Obit: Betty Jo Strasheim, 1924 - 2002

The following obituary is transcribed from the March 15, 2002 edition of the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle --
Betty Jo Strasheim


Betty Jo Strasheim, 77, of Cheyenne died March 12 at 3128 Boxelder Dr. in Cheyenne.  She was born Sept. 30, 1924, in Dix, Neb., and had lived here for 54 years with prior residence in Kimball.  Mrs. Strasheim had retired after 15 years as the secretary at Trinity Lutheran Church.  She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church.
Mrs. Strasheim is survived by her husband, (LIVING) of Cheyenne; a son, (LIVING) of Cheyenne; two daughters, (LIVING) of Jackson and (LIVING) of Cheyenne; two brothers, (LIVING) of San Lorenzo, Calif., and (LIVING) of Yorba Linda, Calif.; a sister, (LIVING) of Omaha, Neb.; and five grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Keith and Mattie Walker; two brothers, Ralph K. Walker and Norman Walker; a half-brother, Arthur Walker; and two half-sisters, Beula Mae Wistrom and Jenifer Cosgrif.
Services will be at 10:30 a.m. Monday at Trinity Lutheran Church with the Rev. David Caspersen officiating.  Interment will be in Cheyenne Memorial Gardens.

Friends may contribute to Trinity Lutheran Church or the Alzheimer's Association.
Note: It is "Beulah Lee Wistrom" not "Beula Mae."

Note: The obituary informant forgot Dorothy Grace Nitzsche, who was Betty's half-sister, and died in 1948 decades before any of the other siblings.

Note: It might seem silly for me to replace the names of the living in a published obituary, when that information is readily available from the newspaper itself.  But I am endeavoring to protect the privacy of my living relatives on this blog, and if someone wants that information bad enough they can work to get it.
