Lydia Krug, 86, died on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, at her home surrounded by her family. Born and raised in the 'Russian Alley' of South River, she lived most of her life there, before moving to Columbus, NJ, in 2018. Lydia is the daughter of the late Jacob and Anna Kananovich. Her dearly loved husband of 54 years, George, predeceased her in 2009. She was predeceased also by her adored son, Brent, who died in 1991. Lydia leaves behind two daughters and their families: Dawn Adams, her husband, Matt, and children, Lyndsay and Kayla of Columbus, NJ; and Debbie Stahl, her husband, Brian, and children, Heather (Jonathan), Bethany (Jordan), and Brianna (Jonathan) of Alabama. Lydia and her husband worked tirelessly to sacrificially provide for their children as they grew into adulthood. She left a legacy of loyalty and sincere commitment to the people and things she held dear. She retired from Wonder Bread factory in East Brunswick in 1992 and enjoyed being a stay-at-home grandma during her retirement. Lydia was a strong and feisty woman. Her strength and perseverance were evident as she lived well with the debilitating effects of parkinson's disease for nearly 20 years. In her later years she loved to read, recording each book she read and celebrating as she reached milestones of reading 100, then 200, then 300 books. She loved her many doggie companions especially Butchie, Poopsie, and Lola.
