Sheila Dorothy Strouse (Ker) Born on December 10, 1932 in Liverpool, England, daughter of Hugh and Dorothy Ker (Deceased). Passed away on March 29, 2016 at 7:20am of a broken heart. She was 83 years old. Survived by her children: Victor (Tammy), Karen and Gregory (Bev); her grandchildren: Cassandra, Madison, Erin, Donovan, Ian, Jesse and Jaime; and her five great-grandchildren: Kenneth, Gavin, Landon, Austin and Arianna. Sheila is also survived by her brothers, David and John and sister, Dora.
Sheila was the devoted wife of Wilbur Strouse who passed away last August. She worked in retail sales for many years in Colorado Springs, their home since 1971. Sheila grew up in Liverpool surviving the German Blitz (an evacuation to Shrewsbury) and a leg injury that left her right leg unbendable for the rest of her life. Her life changed in 1953 when she met and eventually married the love of her life Wilbur. They had 60 years together until his passing in August. Sheila enjoyed her trips to Cripple Creek and loved American football. She loved her adopted country and she took full advantage of the opportunities this country offered a young Liverpudlian girl who left school when she was 14 years old. Sheila had the intelligence and drive to earn a wonderful life. Sheila’s heart failed her eventually, but it was that heart that guided her life. She now joins her most precious Wilbur for eternity. Together, forever.

When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm, there’s a golden sky
And the sweet, silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone

Rodgers and Hammerstein
