Kirstin Weerts, age 47, resident of Shorewood WI, lost her third battle with cancer on May 14th 2020. She passed away peacefully at home in the company of her mother and father. Kirstin, an employee at the Milwaukee Public Museum for 21+ years, worked in the candy shop in the Streets Of Old Milwaukee for most of her career. She was an expert on the exhibit, and on old fashioned candy, and would regale her customers with facts about both if they asked nicely (sometimes even if they didn't ask at all). In her previous career, Kirstin was Bingo The Clown at the Ground Round restaurant franchise, and was a master balloon animal creator, and general merrymaker, for the children. Kirstin was an amazing jewelry maker, and had a degree in Jewelry Fabrication and Design at MATC.
Most people will remember Kirstin for her kindness, positivity, and giving nature. If Kirstin brought you a gift, it would likely be followed by three or four more. Kirstin loved murder mysteries, and was a huge fan of Murder She Wrote. Kirstin adored animals, and watched as many animal themed TV shows and movies as she could get her hands on. Her presence in this world shall be missed, and the universe will be an emptier place with her passing. Kirstin is survived by her mother, Bille Weerts, and father, Dennis Weerts, as well as her brother Matthew Weerts, and her nephew and niece Jacob and Ava Weerts. Kirstin also leaves behind her aunt and uncle, Brian and Peggy Weerts, her aunt, Cheryl Fuller, and her cousins, Melanie Weerts, Jessica Seidl, Jonathan Weerts, and Michael Weerts.
Due to the tragedy of the COVID-19 Pandemic, a celebration of life gathering will be postponed until a safer time can be determined. The family asks that all memorials be sent to either Hunger Task Force or the MACC Fund.
