Jane Bernice Krause

October 29, 1916 — July 24, 2021

Jane B. Krause, age 104, passed away on Saturday, July 24, 2021, at Evergreen Manor in Oshkosh.

Jane was born on October 29, 1916, the daughter of Arthur P. and Elsie A. (Donner) Krause. In 1938, she married Herbert R. Krause in Oshkosh. They were married for 66 years until his death in 2004.

She attended Washington School and graduated from Oshkosh High School in January of 1935. She attended Oshkosh Business College and graduated as a secretary.

She worked in Madison for the DMV and also the Social Security Department as a secretary. She also worked part-time at Miles Kimball Company.

Herb and Jane built their first home in 1950. When they went to the City Hall for permits for water amongst other things, they were told, “No one is ever going to build out there.” It took 7 months to get the permits. Jane always said, “If I knew about the lake flies, we would have never built here.” She loved flower gardening, feeding the birds, and was an avid animal lover.

Jane is survived by her sons: Dennis [Carol] Krause and Terry [Cindy] Krause, grandchildren: Scott [Ida] Krause, Melissa [Ken] Hawley, Neo [Elissa] Skywalker, Dan Briggs, Jennifer [Eric] Winchell, and Angela Fisher, and great-grandchildren: Cory [fiancé Kaitlyn Maratik] Hawley, Adam [Annie] Hawley, Luna Skywalker, Taylor Krause, Ashley Krause, Grace, and Nick Bentley.
