Obituary

            Thomas “Tom” William Kraus, age 71, of Osterdock, IA, died Wednesday, November 2, 2022, at the Guttenberg Municipal Hospital.  He was born on June 10, 1951, the son of Lincoln and Eunice (Lundt) Kraus. 

            He loved to attend family gatherings. He practically lived outside as a dedicated life-long farmer. In addition to farming, he made many friends while working at Kann Manufacturing and Nutrien Ag Solutions. He was an active volunteer with the Northeast Iowa Farm Antique Association, Ceres Church and Cemetery Board. He was very active in various church committees at St. John’s. Over the last few years, he enjoyed driving school bus, as he was just as much a grandpa to those children as he was to his own. Anything he could find to “tinker” with, fix, or design himself was enjoyment.

            Tom will be forever loved and cherished by his wife of over 46 years, Marcia; children, Dan (Shelly) Kraus, John (Sharon) Kraus, Jenny (Bob) Abbott & Sarah (Jesse) Harbaugh; 7 grandchildren, Makayla, Kyle Kraus, Keisha (DJ) Anderegg, Trevor Harbaugh (Lindsey Kramer), Avery, Chase, Zander Harbaugh. He was blessed with 4 great grandchildren, Katelyn, Anna May Anderegg, Grayson Harbaugh. Yet to bless this family is another grandchild and great grandchild.  Siblings, Karen (John) Anderegg, Diane Kraus, David (Renae) Kraus, Mary Van Houten, Ruth (Leon) Rueter, Paul Kraus, Mark Kraus Sister-in-law Sally Henkes and many other relatives and friends.

            Tom was preceded in death by his parents; Father-in-law, Mother-in-law, 3 brothers, Daniel Kraus in 1969, John Kraus in 1976 and Curtis in 2021, Brother-in-law Kevin Van Houten in 2019, Sister-in-law Diane Henkes 2001 and granddaughter Kendra Harbaugh 1993.
