Kristi Lynn Wanner

Kristi Lynn Wanner 48, Devoted wife, mom, grandma, daughter, sister, friend, and caregiver passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 10, 2021.

Kristi loved her family immensely. She devoted herself daily to her husband Brad Wanner, ensuring he came home every day to a clean home and a hot meal. She cherished the love they shared for the last 30 years, their adventures together and the time they spent keeping their love for each other alive and growing.

She cherished the title of mom to Curtis and Bo. She was so proud of their successes in life and the men they have grown to be. The boys were and always will be her greatest accomplishment.

Kristi valued her relationship with Rachael. She was so honored to have a daughter. She always talked about the love she had for her and how much she loved having a daughter she could do “girl things” with.

Her grandsons Daniel and Damon lit her soul on fire, she absolutely loved the endless adventures they planned and the fun they had together. There was never a day that her family was not in her heart, in her thoughts, or actions.

Kristi loved the babies she welcomed into her home every day. She took each of them in as if they were her own flesh and blood loving them with everything she had.

She was a teacher, loved to craft, be outdoors, loved her horses, hunting, boating, and camping with her family.

She loved to her core, it didn’t matter who it was she gave freely of her time, her talents, and the beautiful spirit she was blessed with. She knew everyone and everyone was her friend or family regardless of whether they were blood-related or not. She held these relationships close to her.

She will be greatly missed by her family; Lorraine Paulsen (Neill deceased), Brenda (Ken) Stewart, Julie Gallegos, Shawn (Cindee) Paulsen, Sherry (John) Jessop, Rhonda (Bruce) Gaertner, Jerry, and Gloria Wanner, Kim Wanner, Cory (Terri) Wanner, Kelly (Sharee) Wanner, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

A viewing will be held Monday, September 20, 2021, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Leavitt’s Mortuary 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah.

"Friend" is the absolute best way to describe Kiki. Her heart was the kindest and soul was the brightest. The Earth lost something special, but Heaven gained a very bright soul. You will be hopelessly missed. Thank you for always showing your love! Fly high, Friend! Fly high!
