Mary Ellen Krebs
Mary Ellen Krebs, 77, of DeWitt died Thursday, March 27, 2014, at Westwing Place, DeWitt.

Friends and family may gather in remembrance 3:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, in The Bistro at Carson Celebration of Life Center in Maquoketa.  Cremation has taken place.

Mary Ellen Krebs was born Nov. 22, 1936, in Iowa City. Her parents were Charles and Margaret Thiede Krebs.

Mary was disabled and had lived in several care facilities, the last of which was Community Care in DeWitt since 2001.  She had worked at the sheltered workshop at Community Care until her retirement and had attended Evangelical Free Church in DeWitt.

Mary enjoyed a variety of activities and hobbies. She had participated in Special Olympics and has numerous blue ribbons and a first-place trophy in bowling. She attended Camp Courageous and had been a part of the Truth Singers and PEP activities. She enjoyed eating out, cake, coffee, having her fingernails and toenails painted and watching television. One of her favorite activities was to go "downtown."  Her favorite words were "Hello" and "Honey."

Those left to honor Mary's memory include all of her friends at Community Care and special friends Cindi Kuehl, Megan Tobey and Marcy Trimble. She was preceded in death by her parents.

In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, memorials may be made to Camp Courageous of Iowa.
