Alice Florence (Storlie) Stromberg, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, passed away on Thursday, December 1, 2016, with her family by her side. She was 90 years old.

Alice was born on July 31, 1926, in Mora, MN, to Peter and Emma (Johnson) Storlie. She grew up in Mora with six siblings. She graduated from Mora High School in 1944. On November 21, 1946, she was united in marriage to Vernon Stromberg, and this year lovingly celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. They were blessed with four children.

Alice held many jobs in her lifetime. One of her earliest involved moving to Portland, OR, to work on air planes during WWII. She also worked at the New Brighton Arsenal; as a waitress at Eddie and Esther’s Restaurant in Mora; a grocery and department store clerk; and as secretary to Wally Anderson at the Jobs & Training Center. But the one job she was most proud of was being a wonderful homemaker.

Alice is survived by her husband Vernon; her children, Arlan (Janet) Stromberg, Barb (Phil) Schroeder, Brian Stromberg, Susan (Mike) Yankowiak; eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and many extended family members and friends.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, sisters and brothers. One can only imagine the celebration of this homecoming family reunion.

She will be remembered as someone with a wonderful soul that would make anyone feel at home when they came to visit. She enjoyed gardening, reading and cooking. Many of her dishes won’t be replicated, because she often didn’t use a recipe. She also loved to watch food and cooking channels. She was the biggest fan and enjoyed attending grandchildren’s sports, concerts, plays and church activities.

The deep love for her children and family was the center of her life. She cherished the holidays and visits from her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    We are so sorry to hear of Alice’s passing…SOOOO many memories of our neighborhood families these past few days. We mourn the loss of the loved ones who pass, as we treasure the memories we have of each other during a time when life was simple and quieter. How blessed our little families have been to have a life time of memories and friendships that started on one little Riverside Street in Mora, Minnesota. We’re keeping you all close in our heart and prayers, as you recount your own cherished memories and say “see ya later” to your sweet Mom, Alice. RIP dear Alice. Pretty sure you had the Angels laughing as soon as you entered through those pearly Gates!

    Barb, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. We know how hard it is to loose a Mom. Tom always remember you saying that when you took your Mom and Aunts for a drive, you were driving Miss Daisies.
