Obituary

Nancy Ann Krauss died in her Crofton home on October 11, 2017, where she lived since 1982. Her husband, Bernard Krauss, was with her when she died. Nancy had been fighting COPD for several years, but the effects intensified in May resulting in her death.
Nancy was born in Paterson, New Jersey to Nicholas and Gertude Giella on April 8, 1951. After growing up and attending the William Paterson College School of Nursing, Nancy joined the U.S. Army, where she rose to the rank of Captain before leaving active duty. After the Army, Nancy worked as a Sussex County NJ visiting nurse. When the family moved to Maryland in 1982, Nancy completed graduate studies to earn a Master’s Degree in Family Studies followed by additional Graduate work in statistics and demography. Nancy worked as a Health Statistician for the CDC until she retired in 2008. After retirement, Nancy taught at a local college for a few years before deciding to focus on her hobby of cooking.
Nancy is survived by her husband of 43 years, Bernard Krauss, her daughters Dana and Elizabeth, son in law Eric Smythe, granddaughters Brook and Amelia, and grandsons Isaac and Noah.
