Tribute & Message From The Family

Kristi Marie Couvillon-Wise was born on September 20, 1974 and went to be with Our Lord after a long battle with postpartum depression.

She is survived by her loving husband John Wise, her beautiful daughter Vivienne Grace Wise, her mother and stepfather Donna & Paul Kreuzer, her father Edward Couvillon, in addtion to numerous other family members and friends. Kristi was born in Texas City, TX and lived a good portion of her early life in Missouri City, TX.

She received her B.A. from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, her Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas, and passed the State Bar of Texas after having graduated from the University of Texas Law School in 2005.

She was a strong advocate for social justice helping win a case at the Supreme Court while working with the Texas Defender Service. Her awards and accomplishments are voluminous and speak volumes of her dedication to the service of others. Her kindess and generosity towards others was extended to her family, friends, and pets (all of whom were rescued). She may have described herself best as - "daydreamer turned social worker turned lawyer. loves music, dancing, and running. adores pit bulls and ornery cats. obsessed with midnight blue bubble tea. loves the way mountain laurels smell in spring when the wind blows through them."

Her vivacious smile and laughter will be missed by all. Words cannot describe the severity of the loss to her family and friends, but also to the countless number of people whose lives she impacted or would have impacted.

Arrangements under the guidance and direction of Wrench Funerals & Cremations, Leander, Texas.

Condolence & Memory Journal

I did not know your daughter but today when I went to go visit my daughter at the Lady of the Rosary cememtary I saw her grave. My daughter passed on May 23, 2010 at the age of 18 so I can understand your loss. When I looked at when your daughter was born it hit a cord with me. My birthday is Sept.26, 1974. Your daughter was a beautiful young woman and I am sure she will be greatly missed. I wanted to let you know that where she is buried is a very peaceful place. I can go there early in the morning to dusk and it calms me. I have young children too and they love to walk through and look at the flowers and play in the field area. It is welcoming. My daughter is in the same area as yours. She is the one with the yellow bells on her "garden" as I call it. I just wanted to let you know that I am sorry for your loss but let you know that where she is at is a peaceful place to be.\

Kristi hadsuch an incredible spirit and an unyielding quest for justice. She clerked for me a short while and we remained friends and cohorts ever after. She will truly be missed.

Dear Donna,\
We were so sadden to hear of Kristi's death. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We lost our daughter Karen at the age of 19 in 1992. The death of a child is something you never get over, but in time the pain lessens. Our deepest sympathy to you and the family.\
