Kristin was born in Peoria, IL on September 2, 1969, daughter of Robert and Genevieve (Teal) Lorenz. She graduated from Appleton East High School, and then attended the UW Fox Valley. Kristin’s love of photography led to her chosen profession in digital imaging at Phopar in Appleton, and to become a photographer’s assistant for Steve Bartell in Oshkosh. She continued her studies in graphic design and website design at Southeast Iowa Community College. Kristin married Randy Broadwater on July 2, 1999 in Appleton. Kristin enjoyed dancing and laughing with her friends. She loved to ride motorcycles, and would like nothing better than being on the back of Randy’s bike on her way to Sturgis. Kristin was a free spirit with an easy smile who had a zest for life and loved adventure and new experiences. She is survived by her husband Randy; her parents Robert and Genevieve, Appleton; her brother, Michael Lorenz, Appleton; her sister, Susan (Eric) De Groot, Pewaukee, WI; her godmother and aunt, Geraldine Frew, Glendale Heights, IL; and her uncle and godfather, Paul Lorenz, Falmouth, ME.
