Florence Viola Stratman was born March 8th, 1923 in Ansley Nebraska to Ruth Teller and Clyde Ogilvie. They moved to Deadwood South Dakota in 1930. August 20th 1940 Florence went on the “first real date” of bowling, burger, and a malt with the future love of her life Jerry Stratman after being introduced by their mutual friends at a high school football game in Deadwood. On November 27th, 1942 in Anaconda Montana they made their love official and got married.
Florence is the mother of six children, grandmother to eleven, and fifteen great grandchildren. She is remembered as always up early with a smile on her face and humming something upbeat. Ready for church or a yard sale! She remembered everyone’s birthdays with a two dollar bill, or a dollar gold coin. No matter what, she made each individual feel special!
Florence also spent many years teaching at Pecos middle school where she loved her students and job dearly. Florence also was an amazing piano player.
Florence passed away on June 28th 2011, in Westminister, Colorado. She is preceded in death by husband Jerry, and daughter Joanne Stratman Kay, parents Clyde and Ruth Ogilvie, brother Lawrence Ogilvie, and sister Elsie Pfister.
She is survived by five children, 11 grandchildren, and 15 great grandchildren. She will be loved and missed by many.
