Tina (Chaves) Kauffman-Krol, 41, of Auburn passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born July 24, 1977 in Framingham, MA, she was the daughter of John and Ana (Matias) Chaves. She is survived by her husband, Kenneth A. Krol; her beloved children, Madelyn Kauffman and Oliver Krol; her sister, Jessica Chaves; as well as her extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Tina truly lived life to the fullest, never taking a moment for granted. Her two children were the center of her world, never was there a more devoted mother. She had an ability to touch so many lives wherever she went. Tina enjoyed her many peaceful walks picking up seashells along the beaches of West Yarmouth. She treasured so many memories of vacations to Lake Winnipesaukee and Laconia with her loving family.

Tina’s family would like to express their gratitude to all the doctors and staff of the Saint Vincent Cancer and Wellness Center for the support and kindness given to Tina and her family as well as for their many friendships.

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with Tina’s family between the hours of 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at the BRITTON-WALLACE FUNERAL HOME, 91 Central Street, Auburn followed by a Celebration of Life Service beginning at 7:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Tina’s memory to Saint Vincent Cancer and Wellness Center, Attn: Donna Lacerte-Blais, One Eaton Place, Worcester, MA 01608.
