Anne Zeman Strauss

Resident of San Rafael
Anne Zeman Strauss died peacefully at home on Wednesday, November 17, 2021. Though she struggled with heart failure and progressive macular degeneration for many years, she lived a proud and independent life with alacrity, grace, and indomitable courage. In her own words, she suffered from "too many birthdays". She was surrounded by her four daughters Sandra, Debra, Susan, and Laura. She is also survived by eleven grandchildren Jared, Joelle, Isaiah, Kevin, Brett, Aaron, Eli, Hanna, Libby Rose, Samara, and Tory, four sons-in-law Jon, Craig, David, and Jim, sister-in-law Margie, and niece and nephew Ellen and Paul.
Anne, daughter of Leonard and Rosetta Zeman, grew up in Chicago, Illinois. She graduated from Hyde Park High and Western Michigan University. In 1951, she married Sherman Strauss in Chicago, and shortly thereafter they journeyed to San Francisco and started their new life together.
Anne was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and dear friend. Her daughters were the center of her world. She was a homemaker extraordinaire and generously dedicated time to her communities. She was always game for adventure, traveling with Sherman to places both near and far. In her later years, she and Sherm moved to San Rafael, where she devoted herself to the Smith Ranch community that she so loved and which sustained her.
Contributions in Anne's name may be made to Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, Hebrew Free Loan of San Francisco, Macular Degeneration Association, or any organization that is important to the donor.
