Marie Francis Krampotich
Marie F. Krampotich, age 60 of Kelly Lake, MN, passed away after a long battle with
cancer on October 14, 2021, at her home surrounded by family. She was born on July 15,
1961, in Minneapolis, MN to George and Teresa (Acker) Sarna. Marie graduated from
Minneapolis North High School and started work as a bank teller in the cities. On March
2, 1990, she married the love of her life Jack Krampotich. They were married 31 years
and together 41 years as they traveled back and forth from the cities to see one another.
In true iron range fashion, they met at the Hibbing Racetrack. Marie started working in
Hibbing at the Merchants and Miners Bank which eventually became Wells Fargo. She
started as a teller and eventually became the supervisor of all the bank tellers. Marie was
all about her family and loved hosting at their house in Kelly Lake. She especially loved
having her family over for Sunday dinners, Thanksgiving and Easter. Marie had a huge
heart and was nothing but caring and generous. Her catholic faith was very important to
her and she was always there for anybody who needed help. Marie was an animal lover,
especially dogs and horses. She had many fond memories of working at a horse stable.
