Kristi Lynn Watkins
October 5, 1963 - January 27, 2013
Kristi Lynn Watkins, 49 years young, peacefully went home to be with our Lord on Jan. 27, 2013.
She was born in Moorhead, Minn. on Oct. 5, 1963. She grew up in Halstad, Minn. She moved to Payson in 2006 to be near her family. She worked in nursing homes and loved the elderly. She also worked at Many’s Kids with children she loved as her own. She had a passionate heart for the less fortunate, the poor in spirit and her sweet Steve, the love of her life. They loved long Harley rides, their “Kids” (their dogs), and great hikes.
Ms. Watkins is survived by Steve Ellis; Chuck and Glenora Hinze, parents; siblings Kim Anderson and Rod, Bob Onsgard, Connie Singa and Joe; many nieces and nephews and aunts and uncles and cousins — all who love her so.
She was preceded in death by her father, Roger Onsgard, and stepfather, Gene Johnson.
“Kristi had no degree, no fancy letters behind her name, but the love of Jesus in her heart, child of the King of Kings, Jesus, with loving arms received her,” writes her family.
A celebration of her life will be at the Rock of Ages in Payson at 1 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 31.
