Betty Jane Krause, age 89, of Faribault, MN and formerly of Menomonie, WI, passed away on Friday, April 3, 2020 at the New Perspective Senior Living Community in Faribault following an extended illness.
Betty was born in Menomonie on November 5, 1930 to Agnes Hannack. Betty married Richard Krause on January 30, 1948. Betty worked several jobs throughout her life retiring from 3M in Menomonie. Betty loved dogs & cats; a stray could always find a spot in her heart. She also loved plants & flowers and could tell you what kind of flower or plant you were looking at better and faster than any botanist.
Betty is survived by a son, Tony (Rita) Krause of Faribault; grandsons, Bryan Davis (Mandy Botke) of St. Petersburg, FL, Jesse Krause (Mary Gillis) of New Castle CO, and Garette Krause (Jorielle Scheer) of Faribault; granddaughter, Nichole Candler (Andrew Mestdagh) of Denver, CO; great grandchildren, Katja, Savannah, Ares, Gunnar, Jade, and Logan.
Betty was preceded in death by her mother, Agnes Hannack; husband, Richard Krause; son, William Krause; and grandson, Cole Krause.
Many thanks to her Angels at New Perspective Senior Living and Moments Hospice for ALL the kind care provided.
Betty will be buried in Evergreen Cemetery Menomonie WI with a small family gathering at a later date.
A quote from Betty is, “I don’t want to bother you!”
