Kathrin Ann (Hay) Krajcik RN, BSN Born October 12th, 1959 – Passed into eternal life March 30th, 2015 surrounded by her husband - Terry Krajcik, her beloved children - Robin Lynn Krajcik and Terry Krajcik Jr. and her sisters - Sandra Doxtater and Lori (Leese) Stenseng. Further loved and survived by parents - Marlene Haase and Robert (Shari) Hay. Kathi also leaves behind her beloved nieces and nephews - Katherine, Chelsea, and Alex (Sara) Doxtater; Shane Stenseng; Cary, Lee, Becky, Chrissy, Lori, Scott, Sherri, Mark, Jodi, Traci, Matt, Jessica, Jenny, Joel, Carly, and Devon (on the Krajcik side). She was Great-Aunt to Mason Doxtater-Wranik; Carson and Jackson Doxtater, and the Krajcik in-laws; Larry & Carol, Eleanor (Tootie), Judy & Phil, Bonnie, and Liz & Dave. A multitude of friends, colleagues, and a large extended family mourn her loss. She is preceded in death by her grandparents - Esmeralda and Elroy Lutz; Eleanor and Chester Hoehne; Robert and Verna Hay. Kathi's greatest loves were her children, who stood beside her throughout her very courageous battle against leukemia. Her faith in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was never shaken, and she trusted wholly in God's promises and the assurance of everlasting life. After raising her children, Kathi returned to school and became a Registered Nurse. Kathi was an accomplished RN later returning to complete her BSN – graduating at the top of her class. She shared her knowledge, passion and clinical expertise with patients, physicians and colleagues alike and was known to many as a "Momma Bear" – the experienced nurse who mentored and inspired many younger nurses. Even throughout her illness, she participated in the coordination of her care, monitored her response to therapy, and functioned as a valuable member of her own care team. Kathi was a shining example of clinical excellence, commitment to quality care and a strong advocate for her patients, and ultimately for herself. Kathi lived every day of her life to the fullest. She always sought to "live in and appreciate the moment." The lens of her camera captured many of such moments, many of which go unnoticed in the fast pace living of everyday life – the glistening drops of dew on fallen autumn leaves; the magnificence of a rushing river; the beauty of the setting sun. Whenever and wherever a need arose, Kathi was there to lend a helping hand and provide words of encouragement. She gave selflessly of her time and talents as she volunteered countless hours to the annual Glendale Days Fourth of July celebration, which provided family fun and entertainment to more than 40, 000 people each year. Kathi cherished time with family at her cabin, in Eagle River, Wisconsin. Walking in the woods, sitting by the campfire and watching the sunrise over the lakes. She loved music and dancing, working in her garden, crafts and designs and had a great love of cooking. Despite her medical condition, she established "KK Kitchens" a home based premium candy business which introduced her first product – "Tullahs Toffee" which was sold locally this past Christmas season. Kathi lived her life with courage, passion, and integrity living each day as a testament to her love for family, and a shining example of her ever present faith. The world is a better place because of her and she will live on in the hearts and minds in those who had the privilege of knowing and loving her. Visitation for Kathi will be held on Monday, April 6 at Harder Funeral Home from 4:00 PM, until time of service at 7:00 PM.
