Martin Hans Krause


It is with sorrow in our hearts that

we announce the passing of our

father, Martin Hans Krause at his home in Kelowna, B. C. on June

19, 2013.  Our father was born on March 29, 1929 in Ohlau, Germany, son of Hans Hermann Ernst Krause and Maria (Christ) Krause; brother of Sabine Greiff, all of whom passed away before him.

He was a very energetic man with

a strong, independent spirit, an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hiking, camping, boating and fishing and who had a deep love and appreciation for

nature.  He was a man of strong determination who lived

by the strength of his convictions and beliefs.  In times

of trouble and uncertainty he was dependable and

strong-willed in seeing it through. 

Martin realized his dream of building his own house. 

He found serenity in his painting of landscapes and natural beauty.  Some of his paintings are on display at the homes of friends and in public venues, and they remain a testament to his memory. 

He is survived by our mother, Lissy (Hidriewicz) Krause

of Ottawa, Ontario; his sons, Horst Krause and his wife,

Carole of Ottawa, Ontario, and Wolfram Krause and his wife, Christine of Fulshear, Texas; four grandchildren:

Jason Krause of Toronto, Ontario, Kristopher Krause of

Ottawa, Ontario, Karl Krause of Aurora, Illinois, Heidemarie Krause of Parkersburg, West Virginia, and one great

grandchild, Ava Savay Krause of Aurora, Illinois. 

Last respects can be paid to our father at the viewing from 10:00 am to  1:00 pm on Tuesday June 25, 2013 Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, B.C.

All of us will keep him in our hearts always.
