Obituary

Obituary for Dolores Ann Strous ((Strome))

Generous with her time, money, and talents, Dolores Ann (Strome) Strous, passed away peacefully Saturday October 24, 2020 at her home in Xenia surrounded by family. She was 86 years old. Dolores was born on June 24, 1934 in Dayton, Ohio to Hilma Ann (Mueller) and Howard Edward Strome.

Dolores was retired from Key Bank, Xenia, where she worked several years as a teller. Besides being an active grandma, attending all activities that her grandkids were involved in, she was passionate about her church, Faith Community United Methodist Church in Xenia, where she was a member for over 50 years. Because of her love of her church and flowers, she always made sure there were flowers on the altar. Dolores was also active volunteering for various church activities and services. She especially enjoyed playing the bells. Dolores volunteered at the Greene County Historical Society, Xenia Adult Recreation Service Center, and the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. She will also be remembered for her love of jigsaw puzzles, reading, writing special notes in greeting cards and celebrating birthdays and holidays, or any other reason to gather with her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and sister Marsha Hieber. Dolores is survived by her husband Richard "Dick" Strous, daughter Nancy Wellman, two sons Rick Strous and Tom (Angela) Strous, and four grandchildren Mike (Sera) Wellman, Nicole (Dylan) Adams, Jacob Strous, and Kathleen Strous.

Franklin St., Bellbrook (937-848-6651), followed by Life Celebration Memorial Services at 7:00 pm. Private burial services will be held at Green Summit Cemetery, Adelphi, Ohio.

So sorry to hear the loss of Delores! My dad, Cliff McKee enjoyed working with her on committees. He always said she has a fabulous memory for names and I don’t! They worked well together. Even when my mom, Eleanor McKee, moved away from Xenia , she always wanted to visit Delores! My parents so enjoyed Dick and Delores in the Double II class! She and Dick raised wonderful children whom I used to babysit! No words can express how heartbroken I was to get the news here in CA !

I wish to extend my condolences to all the family of Dolores Strous. I have known her for a very long time and enjoyed working with her on the Executive Committee for United Methodist Women . We have been members of the Double I Sunday School Class for a long time. I first met Dolores and Dick many years ago at First Methodist. Her dedication to family, church and community will be missed. Thanks for the memories.
