Kristina "Tina" M. Kraft

Kristina “Tina” Kraft, 55 of Minot formerly of Devils Lake, ND passed away on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident near Sawyer, ND.

Kristina Marie, was born on February 12, 1964 at Devils Lake, ND the daughter of Lawrence and Mary (Martinson) Kraft. She was raised and educated in Devils Lake, attending Devils Lake High School. 

She met her first love Kirk Broughton as teenagers and they welcomed their first daughter, Stephonie in 1980. They moved to Arizona in 1987 and were united in marriage in 1987 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their second daughter Kimberly was born in 1990.  In 1992, the family moved back to North Dakota to be near family and the raise their girls. 

To know Tina was to love Tina. Her infectious laugh and sparkling eyes were what you noticed first about her.  Tina worked for several years as a waitress and once Tina met you, you became an instant friend. 

2018 brought change for Tina as she moved to Minot to embark on new adventures and a new job. Tina was employed by Dot’s Pretzels (a job she loved) until her death. 

Tina enjoyed being in the outdoors on a nice sunny day, going to concerts, playing darts and all things “Bret Michaels”.

Tina’s favorite pastime was spending time with her two best friends, her daughters Stephonie and Kimberly, laughing and creating so many memories that will forever be cherished.

Tina is survived by her loving family. Her daughters Stephonie Broughton (Justin Feist) and Kimberly (Josh) Anderson all of Fargo; mother Mary Kraft, Devils Lake; brothers Kurtis Kraft, Kevin (Kim) Kraft and Karl (Brenda) Kraft all of Devils Lake; sister-in-law Laurie Roed also of Devils Lake; father of her daughters Kirk Broughton, Thief River Falls, MN; numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, life-long friend Rita Nelson and special friends Curtis DeVeny.
