A 2010 graduate of Odessa-Montour High School, Kiersten was the Accounts-Payable Clerk and all round head of household at McCarthy Tire in Wilson, NC. Always a free spirit, she lived in the moment while looking forward to her next adventure. She was a social media queen, our own Perez Hilton, using that technology and the power of her spirit to make and keep connections between all of her many loved ones. Her exuberance was captured in the many, many selfies she loved to share. Kiersten also had an overwhelming passion for turtles; rescuing, protecting and collecting them. Family and friends are invited to visit Walter J. Kent Funeral Home, 858 Lake St. at Washington Ave., Elmira on Sunday, April 15th from 1 to 5 pm. Her Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Monday, April 16th at 10 am in Ss. Peter & Paul Church, Elmira. Committal prayers and interment will follow in St. Peter & Paul's Cemetery.
