Mary M. Krause died Aug. 12, 2017, at Westward Heights Care Facility in Lander, Wyoming. She was 95.

Mary was born Jan. 29, 1922, in Greybull to Earl J. Hensley and Sarah Vance Hensley. They moved to Powell where Mary was educated; she lived the rest of her life in Powell.

On Aug. 13, 1938, Mary married Loyal J. Henrichs. They moved to the East Willwood and farmed until Loyal passed away in June of 1963. Two boys were born to this union.
Mary always had a big garden. After selling the farm, she moved back into Powell.

In June of 1965 Mary married Wayne Krause. He also lived on East Willwood where they made their home until Wayne retired. Wayne also had three boys.

After they retired, Mary and Wayne moved to Powell. They lived at Rocky Mountain Manor for a while, then moved to The Heartland. Mary and Wayne were the first residents to move into The Heartland, and they enjoyed their time there.

They spent a log of time camping, fishing and traveling around with the Good Sam Club. They also loved to dance and play bingo. Mary was a member of the Methodist Church and the Rebekah Lodge. She worked her way through the chairs of the Rebekahs, eventually becoming Noble Grand. She was also a member of Whistle Creek Ladies, as well as a Willwood ladies group. She loved her grandkids and great-grandkids, and the pretty flowers she always grew.
