Kristina Ellen (Worthington) Watson, a bright light and force of nature in the Pacific Beach community, passed away peacefully on Feb. 27. Family and friends gathered around her to send her off, knowing their lives were better for having her with them.

A celebration of Kristina’s life is planned for 1 p.m. Sunday, March 22 at the Mission Bay Yacht Club (colorful clothing and flashy, comfortable shoes are encouraged for a festive celebration). In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Pacific Beach Middle School Music Association, the Mission Bay High School Music Program, Prevent Drowning San Diego, or Mission Bay High aquatics program.

Kristina was born at Grossmont Hospital on July 13, 1970, to George (Barry) and MaryDell Worthington and grew up in La Mesa. She attended Helix High School where she was very active in ASB and various service organizations, continuing her service to the community and volunteerism throughout her entire life.

Kristina went on to receive her bachelor’s degree with a dual major in social ecology and art history from the University of California, Irvine.

After working in the field of property management in South Mission Beach for several years, Kristina ultimately achieved a master’s degree in reading and language arts from San Diego State University and taught kindergarten for five years.

Kristina married the love of her life, Tom Watson of Pacific Beach in 1998. Kristina and Tom shared many adventures together and built a beautiful life in PB where they’ve raised three wonderful children. Kristina was a cornerstone of her family, both immediate and extended, as well as her community.

Over the past two decades, Kristina had been extremely involved with the schools, (Friends of PB Elementary and Friends of PB Secondary Schools), the school music programs, aquatics programs, PYSL Blast Soccer, and the Assembly Committee.

In addition, she worked as a real estate agent, was involved in several small business endeavors and organized a branch of “Moms in Motion” - a running and lifestyle group for women from which so many long-term friendships were built.

Kristina was an organized planner and goal setter and decided in her 30s to become a marathon runner. She accomplished her goals and completed dozens of half and full marathons including the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon, the (very hilly) Catalina Eco Marathon, and the 33-mile Holcomb Valley Trail Run in the Mountains of Big Bear. She inspired so many to keep running, walking or being active in some way.

Although Kristina had been fighting breast cancer, which eventually became metastatic, for over six years, she stayed actively involved in everything, becoming a founding member of the Pacific Beach Middle School Music Association, organizing fundraisers, attending her children’s sporting events and music performances, and making sure everyone around her was always where they were supposed to be.

None of this begins to tell the story of the beautiful and bright soul Kristina was, or the numerous lives she touched. She was a unique personality who chose to live loudly, with color and with the perfect shoes for every occasion.

She will be missed by so many and celebrated for lifetimes to come. 

Kristina is survived by her loving husband, Tom, her children, Sean, Kory and Addison, her parents, Barry Worthington and MaryDell Worthington, her sister, KariLyn Merlos (Marcos), mother-in-law, Mary Watson, sister-in-law Heidi Watson, nieces, Mariana Merlos and Emily Watson, nephew, CJ Watson, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and an army of friends. She was preceded in death by her brother-in-law, John Watson, and father-in-law, Charles Watson.

I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twins girls after 12 years of marriage.

When I came online last year, I met a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at [email protected] and later he gave me his Whats App number which is 2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twins girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man. Contact his email at [email protected] OR Whats App/Call 2348167159012 and you too will give a testimony too to help others
