She married Jeff Strieker of Breese on Nov. 19, 1994, at St. Bernard Catholic Church in Albers, and he survives in Breese. Her husband was a former superintendent for the Litchfield School District.

She graduated from Belleville East High School in 1988 and earned her B.S. degree in speech communications and business administration from McKendree College in 1992.

She enjoyed playing in the Bent Oak Women’s Golf League for the CC Buds and was very generous to local fundraisers and charities. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with and watching anything that her children were involved in.
