Ms. Sylvia Lynn Krause, 68, died on Jan. 10, from pancreatic cancer.
Ms. Krause had lived in Conyers for seven years. She was born in Monroe, N.C., and moved to New Orleans at a young age. After 32 years, she retired from Mission Hospital in New Orleans. She lived there until Hurricane Katrina destroyed her home, in 2005. Her beloved mother Claris Austin Krause, was in hospice care when Katrina hit and died during the storm.
Her surviving loved ones are her sister and brother-in-law Mary and Mike Park, and nephew Gabriel Park of New Orleans; dear friend Jim Mergy, cousin Deborah Manget, both of Conyers; and cousin Aloyce Shaw of Stone Mountain.
A memorial service will be held at the St. Pius X Catholic Church (date to be determined), where she was a faithful member.
