Obituary for Jayne Lou Krebser

Jayne Lou Hostetler Krebser, age 83 of Sturgis, Michigan made her transition to the next world Thursday evening June 15, 2017 at Thurston Woods Village in Sturgis where she was surrounded by the incredibly loving staff of nurses and caregivers that she loved wholeheartedly.
She was born March 21, 1934 in Shipshewana, Indiana daughter of the late Tyrus LaJoie and Zella Mae (Hutton) Hostetler.
Jayne was a character to say the least. Full of wit laughter and intense sense of humor, she grew up in Sturgis as the last living daughter of Tyrus and Zella.
Upon her graduation from Sturgis High School with the class of 1952, she stuck off for New York City and the bright lights of Broadway. She had a brief but exciting career working in the early days of television at both NBC and CBS. She appeared in several cameo spots during that period of time.
While living in New York City, she met once again, her future husband James William Karl Krebser whom she later married in New York City and had two sons with, James Stephen Hutton Krebser of Palm Desert, California and John Ty Krebser of Bradenton Florida and was blessed with four grandchildren: Matthew, Mitchell, Michealla, and Maia.
Jim and Jayne went their separate ways and she started down another career path in both Honolulu Hawaii and Santa Barbara California as a graphic artist, architectural renderer and interior designer. Jayne had many proud accomplishments.
In 1974 Jayne returned to Sturgis to be with her parents and so that her sons could attend Sturgis High School. Jayne went to work for the Sturgis Journal and was also also very active in the community including serving on the city planning board and was an active member in the Sturges Civic Players for many years.
