Prayer Emblem

Ann V. Krug, age 102, of Dubuque, and formerly of Durango, Iowa, was called home peacefully at 2:45 p.m., on Tuesday, July 25, 2017, at Hawkeye Care Center. To honor Ann's life, funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m., on Saturday, July 29, 2017, at Ss. Peter and Paul Church, 5131 Sherrill Road, Sherrill, Iowa, with Rev. Noah J. Diehm officiating. To celebrate Ann's life, family and friends may visit from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., on Friday, July 28, 2017, at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street, where there will be a parish scripture wake service held at 3:30 p.m., and the rosary will also be recited by Ann's family that evening at 6:30 p.m. Family and friends may also visit at Ss. Peter and Paul Church in Sherrill, on Saturday, July 29, 2017, from 9:30 a.m., until the time of services at 10:30 a.m. Burial will be in Ss. Peter and Paul Cemetery, Sherrill, Iowa.

Ann was born on the family farm on December 13, 1914, in Durango, Iowa, daughter of John and Mary (Breitbach) Krug.

Ann received her education at Ss. Peter and Paul School and went on to spend her entire life tending to the family farm, where she truly embraced being surrounded by her large, loving family. She found great joy in living a simple life; especially reaping the bountiful harvest of her family's labors through gardening, canning, cooking and baking. Ann was a devout Catholic who was a lifelong, and proud member of Ss. Peter and Paul Church, their Rosary Society, and an A.C.C.W. member. Ann was undeniably blessed with over 102 years, here on earth, to share her love for God's creation and her fellow man. Sadly, we will definitely miss our dear, and last Aunt; but we accept that her century long journey here has been completed. Thankfully, it surely brings us peace to know that Ann is now able to spread her beautiful angel wings and once again spend her days within the presence of her Parents, and 13 Brothers and Sisters. Job well done Thy good and faithful servant; may God keep you safe and comfortable in His loving arms until we meet again.
