Erwin and Bertha Strom and brother, Rev. Everald (Sylvia) Strom. She was a graduate of Hillcrest Lutheran Academy in Fergus Falls, MN.

Above all, she entrusted her life to Christ, which was evident in her service to others. She is survived by her three children, John (Tess) of Golden Valley, Mary (Terry) Esau of St. Louis Park, and Jim (Joan) of Minneapolis; 9 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren, along with nieces, nephews and cousins.
