Kristy retired from Cedar Mountain in 2011 to take care of her grandchildren. Kristy was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Morgan where she served as a Sunday school teacher and a member of the education committee.

Kristy is survived by her husband Tom of Morgan; daughters Rachel (David) Krenz of Morgan, and Nicole Engel (special friend Bruce Bolkema) of Marshall; grandchildren Kylie and Levi Krenz; and sisters Gail (Scott) Bartush of Victoria, and Sue (Paul) Willems of Norwood Young America.
