Katherine Marie (Kvaternick) Kistner, beloved matriarch of her family, passed peacefully at her home, with loved ones, on December 27, 2018 at the age of 79.

Born to John Ivan Kvaternick and Rose Marie (Oberster) Kvaternick on August 5, 1939 in Crested Butte, Colorado, Katherine was one of eight siblings.

Katherine is preceded in death by six sisters and one brother; by her husband, Albert Thomas Kistner; by a son, Joseph Kistner; and by a grandson, Daniel Kistner. She is survived by two sons: Robert Kistner of Stafford, Virginia and Albert Kistner and his wife, Christina Kistner, of Stafford, Virginia; by a daughter, Katherine Kistner-Childs and her husband, Jerry Childs, of Holiday, Florida; by six grandchildren: Adrienne (Mann) Furr and her husband, Brian of Spotsylvania, Virginia; Carrie Kistner Murphy and her husband, Rob, of Fredericksburg, Virginia; AJ Kistner of Stafford, Virginia; Jerika Kistner and Jaden Childs, both of Holiday, Florida and Jacob Kistner of Stafford, Virginia; and by three great-grandchildren, with one on the way.
