Mrs. Kratvitz passed away on Sept. 2, 2011, in South Africa, while she and her husband Hal were on their honeymoon.

She was born on March 13, 1971, in Opp, to Skip and Karen Eiland. She was a graduate of Benjamin Russell High School in Alexander City and Auburn University. She lived her life to the fullest and her passions included, first and foremost, her family and friends, her work, traveling and sports, especially Auburn football, where she actually began her career in the Auburn University Athletic Department as a sports information assistant while attending the university. Upon graduation, she went on to assume other college athletic positions at Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and as a charter associate of the Big Twelve Conference in Dallas.

She went on to work for Red Bull USA, Lion’s Gate Films and glaceau beverages. When the Coca-Cola Company acquired glaceau in 2007, they chose her to help launch their flagship brand, vitaminwater, across the globe as a member of Coca-Cola’s global marketing organization. She was instrumental in launching the brand in 21 countries and left a lasting impression in every country that she visited. She was widely admired and respected across the world for her passion, knowledge and warmth. She was an inspiration to all who knew her and her smile, energy and kindness will be profoundly missed. Through her work and travel, she fell in love with South Africa and its people, which is what led her to choose it for her honeymoon.

She is survived by her loving husband and soul mate, Hal, of Atlanta; three beautiful stepchildren, Rachel, Lauren and Sam; her loving parents, Skip and Karen Eiland of Alexander City; her loving brother, Trey Eiland, and his wife, Jennifer, of Roswell, Ga.; her loving brother, Parker Eiland, and wife, Beth, of Ocala, Fla.; her niece, Addie Eiland, and nephew Parker Walton Eiland Jr., both of whom she adored; and her loving father-in-law Samuel Kravitz of Stamford, Con.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents Mr. and Mrs. C.L. Eiland, of Florala and Mr. and Mrs. Clanton Walton of Birmingham.
