Myna Marie Stroth Obituary
Stroth, Myna Marie
I, Myna Marie Stroth, passed away on May 15, 2015 in Scottsdale after losing my struggle with ALS. I was born in 1941 to Nick and Martha Meissner of Glendive, Montana, graduated from the U of A, and, after moving to Anaheim to teach, had the great fortune to meet my future husband, Ronald Alan Stroth, MD, my partner and my love. We settled in Philadelphia, where Ron finished his anesthesia residency and our son, Bob, was born. In 1970 we moved to Phoenix. Ron practiced at the Scottsdale hospitals. Our daughter Stephanie was born in 1971. I taught at Phoenix Country Day School for five years, followed by ten years of teaching gifted students at Madison Simis School, which I loved! After retiring, Ron and I bought our dream cabin in Munds Park and spent 15 idyllic summers with our friends and neighbors. Our favorite pastime was traveling the world with our close friends Stu and Anne Matheson and Chuck and Judy Johnson. Surviving me is my husband, Ron, with whom I shared 46 fulfilling and gratifying years of marriage; our son, Robert Alan Stroth, M.D. (Amy) and our grandson William; our daughter Stephanie (Keith); my brother, Tom Meissner (Carol); our nephews Tom (Lynn) and David; and our niece Susan. I would like to thank the Maravilla Scottsdale staff and caregivers, Kim Hughes and the ALS Foundation, Marion and the Mayo's ALS team, and Hospice of the Valley for providing me a helpful path through this painful journey. A REMEMBRANCE SERVICE will be held on Saturday, May 23 from 1:00 - 3:00 PM at the Princess Resort. 7575 E Princess Dr, Scottsdale, AZ 85255. Contributions may be made to Hospice of the Valley, Fund Development, 1510 E. Flower St., Phoenix, AZ 85014 or the ALS Association Arizona, 360 E. Coronado Rd., Ste 140, Phoenix, AZ 85004.
