Kristin Lynn “Kristie” Konsoer

MIDDLETON–Kristin Lynn “Kristie” Konsoer, age 51, peacefully returned home to God on Dec. 5, 2021, after living over nine years with breast cancer.

I was born on May 30, 1970, in Madison, the daughter of Donald and Carol (Christensen) Konsoer and grew up in Middleton. I loved Sunday visits with grandma on the farm outside of Wisconsin Dells. School was also one of my favorite places. I loved learning so much that I would often play school when I got home each day. I was a lifelong reader, writer, and learner. 

Over the years, I was fortunate to have traveled widely throughout the US and visited 26 countries. Family vacations held many favorite memories for me. Disney World, national parks–Yellowstone in particular–and Fish Creek in Door County are forever in my heart.
