It is with great sadness that we learned of the untimely passing of Kristina Needham. She is the daughter of Executive Officer, Dad Harry E. Needham, III and Supreme Inspector for Rainbow, Mom Anne Needham.    

The following are excerpts from Dad Needham’s message.

“As many of you know Kristina passed away yesterday morning. Here are preliminary arrangements for Kristina, Thank you all for being here for us. Please know how much Anne and I appreciate your friendship.

She attended Hamden Public Schools and graduated from Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School in 2000, which was the first graduating class.

After graduating from Hamden High School in 2004, Krista attended Central CT State University and Albertus Magnus College where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Sciences. She was a Life Skills Coach working with teenage girls for Klingberg Family Centers.

Krista had studied martial arts for 24 years and received her 4th degree Master Black Belt in Tang Soo Do and was a dedicated instructor at the CCSU Karate Program and the Institute of Martial Arts in Wallingford.

She was also Past Worthy Advisor of Evergreen Assembly #44 and Past State Miss Service of the International Order of the Rainbow Girls.
