Jean Rose (Diamond) Krause Obituary
Jean Rose Krause was born January 9, 1926 to James and Jennie Diamond, and passed away November 1st at the Washington County Greenhouse Home. 
Jean grew up northeast of Akron.  There she helped on the family farm.  She attended Akron schools and during her high school years she boarded in town, she graduated in 1944.  After high school she worked at the Washington County Court House. She met and married John Krause in November of 1952.
In 1965 the family moved to Oregon, returning to Colorado in 1974.
Jean Rose spent her time raising children,  gardening, painting, quilting, and was involved with the Star of the Sea Church and Altar Society in Oregon and Saint Peter's in Fleming, Co.
She had an adventurous spirit.  She enjoyed taking the kids on weekend outings, exploring the northwest coastal areas.  She also liked to travel and was able to see the Canadian Rockies, Italy and Ireland.  
While in Oregon the family often made the trip to Colorado during the harvest season.  On the way, Jean made sure we took a new or scenic route even though it may have taken twice as long.  
When they returned to Colorado in 1974, they made their home in the Lone Star area. 
Jean was preceded in death by her parents, James and Jennie Diamond, brothers James and Robert, sisters Margaret Story, Rita Schrader, and Dolly Mollohan. 
She is survived by her children, Kathy Alfiere (Jan), Kevin (Kim), Susan Watson (Richard), Regina Padula (Bob), Matthew (Judi), Daniel, Terrence (Lisa), William (Judy) and Thomas (Danna). She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
