Kristie Lyn Brosious

November 17th, 1963March 26th, 2019

Kristie Brosious was born in Gillette Wyoming at 4:05 PM on November 17th, 1963 and passed away from us due to end-stage kidney disease and respiratory failure on March 26th , 2019 at 6:01 AM.  During her Junior year in High School she contracted a crippling immune disorder, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which has been the cause of many disabilities over the years, although anyone who knew Kristie knows that she lived her life with few complaints, with joy and grace and humor and a lot of love and fierce loyalty for her family and friends and the Denver Broncos.  

Kristie has been the center of our family for so long that we’re not quite sure how we’ll get by without

her to hold all of us together. She leaves behind brothers Joe, Troy, and Brian; nephews Mason and Connor; nieces Nicole, Hannah, and Shylene; aunts Margie, Margaret, and Jeanie; uncle Joe and wife Sandy; her much loved sisters-in-law Lynn, Andi, and Lorisa; cousins Brad and Jack, Gay Lynn and Matt, Kathy and Jim, Teresa, Gretchen and Rachel, Tahnee, Dave and Steve, Kayla, Bryan, and Mackenzie; her father and stepmother Monty and Amy Brosious; her mother and stepfather Alta and Dennis Drumm, her dear friends Ben Raznick, Mary Ann, Natalie, Monica and Chrisi, Avis; and many wonderful friends at Walnut Place and Imagine; her doctors Alicia Maltzman, Heather Pujet, Rick Halterman and nurses at Western Nephrology and The Kidney Center on Main and Boulder DaVita. 

Kristie graduated from Douglas County High School and lived independently at Walnut Place in Boulder from 1991 to the present.  Over the years she did volunteer work for EFAA, the Boulder Humane society, Colorado Food Share, and others.  Later, although she became less mobile, she remained active with Out and About, Imagine, and trips in her chair to Pearl Street Mall and Starbucks.  It seemed to us that she knew every barista in Boulder! 

We love you and miss you, beloved daughter and sister.  Go with God and Mimi and Grandma Knapp.

My deepest sympathy for this most difficult time. Please find comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father hears and is listening to your prayers for comfort. He too recognizes death as an enemy (1Cor. 15:26) and truly understands the depth of your grief and loss. "God is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.”—Psalm 34:18, 19. Again I am so sorry for your loss.
