TYYNE S. STROEH
Private family services have been held for Tyyne Susanna Stroeh who died Wednesday at Kaiser Hospital in Terra Linda following a lengthy illness.
A native of Finland, she grew up there and came to the United States in the 1920s. She met her husband, Otto Stroeh, a native of Germany, in an English language class in Southern California.
The couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last July.
The Stroehs moved to Novato in the 1940s when Stroeh went to work at Mare Island Naval Shipyard.
Besides her husband she is survived by two daughters, Martha Wells of Novato and Karen Stroeh of Sacramento; a son, Dietrich Stroeh, general manager of the Marin Municipal Water District, and eight grandchildren.
The family prefers memorial contributions to either the Diabetes Association or the Arthritis Foundation.
