Kristin Campbell Accurso
On Tuesday, January 10, 2023, Kristin passed away at the age of 39 due to complications of chronic autoimmune disease. She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.
Kristin was born on May 13, 1983 in Stamford, Connecticut to Anthony and Lisa Accurso. After graduating from Ladue High School, she received her Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Missouri – Columbia and earned a Master’s Degree in Applied Communications and Marketing from Denver University. Upon graduating, Kristin began her business career and won several awards for her Marketing creativity. Despite being chronically ill and in constant pain over the past 14 years, Kristin continued to do freelance marketing and graphic design work for several small businesses until the time of her death.
Kristin had a passion for art and spent countless hours creating pieces for loved ones through various mediums — drawing, painting, jewelry-making, and sculpting. She was an avid music lover and her love of music inspired much of her creativity.
Kristin will be remembered for her brilliant humor, infectious laughter, and genuinely one-of-a-kind free spirit. She was the life of the party and will be greatly missed. She adored her dog, Dylan, who was her cherished companion for 13 years.
Kristin is survived by her parents Lisa and Tony, her two sisters, Alison Accurso and Megan Valencic (Aaron), as well as her aunts, uncles, many cousins, niece, nephew, and countless friends.

I am so sorry to hear about us losing such a wonderful, loving human being. I knew Kristin through business, however it never felt like business when she was around. We would talk and see how our families were doing. her laugh was contagious and she was such a free spirit. She genuinely cared about you and what was going on in life. I was in utter shock and didn’t want to believe that she was gone from this earth. I can only say that the Lord knows what he is doing and we have to have faith and believe she is a pain free world now.
