Virginia M. Stryker Obituary
Virginia M. Stryker

AGE: 79 • Keyport

God has called his favorite angel home. Oldest child of Frances and James Redfield, Virginia M. Stryker, 79, of Keyport, passed away, Sunday, May 14, 2017, at Bayshore Health Care Center, Holmdel. Born in Jamaica (Queens), NY and raised in Queens Village and Hollis, NY, she later moved to Jersey City then settled in Keyport in the early 1950's where she met her husband Philip Stryker. Virginia worked as a machinist for Engineer Precision Casting Company in Middletown until her retirement in 1997 but her main love and focus has always been her family and friends, including her many "adopted" children. Virginia spread love, joy and humor wherever she went and in turn was loved by all who knew her. She was a parishioner of St. Joseph's Parish for more than 50 years and a member of V.F.W. Auxiliary Post 4247.

She also loved playing cards and Bingo, vacationing with family and friends and babying her dogs.

Virginia is predeceased by her parents James and Frances (Mihle) Redfield and Step-father Aarvid Mihle, her husband Philip Stryker Sr., her sister Irene Fierro and brother James Redfield. She is survived by her children, Eugene Stryker, Philip Stryker and Kathy Stryker Anderson, son-in-law Brian Anderson, brother and sister-in-law Harold and Tana Redfield, sister and brother in-law Betty and Bob Stevenson, and many nephews and nieces. She will be dearly missed and fondly loved and remembered forever by her family and friends.

Visitation will be Friday, May 19, 2017, from 2-4PM & 6-8PM, at Day Funeral Home, 361 Maple Place, Keyport, NJ 07735; and Saturday, May 20, 2017, 8:15AM at the funeral home, with 9AM Mass of Christian Burial at St. Joseph's RC Church, Keyport.
