Lenore M. Strommen, age 90, Janesville, died the morning of Saturday, May 9, 2020 at St. Mary’s Hospital, Janesville. Mom’s tired heart just gave up. Lenore was born November 4, 1929 in Deerbrook, WI, daughter of the late Richard and Lisetta (Fischer) Berg. On June 12, 1953, in Elcho, WI, Lenore married Roland Strommen. He preceded her in death on July 18, 2008.

Lenore was an elementary school teacher in Janesville from 1959 until her retirement from Madison Elementary School in 1988. She was active in the Janesville Education Association as a past President and a member of its bargaining board, and on the Board of the Janesville Concert Association. Lenore was a member of Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church and enjoyed making quilts for the church’s mission projects. Lenore spent many hours in her gardens, enjoyed cooking and baking and was an avid reader.

Lenore is survived by her children: Lynn (Bruce) Monson and Paul (Kathy) Strommen, both of Janesville, Peter Strommen of Ft. Wayne IN and Lori (Dan) Schantz of Muskego; five grandchildren: Corey (Jenny Lund) Larsen, Lisa (Richard) Pember, Brian (Erin Hasz) Strommen, Kelly (Brian) Gratz, and Will Schantz; five great-grandchildren: Alex Pember, Anna Pember, Aurora Strommen, Xadius Larsen and Vincent Heine; sister Emilie Scheerenberger and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
