April 8, 1988 – Sept. 2, 2013
Krista Fern Walt of Sherwood Park, formerly of Whitecourt, AB, passed away suddenly on Monday September 2 2013. She will be forever missed by her family: her son, Lincoln Walt-McGrath, parents, Cam and Kathie Walt, brother, Cory Walt, fiancé, Tanner MacDonald and his parents Marie and Hector MacDonald and his siblings Murdock and Kate MacDonald. Krista will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and numerous wonderful friends. Krista was predeceased by her maternal grandparents, Lois and Doug Shupe and her paternal grandparents Cecil and Dorothy Walt. Krista was born on April 8, 1988 in Edmonton, AB and then moved to Whitecourt with her family before the age of one. She graduated High School in 2006. She worked in Whitecourt and then met Lincoln’s dad, Patrick McGrath. After spending three more years in Whitecourt she then moved to St. Albert to pursue her career. There she met her soul mate and the love of her life, Tanner. They began their journey together and had planned their wedding for May 15, 2014 in the Mayan Rivera. She was a wildfire that burned far to bright for this world. She was loved by everyone she touched. Her contagious smile will never be forgotten. A Celebration of Krista’s Life will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at 2 p.m. at the Whitecourt Central Elementary School with Dr. Larry Kulak officiating. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to a Trust Fund set up for her son Lincoln Walt-McGrath at the Royal Bank in Whitecourt, AB or care of Rose Garden Chapel, Box 4119, 5326 48 Street Barrhead, AB T7N 1A1 who is entrusted with the care and arrangements.
