I was saddened to hear of C.J.'s passing. When she lived in Minden, Ne. I became friends with her, through Bowling and Golf. We had many many fun times. C.J. was so much fun, full of life, and outgoing. We also would golf every fall in a 3 Lady Breast Cancer tournament in Alma, Ne. Such great times we had there. I will enjoy my cherished memories of her. Just a an awesome person. Sincerely , Cindy Cederburg

Catchy and I had many many good times together growing up. She always had a great sense of humor and a ready smile. We went through Senior Girl Scouts together and shared some wonderful memories. My last fun memory with Cathy was at our 40th class reunion and Cathy, Susan, and myself made up the only all woman team. We came in last but we had the best time. She was a hoot and I’ll remember her with a laugh and a hug. May you be reunited with your loved ones in heaven and may you Rest In Peace. Love you crazy girl.

How can you sum up a persons life in just a few words? The answer is simple; you can’t. Last Sunday our family lost the most wonderful woman we’d ever known. My grandma Cj Stroh wasn’t just special to us but to everyone who knew her. She was truly a blessing sent from God. We are so grateful that she is at peace with her maker and no doubt worshiping him as I write along side my grandpa and the family who left before her. But the loss is still raw and painful. To have known and loved her has been a gift. Her love for God and her family truly radiated from her soul. Her kindness had no boundaries and her joy and laughter were abundant. If you knew my grandma you knew her love for life and her struggle with her health the last few years. We are incredibly grateful that she’s breathing freely once again in Heaven! We love you skippy ❤️

Condolences can be sent to PO Box 56, Chappell, NE 69129.
