Barbara Krotz, 84 years old, was born 9/12/1934 passed away peacefully in her sleep in Pleasant Hill, IA at Parkridge Assisted Living on 07/05/2019.

She was a known Iowa Hawkeyes fan and resided on the corner of Sheridan and Colombia at 312 E. Sheridan Des Moines, IA. She was the daughter of Martha Krotz & William Krotz, of German ancestry, and was raised as a child in Iowa City, IA with her brother, Paul W. Krotz and sister, Elizabeth T. Krotz. She was a known antique and doll collector. She loved the people in her community and especially had a joy for children (like John’s son Jason, Dorothy’s granddaughter Neysa, and many more). She retired out of Findley Elementary School and continued relationships with organizations like St. Vincent de Paul, and Bethel Mission.

Her love for the Lord was very known amongst her Peers and community. She was Catholic, on the other hand she would pray with you no matter what type of Christian you were. Her energy was powerful, joyous, friendly, and Barbara always had a smile on her face.

She was known for overcoming obstacles, maneuvered through mischievous people’s hands, lost many things of value, and physical hardships like rheumatoid arthritis. And even with all the hard-ships she encountered she still always managed to stay optimistic, forgive people, and kept her faith in the Lord.

You will always be loved and remembered here on earth Barbara Krotz.

This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.-
John 15:12
