June 19, 1957 - November 13, 2019
Born in Redmond, Oregon
Resided in Bend, Oregon


Kristi T. A. Putschler (Miller), 62, of Bend, Oregon went to rest in the arms of our Lord on November 13, 2019. Kristi was raised in Bend, Oregon and graduated from Bend Senior High in 1975. After living in Delaware and Japan for a few years, she returned to Bend in 1978, where she lived a full life in the community she loved. She was employed by the Deschutes County Road Department until her retirement in 2015.

Kristi was known for her hospitality, quick wit, and kindness. Everyone who entered her circle left with a happy heart and a full belly. She was also a doting mom and grandma (“Gma”). She loved buggy riding in the mountains, tailgating at OSU games, working in her beloved home and garden, and entertaining friends in any setting. She found joy in all things and shared this joy generously. She passed into the glory of heaven with the same strength and grace that she embodied in life.

She is survived by her loving husband, Douglas Charles Putschler; her oldest son, Adam Joseph Michaelis and his wife Angie; two grandchildren, Charlotte and Oliver; her sister, Molly Miller; brother, Rory Miller and his wife, Kami; and her nieces, nephews, cousins, and the rest of her family and friends. She was preceded in death by her beloved son Andrew (Andy) James Michaelis.
