Margaret Catherine Krill, 99, of Plains Township, was greeted by her Lord in the early morning hours on Monday, November 20, 2017,  while in the care of the Partridge-Tippet Nursing Facility at Wesley Village, Inkerman.


              Born in Wilkes-Barre on September 21, 1918, she was one of twelve children of the late Paul and Catherine Budzak Ciprich. Margaret grew up in Wilkes-Barre area and attended local schools.


              Margaret married the love of her life, Michael Krill, and together they moved to Sayreville, New Jersey.  Margaret worked as a saleswoman in the Greenfield Department Store for fifteen years. She was also a dedicated mother of her loving daughter.

               Margaret's faith was a major part of her life and she enjoyed participating in her parish church in Sayreville, Our Lady of Victories and was a member of the school’s PTA.


               Margaret returned to the Wyoming Valley several years after her husband Michael passed in June of 1982. She lived in Wilkes-Barre and joined the Sacred Heart Parish on North Main Street.  She later joined St. Benedict’s Parish, Wilkes-Barre, after Sacred Heart Parish closed.   


                            Over the years, Magaret enjoyed playing bingo and loved to watch her favorite game shows.
