Dara Ann KlopfensteinJuly 20, 1957 ~ June 13, 2018 (age 60)
Dara was born in Bronx, NY to Jackie (Boylan) Jerkins and Anthony Frandina. She graduated from Cardinal Spellman High School and the State University of New York-Albany prior to moving to Colorado Springs in search of the great West.
She met the love of her life, Jack, while working at Current, Inc.. and proceeded to take on the next great adventure of motherhood. Dara dedicated herself to her work at the Pikes Peak Library District, and to being a lifelong learner.
Despite battling Multiple Sclerosis for decades, Dara never complained and continued to smile and enjoy life. She was a wonderful mother, daughter, wife, niece, cousin, and friend.
She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones at the age of 60.
She is survived by her husband, Jack; her daughter, Toni; her stepchildren, Eric, and Alena; her stepmother, Dorothy; her mother-in-law, Miriam; her aunts, Rose, Mary, and Chris; her uncle, Joe; and so many more she loved dearly.
She will be missed by all.
Donations can be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in her honor.
The memorial service will be held at Beth-El Mennonite Church (4625 Ranch Dr, Colorado Springs, CO, 80918) on July 7th, at 10am.
