Kris fought addiction for many years, but was looking forward to 6 years of sobriety from alcohol on May 5, 2017.  At that time 6 years ago, she made a happy decision to join the St. Leo’s Catholic church in Pipestone.
Kris enjoyed watching the Animal Planet, and she supported the ASPCA.  She loved visiting the Grotto at West Bend, Trinity Heights in Sioux City and the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls. Her first love was her children and grandchildren and the time she could spend with.  Kris’s door was always open to those in need.   In her younger years she loved writing (especially poems) and was always wanting to read to it an open ear.
