Obituary for Donna J. Stroick

EDGERTON—Donna J. Stroick, age 86, of Edgerton, died Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019, at her home. She was born in Madison on Sept. 5, 1933, the daughter of Fred Palmer Myhre and Anne (Zelinka) Nordman. The family lived in Madison and Ladysmith, WI. After graduating from Ladysmith High School in 1951, she returned to Madison to live with her older sister, Gwen, while she pursued an x-ray technician degree from St. Mary’s Hospital, Madison.

Donna had an extensive business career owning retail shops in Wausau, Lake Geneva and Fontana, WI. She later managed shops in Chicago IL, and Lexington, KY, and finished her career as an office manager at an assisted living facility in Southeastern WI.

Her creative abilities were endless. She would purchase unique residential properties and then redesign, remodel, and do much of the "heavy lifting" tasks to make them into gems to flip. She passed on many of these talents to her son Mark and they would do many of these projects together.

Donna was always adventurous, learning to fly single and twin engine airplanes on a dare. She was thrilled that her son, Gary took up lessons and were working toward their pilot licenses at the same time. She was creative, artistic, musical and generous to a fault with an amazing sense of humor and the ability to touch your heart in a moment.

Donna is survived by her 3 loving children: Gary (Carol Post) of St. Louis, MN, Jule (Jeff Ford) of Madison, and Mark Stroick of Edgerton; granddaughter, Camille Ford; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends; and a four-legged companion, Trooper. She loved the get together at Ardyce’s and her brother Jim’s in Milwaukee every summer; it was a delightful time to pull the “Myhre” family of many generations together to enjoy food and memories.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, James; sister, Gwendolyn, grandson, Mitchell; and long-time close family friend, Bevis.

Her life was made easier with the loving care from Mark, Jule, Gary, Jen, and Kristin. We will always be grateful to Jen and Kristin and their families for the adventures and laughter in the last few years of her life!

Private family services will be held. Celebration of Her Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to an organization that takes care of animals – she loved cats and dogs. The APFEL EHLERT FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICE, Edgerton is assisting the family with arrangements.
