Obituary


Edwin Edward Krause

Edwin "Ed" Edward Krause of Mount Vernon, WA passed away on Monday, March 14, 2011.
He was born in Amboy, Minnesota on May 19, 1919 where he spent his early years. He moved to Peoria, Illinois in his late teens and worked in heavy equipment manufacturing. He served in the US Navy during World War II until 1946 and then settled in Seattle, WA.
In 1952 he purchased a small dairy farm in the Machias/Lake Roesiger area northeast of Snohomish, WA. During the next 15 years he expanded the herd and upgraded the farm and was active in the Dairymen's Association. In 1967, as his family was mostly grown, he sold off the dairy stock and part of the land.
Ed then ran a newspaper delivery service covering the Lake Stevens, Granite Falls, Machias, and Lake Roesiger communities until he retired in the mid 1980's. In 1979 Ed married Evelyn "Eve" Holiman and moved to Marysville, WA.
After retiring, Ed and Eve enjoyed fishing and traveling in their fifth-wheel across the western United States. Since two of his sons are commercial fisherman in Alaska, they also spent time in Alaska sport and commercial fishing with his sons.
Ed is survived by his wife, Eve, and children, Ginny (Krause) Mullen, Lee (Tina) Krause, Volney (Linda) Smith, Viston (Susann) Smith, Karen (Craig) McClure, Mike (Nancy) Holiman, Chuck (Melissa Holiman), and Kari Torfin; 18 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
Ed was preceded in death by his son, Dale Krause, in 1979.
A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m., Friday, March 25 at Ebenezer Lutheran Church, 2111 117th NE Avenue, Lake Stevens.
Memorials may be given to Hospice of the Northwest, 819 South 13th Street, Mount Vernon, WA 98274.
