Betty Louise Strohmeyer
Betty Louise Strohmeyer (nee Christensen) age 77 passed away at The Waterford of West Bend on Sunday, December 19, 2021. She was in the care of hospice from sudden health complications since December 13, 2021.
She was born June 18, 1944, in the Town of Port Washington to Roland and Laura (nee Paape) Christensen. She was married to Harold on October 7, 1961.
Betty enjoyed spending quiet time with family, watching game shows, or keeping up with the news of the day on TV or in the paper, reading the bible or a good book. Betty enjoyed decorating her house with many found treasures from garage sales and thrift stores and taking special care to display them. She planted many flowers and plants around her home in her earlier years, finding new and exciting varieties that were always brightly colored and fragrant. She enjoyed looking through binoculars out her window watching the farmers in their fields and all kinds of nature, such as birds, deer, squirrels and the like. Betty enjoyed an old-fashion when eating out, or a beer with pizza, having a slice of strawberry cheesecake, roasting a few marshmallows over a stove flame, or some Oreo cookies with a glass of milk. Betty was a wonderful, deeply caring person that always worried about her friends, family, children and especially her grandchildren.
Betty is survived by her children, James, Jennifer and Steve (Jenny); grandchildren, Joshua and Jacob; siblings, Judith Gloede, Barbara (Erhardt) Jobs. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Betty is preceded in death by her husband, Harold; daughter, Deborah; parents; brother-in-law, Henry Gloede; nephew, Joseph Jobs.
