The campus community mourns the passing of Edith Kreps, 79, who died on Monday, July 18. Edith worked for the University for 15 years, retiring as custodian in 2000.
She was born Jan. 12, 1937, in Lewisburg, a daughter of the late Arthur R. and Vivian Alda (Gardner) Baney. She was married to Arthur Kreps who preceded her in death.
Edith graduated from Lewisburg High School and worked as a beautician before coming to Bucknell. Edith enjoyed playing bingo, sewing and taking bus trips. She especially enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She will be sorely missed by her cat, Mandy Sue.
Edith is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Brian and Teresa Troutman, of Mifflinburg and Karl and Dawn Troutman, of Milton; one daughter, Donna Troutman, of Milton; one brother, William Baney, of Milton; two stepdaughters and their husbands, Diane and Paul Sharp, of Carlisle and Sandy and Dick Murray, of Mifflinburg; nine grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and her close friend, Deb.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Richard and Robert Baney.
Friends and relatives will be received from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, July 22, at the Shaw Funeral Home, 400 North Front Street, Milton. Funeral service will follow at 11 a.m., with the Reverend Paula Gustafson officiating. Burial will be in Montandon Cemetery.
