services, 1321 Berkeley Ave Charlotte NC 28204. Phone: 704 641-7606
