Obituary

On January 11, 2020 Kathryn Elizabeth Stroud left us to rejoin her late husband, Frederick Alan Stroud to begin their new journey together again.

Kay, as she liked to be called, was born July 27, 1927 in Aurora, Illinois to John and Mildred Eeten. She graduated West Aurora High School in 1945 and then went on to Illinois Wesleyan College graduating in 1949 with a degree in business. She married her fellow student Fred on December 17, 1949.

During their 63 year marriage Kay and Fred resided in the Chicago area as well as Toronto and Montreal Canada. Their last home was in Eagle River, Wisconsin at Milestone Senior Living. An important aspect of their life together was the exploration of the world. Their favorite place was the Algarve in Portugal, one of the many countries they visited cherishing the lifelong friends they made along the way.

Kay was a person of many layers. She was a devoted wife. As a business woman she partnered with Fred in their advertising business in Canada. As a mother she was able to help with all levels of schooling and always proved to be a great intellectual companion. And as a grandmother she could not have enjoyed more the many accomplishments of her large family and sharing her passions and ideals with them all.

One of her greatest attributes was patience, never challenged more so than being a life long Cub fan who waited for 89 years to see them win a world series.

To carry on Kay’s legacy are her four children; Robert and Terri Stroud of Crestville Florida, Karla Ross and George Costa of Chicago Illinois, Sandy and Bruce Kaitchuck of Eagle River Wisconsin, Jeff and Rose Stroud of Toronto Canada. 15 grandchildren; Ron and Kris Stroud, Jenny and Brad Fout, Benjamin Bailey and Annie, Jeff and Amanda Stroud, Tyson and Kristi Dillow, Michael and Allison Cantu, Aaron and Amelia Cantu, Lindsey Stroud, Ryan Stroud, Katie Stroud, Andrew and Carly Stroud, David and Erin Costa, Kimberley Kaitchuck, Matthew Kaitchuck, Michael Stroud and Stephanie La Torre, and 25 great grandchildren.

Kay is survived by her older sister Mary Carol Frieburg. She was preceded in death by her husband Fred, a brother John Eeten and a granddaughter Olivia Dillow.

Kay was a member of the Eagle River First Congregational UCC.

A local Memorial Service will be held at Milestone Sr Living in Eagle River on Saturday, January 25 at 2:30 pm, as well as a Service that day in Toronto Canada. At a later date the entire family will meet in Chicago for a celebration of their lives.

In lieu of flowers please donate to the Arthritis Society.
