She was a good friend and loyal to the VFW Auxiliary. May she and all the faithful departed Rest In Peace.

Mrs. Strong was a very special person to me. I took her communion every Sunday for over 10 years. I always enjoyed her humor and stories about her family. She loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren very much.
Her mind was exceptionally sharp and I always enjoyed our time together. When I took my little granddaughter with me to visit her, she always enjoyed giving my granddaughter some candy. And my granddaughter always enjoyed receiving it.
I will always cherish my friendship with Mrs. Strong and will miss her dearly. May her soul Rest In Peace and may the Good Lord place his comforting hands upon all the family and loved ones. Blessings!
