Barbara (Trybus) Krug

Barbara (Trybus) Krug, 72, died peacefully surrounded by angels on Friday, July 10, 2020, at St. John’s Specialty Care in Mars.

Barbara was born in Barnesboro, Northern Cambria, to John and Helen Trybus. She graduated from Bishop Carroll High School in Ebensburg in 1965. She went on to graduate from Mercy Hospital School of Nursing in Altoona in 1968. In 1968, She married Richard Krug of Loretto at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in Barnesboro.

Barbara left a lasting influence as a loving mother, grandma, wife, daughter, cousin, sister-in-law and friend. She was a dedicated nurse who was known for going above and beyond to provide compassionate care for others during their most difficult times. She was a steadfast, inspirational leader amongst colleagues, and had an accomplished career in home care nursing management. She was proud to achieve a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Carlow University at the age of 53 while working full time. One of her most cherished positions was with friends at Community Nursing Service in Hastings and Johnstown. Her nursing experience spanned over 40 years of caring for others, including her family.

After retirement, she joyfully embarked on a second full-time career as an adoring grandmother who dedicated all her time and loving care to her family. Her children are eternally grateful for her unwavering support and the many precious memories made with her. Her loving embrace will live on forever in their hearts and those of her grandchildren.

She is survived by her children: Rick Krug and Sharon (Marshall) Kohnen; and her grandchildren: Seth, Averie and John Krug, and Colby, Carter and Colin Kohnen, all of Mars.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Helen; her husband, Richard; and her infant granddaughter, Hannah Grace.
