Dec 18, 1938 - Feb 8, 2021 Nancy Kraus (n‚e Jacque), a 53-year resident of Torrance, California, passed away on Monday, February 8, 2021 in Torrance. Born 1938 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Nancy was 82. She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Frank; her sister Kathy Ertl (Don); her sons Jeff (Carol), Jack (Connie), Jayson (Marie), and Jed (Shari); and four grandchildren. Nancy was always up for an adventure, from traveling the country in their RV, to boat rides down a river, to riding roller coasters with her grandchildren. When not on the road she was busy gardening and staying connected with family/friends through visits, cards, and notes. Her greatest joy was gathering the family together and sharing her love. Plans for services will be made at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. James Catholic Church, Redondo Beach. Please go to Lighthouse Memorials & Receptions' website to send the family a message and share memories.

Nancy was a wonderful co-worker at El Camino College for many years. I will always remember her sharing funny stories about her family and her RV travels. Many happy lunches with the ECC gang. She was a wonderful mother, wife and friend. My deepest sympathy to Frank and the "boys".
