- Kristen Bracklow, 70, of Portland, died peacefully at the home of her loving sister, Kimberly, on September 6, 2016, with her family by her side after a courageous battle with cancer. Kris was the first child born to Lloyd and Carol Cutter in Bangor on December 11, 1945.
Kris graduated from Bangor schools in 1964. Later, as she met and became involved with the Deaf community, she studied and learned American Sign Language. She found much fulfillment being involved with the Deaf community as a sign language interpreter for many years.
Kris was known for her generous spirit. Her kindness, compassion and hospitality were evident as she could always be depended on by her family, friends, and spiritual brothers and sisters. As a lifelong member of Jehovah's Witnesses, Kris will be remembered most of all for her unwavering faith and her love for Jehovah God. This was exemplified by a lifetime of spirituality and service to our Creator. She found comfort in his promise of a paradise resurrection.
A devoted mother, grandmother, daughter and sister, Kris is survived by her daughter, Carrie Profenno of Gray and her husband, Peter; beloved grandchildren, Ruby and Marco Profenno; sister, Kimberly and her husband, Richard Luciano; brother, Bruce and his wife, Anna Cutter; and nephew, Emmanuel and his wife, Erika.
