Kathy Fister went out with a bang and to be with our Lord Jesus Christ on Thursday, July 4, 2019. She was born February 21, 1948 in Owatonna, MN to Joe and Nellie Koldenhoven. She grew up in Blooming Prairie, MN with her sisters Mary VerHey, Theresa Newgard, Joan Konyndyk and Grace VanMekran; brothers Hank, Daryl, and Jerry Koldenhoven.
Kathy raised her three girls Kimberly, Sherri and Karri in Orlando FL and moved to Colorado Springs in 1986. She met Paul Fister and they were married on September 9, 1995.
Kathy enjoyed many things but her true joy in life was gardening and sewing. She had many adventures with her sweetheart Paul, fishing and camping several times a year. She could hardly wait for spring each year so she could play in the dirt with her daughters.
She's survived by her husband Paul Fister, daughters Kim and her husband Jose Gonzalez, Sherri and her husband Robert Gonzales, Karri and her husband Jim Zombakis, Mark and his wife Kim Fister, Cathy and her husband Dave Easton, brother Jerry Koldenhoven, sisters Joan Konyndyk & Theresa Newgard, brother in-law Jim Fister, sister in-laws Mary and Diane Koldenhoven, her many grandchildren, great grandchil
