EPHRATA TWP., Pa. -

The woman found killed outside her Berks County home Wednesday night is being remembered by those she used to work with.

Louisa Krenzel was found face up in her driveway in the 500 Block of Long Lane in Pike Township shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday with what appeared to be multiple gunshot wounds, according to court documents. Her death has been ruled a homicide.

"I was shocked. I didn't know what to think, said Brian Hughes, owner of Brian's Computers and Games at the Green Dragon in Ephrata Twp., Lancaster Co. "She seemed to be a very nice girl."

Hughes and other shop owners told 69 News that Krenzel worked at the market over the past several years. Her estranged husband, Jules Krenzel, owns Lou's Surplus.

"She was a good worker," said Mark Merky, a nearby shop owner within the same building.

Shop owner Louis Meevers-Scholte agreed.

"She was a very hard worker. I feel bad for the family," he said.

State police remained tight-lipped about their investigation Friday, declining to comment on the case.
