Emily Anne STRANGE Obituary
STRANGE, Emily Anne Emily Anne Strange of Johnson Creek, WI passed away on July 12, 2016 at her home. She was in her 70th year. Born July 23, 1946 in Atlanta, Georgia, Emily graduated from Murphy High School in 1964. She attended Young Harris Junior College and graduated from Georgia Southern University in 1968. After college she served with the American Red Cross as a Donut Dollie with the 9th Infantry Division and Mobile Riverine Force in Vietnam. She later created a website (emilydd.com), where she shared her writings and helped veterans reconnect with one another and tell their stories. An active member of the Vietnam Vet community, she was proud to be considered "one of their own". She was active as a speaker at Vietnam Vet Reunions and her words brought both laughter and tears. Emily was featured in a movie called, "A Touch of Home" which tells about the lives of the women who served in Vietnam as Donut Dollies and nurses. She leaves behind her sister, Peggy Michel and her husband, Dennis, of Oak Park, Illinois and two nephews: Hans Michel of Chicago and Christopher M Knight, his wife Tara and their children Avery, Rylan, and Davis of Woodland Hills, California. A private family service will be held at a later date. Pederson-Nowatka Funeral Homes is caring for the family. To place an online condolence, please visit www.pn-fh.com.
