Patricia Ann Strouf

July 1, 1941 — April 21, 2013

Patricia (Patsy) Ann Anderson Strouf, best known as “Cookie Gma” passed away Sunday, April 21, 2013 due to complications from a series of strokes. She was born July 1, 1941 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Lewistown, Montana. Patsy was raised by her loving grandparents Oscar and Ann Anderson on a ranch in Stanford, Montana. She attended Stanford schools through the 6th Grade and then due to rheumatic fever attended Ursuline Academy in Great Falls, Montana for 7th and 8th Grades. Her high school years were spent at Central Catholic High School in Great Falls. On February 13, 1960 Patsy married her sweetheart Truman C. Strouf in Stanford, Montana at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church. During the first year of marriage they ranched on the Strouf farm northeast of Stanford. The next 13 years they moved and lived in several states with the Federal Highway Administration. During that time four children were born: Thomas, Donald, Karleen and Kristene. In 1972 the family moved to Billings, Montana and Truman worked for a glass company while Patsy volunteered at schools and became a dental assistant. In the fall of 1981 Patsy and Truman opened their own glass shop, Magic City Glass on Grand Avenue in Billings. They retired after 24 years. Truman passed away May 8, 2009, just a few months short of their much anticipated 50th wedding anniversary. Patsy enjoyed her Bible sisters at Faith Chapel in Billings and the group at Pastoral Care, especially Patti Barkell. Patsy is survived by: her loving children Thomas (Shelli) Strouf of Billings, Donald Strouf of Eugene, Oregon, Karleen (Todd) Hagenbuch of Billings, Kristene (Steve) Stiles of Bozeman; seven precious grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; and numerous other relatives and friends. A memorial service will be held at 11:00am on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at Faith Chapel in Billings. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to Hospice of Southwest Montana -3810 Valley Commons Drive, Suite 1, Bozeman, MT 59718.
