The 29-year-old, of Northallerton, North Yorkshire, was with her five-year-old son, who was also injured.
A 36-year-old Darlington man will appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates' Court on 21 February.
He has also been charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
Mrs Kirkup, a mother of two, was taken to Middlesbrough's James Cook University Hospital by air ambulance but later died.
