Bea Anita Krause, age 96 of Montello passed away Sunday, July 26, 2020 at Tivoli in Portage.  Bea was born in Bovey, MN on June 24, 1924 to Fred and Olive (Leonard) Jensen. Bea married Alexander Wolfe and together they had one daughter, he preceded her in death on July 16, 1972.

Bea worked for many years at Northlake Hospital in Northlake, IL until moving to Montello in 2003 to be closer to family.  She lived to travel; she got to experience many different countries and cultures around the world.  Bea will be remembered for sharing her culinary skills with friends and family.  She will be greatly missed.

Our family would like to give a special thanks to the staff at Tivoli for the exceptional care given to my mother and to the compassion shown to us during a most difficult time.
