Kelly Ann Albrant, age 57 of Baldwin, WI, died peacefully, surrounded by loved ones on November 1, 2022 at her home. Kelly was born on July 20, 1965 in Pipestone, MN to John and Sandi King. The family resided in Winona, MN, Boscobel, WI, and Henderson, NV before settling in St. Charles, MN where Kelly grew up.

On September 7, 1996, Kelly was united in marriage to Kenneth Albrant in Rochester, MN. The couple was blessed with a son, Nathan, who Kelly lovingly referred to as her “miracle baby sent from Grandma Jo in heaven.” Kelly enjoyed being a mom and loved Nathan with all her heart. Tragedy struck the family when Ken passed away of a heart attack in his sleep in 2013. Kelly held many jobs, but enjoyed working in sales for companies such as ReSound Hearing Aids, R.J.

She possessed a strong and active faith and made many friends through her church community that helped and supported her through life’s challenges and her health. Kelly was a “Warrior Princess” and a “Rockstar” to many. She is loved, and will be missed.
