On April 21, 2021, Mardelle Ann Strittmater peacefully passed away at home.

Mardelle was born on July 14, 1953 in Ogilvie, MN; later moving to La Crosse where she graduated from Logan High School in 1971.

On September 19, 1973, Mardelle married Michael Strittmater. They built a successful life in Rawlins, Wyoming over their 30 years there. She became store manager of City Market Liquor while also raising her children and maintaining a home where all were welcome. She treated everyone equal with no judgement and material items were not so important as family and friends.

She is survived by her husband, Mike, of 48 years; daughter, Jenny (Eric) Bahr; grandchildren, Aly Strittmater, Nicholas Spinner, Allison Spinner, Aleah Bahr; special family friends, Jadin Botcher and Bobby Moss.

    I am so very sad to hear of Mardelle’s passing into Heaven.
    We were Job’s daughter together in high school, and later in life I ran into her in Rawlins, WY, my birthplace and summer home!
    I returned to teach at St. Joseph and we had some great couples times in Rawlins before the oil field moved us on!
    I am so sorry for your loss, Mike, and to all your families.
    She was a true & fun friend I will never forget! I love you, Mardelle! You’re Peace has come, my sweet friend! ❤️✝️
