Carolyn (Euering) STREISEL Obituary

News Death Notice

STREISEL, Carolyn (Euering) age 74, died February 16. Born in Springfield, OH, she always aspired to be a teacher. A Golden Flyer, she graduated with honors from the University of Dayton in 1962 and taught for two years before she and her husband, Bill, started their family. Carolyn earned her Masters degree (UD, 1986). After her children were old enough, she resumed teaching fourth grade until her retirement in 1999. Working full time didn't stop her from mall-walking every morning, taking aerobics classes, crafting, gardening, being involved with theater, and singing in the church choir. She hand cross-stitched many items, including special Christmas stockings for each of her grandchildren. After retirement, with Bill, her husband of 51 years, behind the wheel and always by her side, Carolyn traveled extensively. From day trips to Brown County and Shipshewana, to distant lands in Hawaii, Quebec, the Caribbean and Ireland, Carolyn savored every trip. She valued hard work and education and she cherished family holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas; she instilled in her children the family traditions of each holiday. She read voraciously, and after retirement she volunteered at Dayton Children's Hospital and sang in the Miami Valley Chorale and St. Henry Catholic Church choir. She exemplified perseverance, even through her illness. Her husband stayed faithfully by her side-a true manifestation of the phrase "in sickness and in health." Preceding her in death were her mother, Catherine Lubbers Euering, and father, Robert Euering. Left to cherish her memory are her devoted husband, Bill; her children, Patti (Gary) Rish, Terri (Mark) O'Brien, Kristen (Patrick Yerian) Eason, Jim (Stacia) Streisel; grandchildren Megan, Leanna, Sean, Hayley, Jared, and Zach; brother, Thomas Euering, and many devoted friends and extended family members. Visitation will be at TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME-FAR HILLS CHAPEL, 5471 Far Hills Ave. at Rahn Rd. Dayton, OH, from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, February 20, 2014. Mass of Christian Burial 10:30 am Friday, February 21, 2014 at St. Henry Catholic Church, 6666 Springboro Pike, Miamisburg, OH. at 10:30 a.m. Online condolences may be sent to www.tobiasfuneralhome.com
