Eunice Louise Kraus, age 86, of Guttenberg, Iowa died Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at the Guttenberg Care Center. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at St. John's Lutheran Church in Guttenberg. Rev. Shane Anderson officiated at the funeral and interment was at the Ceres Cemetery in Guttenberg.

Eunice was born on the family farm near Osterdock on January 18, 1930, the daughter of Herbert and Cora (Morarend) Lundt. She 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 her home. On August 22, 1950 Eunice was united in marriage with Lincoln Kraus at St. John's Lutheran Church in Guttenberg.

Lincoln and Eunice tilled their land and managed a successful farm near Osterdock while raising their 10 children. How she managed to take care of her children while working on the farm and managing her home is a feat many can not 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 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. She 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. It is safe to say 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) Reuter, Paul Kraus, and Mark Kraus; 18 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; two sisters-in-law Janet Lundt, Ivanelle Kraus, and many other relatives and friends.

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