Kristie Wright Fortin (Marmee), age 57, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 30th, 2021 at home with her loved ones. She was born August 22, 1963, in Baton Rouge, LA to James and Janice Wright, the oldest of four children.

Kristie married Roger Fortin on October 14th, 1995, in Ferriday, soon after relocating to Lake Charles, LA. While in Lake Charles, she spent most of her career at Mark Dodge where she built lifelong relationships with her work family, many of whom she loved dearly. Her passion outside of work was helping others. She was an active volunteer at The Whistle Stop, The City of Lake Charles Parks and Recreation Millennium Park Campaign and with The American Red Cross after hurricane’s Katrina and Rita. In 2015, she and Roger relocated to Kansas City, MO to be closer to their family. While in Kansas City, she worked for Hendrick Automotive where she once again built a strong work family whom she cherished.
