SOUTH PARIS — Kris Faye Paine, 54, of South Paris, passed away, Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, at her home in South Paris surrounded by her children and loving husband, after a short battle with lung cancer.

She was born on May 13, 1962, in Bridgton, a daughter of Ronald Clark and Marilyn Gammon.
 Kris married the love of her life, Ralph Edward Paine on Oct. 16, 1979 and shared nearly 37 joyful years together.
 She worked as a home health aide for numerous clients who adored her. She also worked cleaning for Larry Moore until the time of her diagnosis.
 In her free time, Kris was very family oriented. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and especially her husband. She loved to drink tea, read, work in her gardens, crossword puzzles, cooking, baking, and studying the word of God with her husband. Many referred to her as the strongest person they’ve ever known, as well as the kindest. She was truly a woman of great character and will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
