Kristin J. Brott
Kristin Joy Brott, of Traverse City, was born Jan. 3, 1969 of Bonnie (Hunt) and Robert Slaven. She passed away on Nov. 5, 2019 from a sudden illness.
She enjoyed movies, crocheting and was fluent in the German and Turkish languages. She loved entertaining and introducing different cultured foods with family and friends. Most especially, she loved spoiling her cat, Vladimir.
She had many friends from all over the world. She was born in Traverse City and lived here all her life other than approximately five years spent living in Berlin, Germany.
She is survived by her husband, Wilson Brott; daughter, Leyla (Andrew) Melton; mother, Bonnie Slaven; sister, Misha Hunter; brother, Matt (Pat) Slaven; nephew, Steven Slaven; niece, Larissa Hunter; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who were like family.
She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Slaven; and her sister, Sherry Slaven.
As Kris had requested, there will be no funeral or memorial service.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Kris' memory be made to AC PAW, PO Box 94, Acme, MI 49610; or to the Cherryland Humane Society, 1750 Ahlberg Road, Traverse City, MI 49696.
The family is being cared for by the Reynolds Jonkhoff Funeral Home and Cremation Services.

We were blessed to have been included in several get togethers at Mrs. Slaven's home. Krissy had a wonderful presence and who could forget her smile? Our favorite memory of Kris is, watching her push her toddler daughter around Tom's food market. She was so beautiful interacting with her precious little girl and so in love!
