Kelsey Rhea Fritz, 33, passed on August 18, 2021 in Aurora, Colorado. She was born March 3, 1988 in Iowa to Connie Ann (Simpson) and Rhett Brandon Fritz.
She grew up in Des Moines Iowa. She attended the University of Iowa and graduated within 3 years. But Iowa was not big enough to hold her spirit so she moved here to Colorado.
It was in Denver she met and fell in love with her husband, Bradley, in 2015 and together they made the dynamic dual in real form. They were married in Sept of 2019.
Kelsey was a sweet tender child who loved nature and animals. She felt hard and loved harder. She loved swimming and even more, played piano beautifully.
She was the strongest, bravest person her Aunt Karen and others in her family have ever known. She learned about tragedy at a very young age, losing both of her parents prior to the age of 18, but she found the strength to overcome and became an amazing woman fighting for all of us in the world. From teaching children in Spain to helping people in the street to politically working for change in this country. Once she even dragged a dying cat she found on the end of their property into the house and wanted to save it.
Surviving her is her husband, Bradley James Banaszek; her Uncle Roark & Emily Fritz, her Aunt Karen & Lonnie Haskins, her Aunt Rita Simpson & Teri Williamson, and lots of beautiful cousins, and cousins and more cousins, all of who loved her so much and will miss her dearly.
