Edith Stracka

September 29, 1927 ~ December 5, 2017 (age 90)


Cadillac - Edith Irene Stracka, of LeRoy, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at Munson Healthcare's Cadillac Hospital. She was 90.

Edith was born into a large family of 13 children on September 29, 1927, in Port Huron, to Carl and Theresa (Albert) Langolf.  In 1948 she entered into marriage with Albert Stephen Stracka, celebrating several years together until his passing in 1982. From their union came a large family of their own of six children that Edith deeply loved and cared for.  

Edith was a loving mother and grandmother that often could be found connecting with family and friends through Facebook.  Even at the age of 90, she was very tech savvy and took every opportunity to keep up with her family's happenings as she would "post" and "like" things from her account.  In earlier years Edith would enjoy a game of bingo or get wrapped up in good book.

Edith is survived by her family; six children, Mark (Kathleen) Stracka of Manton, Timothy Stracka of Leroy, Christine (John) Elkins of Mio, Rosemary (Gerard) Felice of Howell, Kurt (Renee) Stracka of Tustin, and Karen Wright of Livonia; eleven grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter; two sisters, Dorothy and Judith; as well as many other loving family members and friends. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Albert, six brothers, and four sisters.
