Eunice Louise (Lundt) Kraus, 86, of Guttenberg, died Wednesday, March 30, 2016, at the Guttenberg Care Center.

Visitation was Tuesday, April 5, at Tuecke-Allyn Funeral Home, Guttenberg, and one hour before services at the church.

Funeral services were Wednesday, April 6, at St. John's Lutheran Church, Guttenberg, conducted by Rev. Shane Anderson.

Interment was at Ceres Cemetery, Guttenberg.

Eunice was born on the family farm near Osterdock on Jan. 18, 1930, the daughter of Herbert and Cora (Morarend) Lundt. 

Eunice was baptized at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Guttenberg and later confirmed there as well. She received her education from the country school which was close to home. On Aug., 22, 1950, Eunice was united in marriage with Lincoln Kraus at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Guttenberg. Together, they tilled their land and managed a successful farm near Osterdock while raising their children. How she managed to take care of her children while working on the farm and managing her home is a feat many can’t fathom, but Eunice never missed a beat. She was certainly a hard working woman and a lady of faith. She was a lifetime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Guttenberg and served on the Ladies Aid Committee. Eunice was devoted to her husband, family and her faith. She spent countless hours sewing, mending and doing embroidery work. She was famous for her work in the kitchen. Always had baked goods on hand and a cup of coffee to go with it. She was especially known for her homemade bread, cookies, coffee cakes and cinnamon rolls but overall was a wonderful cook and baker, nobody left Eunice’s home hungry. 

Eunice will be forever loved and cherished by her children, Thomas (Marcia) Kraus, Karen (John) Anderegg, Curtis (Diane) Kraus, David (Renae) Kraus, Mary (Kevin) Van Houten, Ruth (Leon) Rueter, Paul Kraus and Mark Kraus; 18 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; two sisters-in-law, Janet Lundt, Ivanelle Kraus and many other relatives and friends. 

Eunice was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Lincoln in 1987; two sons, John in 1976 and Daniel in 1969; one brother, William Lundt in 2010.

Memorials can be sent to either the Ceres Cemetery Association, 27641 Hwy 52, Guttenberg, IA 52052 or Camp Courageous 12007 190th St., Monticello, IA 52310.
