Isabel P. Krause, 78, of Durham, North Carolina, formerly of Summit, New Jersey and Kenilworth, Illinois, died on July 27 at Croasdaile Village in Durham. She was born on January 28, 1940 in New York but moved shortly thereafter to Kenilworth, Il. She was the daughter of the Honorable and Mrs. Allin H. Pierce. She attended Sears School in Kenilworth and New Trier High School for one year until her father was appointed a Federal Judge on the United States Tax Court, and the family moved to Washington, D. C. There, she completed high school and then entered Smith College. After graduating from Smith, Isabel lived in New York City where she was employed by Time, Inc. She then moved to Switzerland for a year, and upon returning to the United States, she settled in Chicago where she worked in the Trust Department of the First National Bank of Chicago (now JP Morgan Chase). After a number of years in Chicago, Isabel moved to the San Francisco area where she met her future husband, Norman H. Krause. They were married in 1979 and moved to Summit, New Jersey. During retirement years, they lived in Durham. Isabel is survived by her husband of nearly 40 years, her brother, Allin H. Pierce, Jr. of Berkeley, California and her nephew, Wyeth Pierce of Walnut Creek, California. She is also survived by two great nephews and a great niece.
