On behalf of Dad(Lyal Stryker), myself, and all my siblings (Norma, Susan, and Norman) we offer our deepest sympathy at this time. Aunt Kathryn was a wonderful lady and we share such fond memories of visits with her. We are sorry to hear of her death yet grateful that she died peacefully and now rests in the arms of Jesus. We are sorry that we cannot be there in person to offer our condolences and remember her life.
