HAMPTON - 'Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter now into the joy of your Lord.' Margaret Alberta Kruse heard these words of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as she entered her heavenly home Sept. 20, 2011, at the age of 89. She passed away after a brief stay at the Northampton Convalescent Center.

Margaret was born in Newport News on Sept. 9, 1922, to Charles and Alberta Bishop. She grew up in Newport News and graduated from Newport News High School. Following graduation, she married Charles Bernard Kruse Jr., and they had two children, Charles and Barbara Jean. Following the death of her husband in 1968, Margaret attended and graduated from nursing school. She was subsequently employed as a LPN at the Virginia Baptist Home until her retirement in 1991. Margaret was a devoted wife, beloved mother, doting grandmother and warm friend.

 

 
 
 


Margaret was a member of Liberty Baptist Church for 52 years, where she taught Sunday school and Vacation Bible school. She was very active in the Women's Missionary Union and loved visiting the sick and homebound. The most important things in her life were her relationship to the Lord and her family.

Mrs. Kruse was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers, two sisters and her husband.

She is survived by her daughter, Barbara Jean White and husband, Gerald of York County; her son, Charles Bernard Kruse III and wife, Brenda of Seaford; her grandchildren, Charles Bernard Kruse IV, Kent Todd Kruse, Stephen Scott Kruse, and Stephen Wayne White; and great-grandchildren, Hanna Kruse and Nolan Kruse.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, at Parklawn-Wood Funeral Home. A celebration of Margaret's life will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at Liberty Baptist Church, Pastor Joe Hunt officiating. Interment will follow in Parklawn Memorial Park.

Thine Be the Glory

Words by Edmond Louis Budry
(30 Aug 1854 - 12 Nov 1932)

Music by George Frideric Handel, 1947
(23 Feb 1685 - 14 Apr 1759)

 

Thine be the glory, risen, conq’ring Son;
Endless is the vict'ry, Thou o’er death hast won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave clothes where Thy body lay.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb;
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
Let the church with gladness, hymns of triumph sing;
For her Lord now liveth, death hath lost its sting.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught without Thee; aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conq’rors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.
