Kristine Marie Wagner, 56, passed away on Sunday, November 10, 2019 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
Kris was born on June 8, 1963 to Tony and Martha Cookro. She attended St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, where she met the love of her life, John Wagner. After graduating in 1981, Kris and John married in 1983 and went on to raise five beautiful children together. She adored her five grandkids and always strived to be the 'fun Nana.' She succeeded.
