It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kris Diane Szudajski, beloved wife, stepmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Kris passed away suddenly on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 in Tucson, AZ.
Kris was such a joy to be around. We will remember Kris for her boundless energy, her beautiful mind, her love of family and friends, and her heart of gold. Kris spent most of her 40 year nursing career as a pediatric intensive care nurse. She was most proud of her work at Texas Children's Hospital where Kris, as a baseball fan, would put it, "Got Called Up to the Bigs." Everyone, everyone, everyone loved Kris.
Kris is survived by her husband, Tom Szudajski, her brother, Jon (Debbie) Konings and many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
Kris was preceded in death by her parents, Ivan and Jane Konings, her brother, Lee Konings, her sister, Jan (Jim) Barcz, and her stepson, Matt Szudajski.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that honorariums be made to Hope Animal Shelter, PO Box 1996, Cortaro, AZ 85652. www.hopeanimalshelter.net
A celebration of life will take place in Milwaukee, WI in December.
