Born in: Roswell, Georgia
Resided in: Canyon Country, California

On Wednesday, June 27, 2019, Kristen Lynn Cavanaugh, our beloved daughter, was called into the arms of God at the age of 33.

Kristen was born on October 3, 1985 in Roswell, Georgia. Kristen attended Holy Trinity and Divine Redeemer schools and went on to graduate from Pine Creek High School in Colorado Springs. Kristen studied journalism at UNC and excelled in creative writing. Kristen also graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood with a Music Business degree. Kristen worked as a copywriter for Disney and recently started a small business, Wits Endo Corner Apothecary.

Kristen had a passion for helping those with chronic illnesses, and through her small business of health care products, she reached many women who suffer with endometriosis and fibromyalgia. Kristen was also known for her devotion to her small menagerie of cats and dogs.

Kristen is survived by her brother, Mike, and step-sister, Danielle. A Mass of the Resurrection will be held on Wednesday, July 3 at St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church at 11:00 AM. The church is located at 2301 York St. Denver, CO 80205.

Memories Timeline


  1. After my first surgery for endometriosis, she sent me a care box…all the way to Florida. She made me feel less alone. Rest In Peace, friend. Your light will be missed. ????

  2. Rest In Peace my dear endo sister, your contributions, and the smiles you created in our community will never be forgotten.
    May your pain be eased.

  3. To a beautiful soul that made a difference in many people’s lives. May you rest in the Lord’s loving arms and heal your heart and soul…..

  4. I remember a little five-year-old girl sitting terrified in the back of my car – a woman she didn’t know – driving her home from her fist day of kindergarten. Her face set with a slight frown, and her big eyes trying hard not to cry. She must have been thinking, “Does this lady even know where I live??” I remember telling her that I was friends with Krissie Pease’s mom and dad, and if it would make her feel better, I could take her home first, and Krissie last so there would be someone in the car she knew. She gulped, her eyes cleared, and she seemed a little happier. Then, a few months later, the girls were invited to a classmate’s swim party. I remember hearing for the first time, and apparently Kristen’s first time too, that, “Jesus doesn’t like bikinis.” This was new to me, and to this day I remember it and laugh heartily. Kristen wore her cute little bikini to Laura’s swim party. Jesus didn’t seem to notice, or if He did, didn’t seem to mind. I only knew you as an adult for a couple of years on FB. In my mind you will always be that sweet, blond beauty of five, six, seven, etc… years old, and sweetie, you will be missed. I’m a bit jealous that you get to meet the best rock front man, and an extremely talented musician – vocalist, pianist, and numerous other instruments – to ever to grace a stage. Say hi to Freddy! (As if you haven’t already!)

    • PS – And remember, as you, Amanda, and Bethany figured out, blonde haired kids are adopted, and brown haired kids are biocologul (sic). May you finally be at peace and rest in the arms of our beautiful, loving, Savior – Jesus.

  5. Kristen was my roommate at UNC and I have so many great, fun memories of her. Over the last 14 years we had so many fun inside jokes that I will cherish always…ALWAYS. She was such a great support for me through hard times and she truly had a heart for helping everyone she could. She had so many interests and passions. I will greatly miss her in my life and it will not ever be the same without her in it. I am beyond grateful that in her time here I was able to call her my friend and will cherish that time the rest of my life. Kristen, I will deeply miss you and hope you Rest In Peace.

  6. My prayers condolences and blessings go to the family and friends of Kristen.
    May Kristen Rest In Peace ????✝️????

  7. I love you and miss you dear friend. I was so blessed that God brought us together and we were able to be there for each other. The house feels empty and the fur babies are confused.
    You are finally with Freddy !
    Rest well in Jesus’ arms Kris.

  22. Kristen has helped me through many painful days with her quirky and funny posts on many occasions. I had also spoke to her about purchasing her pain boxes for next years Endo month. She was such a kind hearted soul. She will be severely missed in the endometriosis/fibro community. Fly high sweetie xx

  23. I never had the privilege of talking to Kristen. She just added me on facebook. I do know from everyone around that she was an amazing woman and friend. Sending love to the friends and family.

  24. Kristen, you’ll always be in my heart. Time got in the way of checking in these last few years, but you’ll always hold a special place. From befriending me when I was a lost junior in high school, to being the only kind person to me when I got pregnant, from giving me a safe haven so I could have my daughter, to the party nights, and Harry Potter Premiere, the memories are so bright. I still have our BFF pictures from JcPenny. I am devastated at your passing. You were too young and had given so much love. I read all of the condolences before me and only saw the incredible proof that you made an enormous impact on those around you and all over the world. I pray you have found peace. Know you are loved.

  29. Rest In Peace Kristen! Thank you for your love and constant encouragement to all your fellow endo sisters. We hang your boxing gloves up with tears in our eyes, your fight is over but your spirit lives on!

  30. I got to know Kristen though an endometriosis Facebook group. I didn’t know her that well and we didn’t really talk that often… but when we did talk, we could always relate to eachother, wether it was about endometriosis, fibromyalgia, overthinking, brainfog or pets/dogs.
    I’m not on Facebook that often anymore, so I didn’t find out about her dying until 1am on July 8th… just a few days before that I had sent her a video of a dog in Facebook messenger, when she didn’t reply I just thought that she was either busy making bathbombs etc. or that she was having a bad flare up and wasn’t feeling well enough to respond…
    It’s been almost 27 hours since I found out about her death and I still can’t believe that it happened, I’m still in shock.
    She was one of the nicest people I’ve ever known. When I said that I wanted to buy a few bathbombs from her to support her, she changed the shipping information in her store just so that I could order bathbombs to Norway and when I had finished my order she changed it back.
    She also made my bathbombs without cbd (not legal here) and when the package was sent back to her, she even made a few more bathbombs that she sent me/wanted to send me.
    I don’t know if she was able to send the package before this happened.
    I would of course understand if she wasn’t able to send it, but I hope sie was able to do it, just so I would have something of hers/something she made to remember her by.

    Chronic illness is a bitch.

    Rest in peace warrior Kristen????
    You won’t be forgotten????
