Kristine Kay Wolfe (Cricket) age 50 passed away 5:00 AM Saturday July 29th on the 9th floor of the Mayo Hospital, La Crosse, Wisconsin. She fought the good fight but lung cancer won out in the end. She was surrounded by her loving family for the last 3 days of her life in the hospital.
Kristine was born to George Wolfe and Darlene (Willms) Wolfe on February 7, 1967 in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Kris was formally living in Osseo, MN for over 20 years she had recently relocated to La Crosse to be near her Mother Darlene and Sister Lisa. She spent the last 5 months living with her mother where she received care from the Mayo Hospice staff.
Kris loved to ride her Harley, fish, bike, decorate and repurpose old furniture and housewares. She loved dogs especially labs and she had a green thumb; could make anything grow!!!
Kris is survived by her Mother Darlene Hutchins; Sister Lisa La Crosse, Brother Jeff (Mary) Mosinee, Brother Mark, fiancée (Michelle Parker) Portage, Niece Hayley Wolfe, Portage and Nephew Elijah Wolfe, Portage. Kris had many loving cousins and aunts and uncles that reside mostly in Wisconsin. Many of her loving friends from the Minneapolis area came to visit her to offer their love and support over the past months.
Kris was preceded in death by her Father George and her black lab Ty who was her best friend and constant companion.
Her family would like to say a special thanks to Dr. Hilary Bingol, palliative care doctor Mayo, the nursing staff and doctors on the 9thfloor, Mayo. Huge thanks to the Loving Hospice Staff, Mayo. We will miss their smiling faces and compassionate hearts. Thanks to Lisa and her pet therapy and service dog Sailor.
