STREUN, Henrica Johanna 'Rita' (nee Verhees) - (May 4, 1928 - April 1, 2017) - Born May 4, 1928 in Aalst in the Netherlands, born premature at a time when “premees” were not expected to live.
She began her fight that day and had never stopped, not in the sense of a physical fight but on several fronts throughout her life.
The eldest of five children “Rita” grew up during WWII in a time of scarcity when food and heating supplies were scarce. She would sometimes wait in line for 2 to 3 hours to get a single egg for her ailing father. This time taught her to be careful with what see had and never to waste. She became very adept at sewing and knitting to make the best use of what they had. She made clothing and shirts, pants and socks go the extra mile.
