FCSE Program Chair Karen Alexander, Ph.D. shared the following tribute about her colleague and friend.
“Kristie was an amazing, accomplished woman who had a love for life like no other and a passion for teaching, her students, family and consumer sciences education, and serving others,” Dr. Alexander said. “There will forever be someone missing for me at Texas Tech. I was blessed by her friendship and honored to work with her on her dissertation. She was one of the most creative individuals I have ever met. She was always thinking about how she could be more innovative than she already was and how she could keep moving our program forward. She accomplished so many goals in her time with FCSE to make our program stronger for our students. She challenged her students daily for their best, and she inspired her colleagues to give their best in teaching, research, and service. I am a better teacher and FCS professional because of her. I will miss her terribly.”
Kristie served as a Family and Consumer Sciences educator for over 12 years before joining Texas Tech as an instructor in 2018. Kristie completed her B.S. in FCSE at South Dakota State and her M.S. in Teaching and Learning at Northern State University.

“Kristie Storms was not only my colleague and classmate, but more importantly, my friend. She had such a wonderful way of making everyone around her feel special. She was special, and anyone who knew her would say the same. She will be missed by family, friends, colleagues, and students alike. Her level of passion for Family and Consumer Sciences was unbelievable. She had an endless supply of energy and enthusiasm for our profession. I believe if Kristie could ask one thing, it would be that everyone find it in their heart to help those they can. That was Kristie’s mantra; always helping others.”

It is with deep sadness that I report my sister Kristie Storms unexpectedly passed away in her home Saturday. Please keep my family (parents) in your thoughts and prayers.
She was someone with a personality larger than life. She carried more enthusiasm for the basic life routines than anyone I have ever met. She loved my boys a bushel and a pec. She loved educating and teaching like none other. She leaves a legacy more than she’ll ever understand.
We need a to be uplifted today. Please send me all your favorite memories and pictures you have of Kristie.
My heart is broken at the news of the passing of Kristie Storms. The passion she has for education, specifically Family and Consumer Sciences, is beyond measure. He love for her students, the subject, and FCCLA is second to none. My prayers go out to her family and the Tech community. I pray God wrap His arms around you all as you heal from this sudden loss. Kristie, you will be dearly missed.
In loving memory of Kristie Storms, a great professor at TTU. I’m am shocked and saddened of hearing of her sudden passing. I met her when I came to Texas to begin my doctoral studies. She was always beaming with passion for FCS, and I loved her stories. She helped me feel at home in Texas and gave me great advice on the way to the airport to go home. I will forever be grateful for her leadership. Gone too soon but never forgotten. My heart is so broken. God has an angel in heaven. I can’t believe it.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
