Dianne Elizabeth Krus

September 11, 1945 — February 14, 2024


Dianne Elizabeth Krus (née Eichelberger) of Evergreen, CO passed away at home on February 14, 2024 from complications due to Parkinson’s Disease. 


Dianne (Dee to many of her friends and family) was a graduate of South High School in Denver and Western State College of Colorado in Gunnison, where she studied Elementary Education with a minor in skiing. She worked as a substitute teacher when her children were small, but for most of her career Dee was a computer programmer, in banking and in travel. Towards the end of her career she went back into education and worked as an elementary paraprofessional.


Dee was a smart, strong, and beautiful woman who was a wonderful mother, wife, sister, and friend. She was very proficient in crafts including pottery, knitting, cross stitch and stamping. She was a seamstress and a creative designer. Her hobbies included gardening, skiing, and hiking and biking with Bob Krus, her husband of 41 years. Dee was an avid bicyclist and completed 5 week-long tours, each over 400 miles. She rode her bicycle over nearly every mountain pass in Colorado. She loved shopping and having lunch with her friends, and she was active in her church and the Daughters Of The King ministry. Dianne loved music, and went to many concerts and music festivals with family and friends. 


Dianne leaves behind her loving husband Bob Krus (Evergreen, CO); her daughters Kelli Trujillo (Laramie, WY), Holly McClelland (Edgewater, CO), and Murphy the Cat (Laramie, WY); her sisters Susie Crane (Denver, CO) and Sally Kuhn (Lakewood, CO), her niece and great-niece Elizabeth and Veronica Herrmann (Denver, CO), and her father Bill Eichelberger (Denver, CO). She was preceded in death by her mother Marty Eichelberger (née Crane) and her brother Dave Eichelberger.
