  • 67 years old
  • Born on March 3, 1951 in Camden, New Jersey, United States.
  • Passed away on February 27, 2019 in Fayetteville, Georgia, United States.

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, my loved one, Joan Q. Strehle, 67 years old.  She was born on March 3, 1951 and passed away on February 27, 2019 just shy of her next anticipated birthday party.  And just six months before, she celebrated her 47th Wedding Anniversary as pictured above.  We will remember her forever -- and miss her terribly.

Everyone will remember her constant smile, her pleasant nature, her silliness.  Remember her simplicity, her frugality, her easy temperment.  I will always remember she did not stay angry very long and was all too forgiving at an often annoying husband, who will always regret not apologizing more frequently.   She was always so nice, so friendly to everyone and  became an instant friend.  She always said please and thank you to everyone, and loved her creatures, big and small, pets or those in the wild.  She loved her gardening, feeding the birds, doing her puzzles and suduko, and overly decorating for each holiday.

She loved flea markets, garage and yard sales, and estate sales, and always bought something else to add to an overstuffed house, grounds and gardens.  She loved to volunteer in a variety of activities over the years, and only began slowing down in the last year of her life.  Joan never complained to anyone about anything, even when it was becoming more and more obvious that her 5 and a half year battle with cancer was finally catching up with her.  She was a strong woman, a self-determined woman and a very brave soul.  Her end came as a great surprise to all of us; the quickness, the rapid onset at what we all felt was being held at bay.  But Joan, sensing a worsening of condition, and then accepting the inevitable that lay waiting within a few weeks, stayed strong, kept her sense of humor and went with the style that so easily identified her. . .with grace.

Wherever you are my darling, I know you are happy, and those surrounding you as well.  

Remember, "I loved you yesterday, I love you still.  I have loved you always and always will."
