Elizabeth K. Kro (Davis)
MAPLE GROVE, MN – Elizabeth K. Kro (Davis), age 37, passed away on September 10, 2021, at home surrounded by her loving family. Liz fully, graciously, and gratefully lived life even with cancer for more than 5 years, inspiring so many others to live the same way.
Liz was born in Marquette, MI on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 1983. She grew up in Marquette. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota and her Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan. She worked as a medical and hospice social worker in the Twin Cities area until her health forced her to retire.
On June 20, 2009, she married the love of her life, Nathan Kro, and they made their home in Maple Grove, MN. They have one son, Henrik, age 6. Liz was a great planner of events and adventures for her family- especially for Henrik.
Liz was very well known for her skills as a knitter. Many of her family and friends have cherished items that she knitted for them. Her knitting won many awards, especially her shawls. Two years in a row her shawls were chosen by the Knitter’s Guild as best in show at the Minnesota State Fair.
Liz is survived by her husband, Nate and her son, Henrik; her parents, Mary and Bill Davis; her brother, Matt Davis; her aunt, Jan Kokko; her uncle, Tom (Jane) Davis; her aunt, Judi (Doug) Lockhart; cousins, Kathie Lockhart, Kate Marie (Brent) Sawyer, Patrick (Rich) Davis; mother-in-Law, Deanna (Paul) Nagel, father-in-Law, Marlowe (Ann Mishler) Kro, brother-in-Law, Matthew (Kristin) Kro, and nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Jake and Irene Kokko and Arnold and Dorothy Davis, and her cousin, Greg Lockhart.
