News Death Notice

STROBHAR, MARGARET "Marge" (Reiling) Age 92, passed away Saturday, March 23, 2013 at St. Leonard's San Damiano Memory Support Unit in Centerville, Ohio. She was born April 2, 1920 in Dayton, Ohio to the late Charles and Edith Reiling. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her 6 brothers and 2 sisters; her husband, Frank Strobhar; and her grandson, Andy Strobhar. She graduated from Julienne High School and received her business degree from the University of Dayton. All of her siblings were U. D. graduates, too. Marge is survived by Francie (George) Medary; Kathy (Tarry) Maxson; Tom (Bobbie) Strobhar; Dan Strobhar; Dave (Karen) Strobhar; 13 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; Sherry Christopher, her "adopted" daughter, and many other loving family members and friends. Marge was a fun, loving, caring, generous and very devout Catholic woman whose heart was huge. Her passions were music, bridge, golf and being outdoors. Marge always dreamed of living on a farm. Her wish came true as she enjoyed living in the country with Frank and their children on Spring Valley and Stewart Rds., creating beautiful memories for her kids and grandkids. She was also known for her great sense of humor and made the best chocolate chip cookies in town, no matter how burned they were! While she had other jobs outside of her home, her favorite job was recording the birth certificates for the babies at Kettering Memorial Hospital for many years. She was active in Pro-Life events; delivered Meals on Wheels to shut-ins; started the first singing group at St. Leonard's when she moved there in 2003 as well as became a greeter for new residents; won first prize for being the oldest winner at a race riding her scooter at St. Leonard's. The family wishes to sincerely thank all of the nurses, doctors, aids, and staff over all these years who have taken such loving care of mom and made her happy to be there. Donations in her memory may be made to the St. Leonard Benevolence Fund or to Life Decisions International, www.fightpp.org. Like her husband, Frank, Marge has selflessly donated her body for research and science at Wright State University. A memorial celebration of her wonderful life will be held at St. Leonard's Chapel, 8100 Clyo Rd., Centerville, Ohio on Memorial Day weekend (details to follow later on). Condolences may be expressed to the family through tstrobhar@aol.com.
