FALLS CHURCH, Va. - Holly Beth Strom, 64, from Falls Church, passed away on Aug. 27, 2018, after a battle with cancer.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Roy and Wilma Randa Strom, nephew, Joel Strom, special cousin, Thomas Sprasky, and all her aunts and uncles.

Survivors include life-long partner, Michael Keller, daughter, Heather (Ryan) Susen, son, Ronald Jr. (Ed) Chiapusio, son, Brent Chiapusio, stepson, David (Susan) Keller, grandchildren, Bryce Susen and Mia Keller, sister, Jackie (Jim) Judth, brother Fred (Judy) Strom, many nieces and nephews, childhood friend, Kathy Grbavcich, and her pups, Macy Mae and CoCo.

One of Holly's greatest joys was spending time with her children and grandchildren. She also enjoyed arts and craft projects, camping, swimming, kayaking and fishing.

She was baptized and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in Ironwood, Mich. Holly had a deep belief in God and tried to practice His ways daily to the best of her ability.

Holly graduated from L.L. Wright High School in 1972 and then attended Gogebic Community College in 1973. Her adult life consisted of jobs caring for others. Her final job before retirement was in Dickinson, N.D., teaching English to people from all around the world.

Holly was a very kind, loving person who also had quite the sense of humor. She said nine out of 10 times if you smile at someone, they smile back! She was always willing to help someone out.

Her wishes were to be cremated. Everley Funeral Home in Falls Church handled the arrangements.

There will be memorial services in Falls Church and Ironwood at dates to be announced.
