Linn County News
Published March 7, 2018
Mary “Maxine” Krull, age 80, former resident of Blue Mound, Kan., and more recently Olathe, Kan., died Saturday, March 3, 2018, at Homestead Assisted Living. She was born July 30, 1937, in Devon, Kan., the daughter of Earl LeRoy Graham and Nola Marie Pellett Graham.
Maxine was a member of the Community of Christ Church (RLDS). She was a 1955 graduate of Fort Scott High School and a 1957 graduate of Fort Scott Community College.
She married Bobby Gene Krull on Nov. 23, 1958, in Mapleton, Kan. He preceded her in death on Oct. 28, 2003.
Maxine was a hard-working farm wife for many years. She devoted time to raising their four children, Max, Jay Dee, Janet and Brenda, a large family vegetable garden, cooking, canning and helping raise hogs alongside Bob on their farm. Later she became a school bus driver for USD346 for more than 20 years. She drove many activity trips and kept score at volleyball and basketball games.
Maxine was very involved with the Lucky Ridgers 4-H Club over the years as her children grew up, helping in many roles and even going on a 4-H exchange trip. She also loved growing flowers, and when she moved to Olathe, she always had large pots of flowers lining the wall outside her apartment.
Every July, Maxine loved to attend a family church camp near Racine, Mo. When her grandkids came along, she took them as well. She and her youngest daughter Brenda took the grandkids over several summers. Each of the oldest seven grandkids has many memories of church camp with Grandma Maxine and Aunt Brenda attending classes, working in the Lodge, swimming in the spring-fed swimming pool and especially sleeping in the cabins with Grandma reading and telling the kids stories right before “lights out.”
Survivors include Max, his wife Deanna and their children Shelby and April of Blue Mound; Jay Dee, his wife Kathleen and their children Brianna, Brad and Brent of Overland Park, Kan.; Janet and her husband Mark Lentz of Topeka, Kan., and their daughters Janae and her husband Tucker Adams, and Jordyn and her husband Charlie Brulez; and Brenda, her husband James Johnson and their children Emma and Graham of Helena, Mont. Also surviving are one sister, Kay, and her husband Charles Bright of Valley Center, Kan., one brother-in-law, L.M. Krull, and his wife Connie of Mound City, Kan.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; and one sister, Janice, and her husband Kenneth Sinn; and Kay’s first husband, Bob Coyan.
Funeral service will be 11 a.m. Saturday, March 10, 2018, at the Community of Christ Church, Mapleton. Burial will be in the Curry Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 10 a.m. to service time at the church.
The family suggests contributions to the Mapleton or Olathe Community of Christ. Online condolences for the family can be left at www.schneiderfunerals.com. Arrangements: Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, Mound City Chapel.
