Anne Corry - Strasma was born on September 19, 1935, in Appleton, WI, to Dr. Lawrence and Ann (Burke) Corry. She grew up in Weyauwega, WI and in fifth grade her family moved to Menasha, WI. Anne graduated from St. Marys High School in 1953 and also graduated from the College of Saint Teresa in Winona where she received a Fulbright scholarship to Grenoble, France for one year. She returned to the states to Washington D. C. for one year and then moved to Chicago where she worked for the Institute of International Education. In her late 40's she moved back to Wisconsin to take care of her mother. She worked for the University of Wisconsin- Madison, where she was in charge of the department which dealt with foreign exchange students. Anne received her master's degree in Chinese History and Language from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she also attended Law School. There she met John Strasma and they were later married. Together they traveled extensively around the world. After John's death, she moved to Rochester, MN in 2014 due to Alzheimer's disease and to be closer with her family. Anne enjoyed traveling, music, and reading. She was known to always have a book with her at all times.

Anne is survived by her sisters, Kathy (Bran) Yaich of Orinda, CA and Pat (Gary) Fallon of Rochester; step-children, Mary, Kenneth, Susan, Patricia and Elizabeth; and sister-in-law, Ethel Corry of Alexandria, VA.

Anne was preceded in death by her husband John who died on July 13, 2007; parents and brother, Frank Corry.

The family would like to thank the staff at Edenbrook of Rochester, Mayo Hospice and the young volunteer who brought in a harp to play for Anne.

Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Please accept my deepest sympathy. May the Bible's promise at Rev. 21: 4 be a great comfort. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." Isaiah 26:19 says: "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." My deepest condolences and prayers that God's promises comfort you now and forever.
