It is with much sorrow that we announce the passing of Krista Powers of Riverview on December 8th at the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Moncton, she was the daughter of William J. and Nicole (Martin) McNichol.

Krista enjoyed a full life from a young age. As a girl she learned to figure skate, eventually becoming a certified judge for competitions just shy of Olympic level. From the time she was a child, she would play "teacher", setting up classrooms of toys to practice with. As she grew, she worked towards this dream by achieving a BA in French and English from Mount Allison University. She spent a year in France as an exchange student with Mt. Allison before obtaining a B.Ed from UNB. She was adventurous and enjoyed trying new foods. She liked watching cooking shows and, though she could have infamously "burned water" before meeting him, learned to cook from her husband. Reading was a favourite hobby of hers and she had a well-stocked library.

Besides her parents, left to mourn her loss are her husband of 10 years Scott, sisters Judith Louise (Jonathan) and Jami-Lyn (Pierre) McNichol, sister-in-law Melanie (Mo) Elhossainy, brother-in-law Andrew (Kathryn) Powers, parents-in-law John and Margaret Powers, nieces and nephews Gabriel, Liam, Jameson, Walker, Mya, and Mira, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins, as well as her many friends.

Krista’s family would like to thank the nurses of Clinic C at The Moncton Hospital, the nursing staff in 3A ICU at Victoria General, and Dr. Walsh of Victoria General. Your kindness, support, and care were a comfort both to Krista and her family.

Her family will receive friends and relatives on Monday, December 19, 2022 from 6-8pm at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd, Riverview (869-2007). A service to celebrate her life will be held on Tuesday, December 20th at 11am at Holy Family Church, 52 Falkland St, Moncton (386-6178) with Father Phil Mulligan presiding. Masks are mandatory for both events. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Liver Foundation or a charity of choice would be appreciated by her family. Condolences may be expressed at
