Kristin Marie Bacha was born May 1, 1974, in Streator, Illinois, the daughter of William and Mary Lou (Warfield) Shaffer. She grew up and attended school in Streator, graduating from the Streator High School in 1992. She went on to attend Illinois Valley Community College.

On July 23, 1994, Kristin was united in marriage to Marc Bacha at St. Stephen Catholic Church in Streator, IL. After their marriage they lived in Streator for a short time before being transferred for work. In 2000, they moved to Algona where they settled and raised their family. Kristin stayed home with the kids until they were in school and then she went back to work in Medical Records at Hancock County Health Systems in Britt. She continued working until her diagnosis and health just did not allow her to anymore.

Kristin wanted nothing more in life than to be the best MOTHER she could be to her children. She enjoyed spending time with her family; vacationing, especially on a beach somewhere and supporting and cheering on her children in all their activities at Seton and most recently at Bishop Garrigan High School.

Kristin died Sunday, February 14, 2021, at her home in Algona, surrounded by her loving family. She was 46.

She is survived by her husband, Marc; children, Drew and Emma Bacha all of Algona; parents, William and Mary Lou Shaffer of Streator, IL; mother-in-law and step-father-in-law, Mary Beth and Jack Cunningham of Streator, IL; sisters, Michelle (William) Shepard of Oglesby, IL; Rebecca (Neil) Sprindis of St. Charles, IL; nephews and niece, Joey Shepard, Riley and Kaitlyn Sprindis; grandmother, Hazel Fellows of Streator, IL, and other cousins, aunts and uncles.

She was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Brad Bacha; maternal grandparents, Albert and Rose Mary Warfield; paternal grandfathers, Kenneth Shaffer and Gordon Fellows.
