Obituary of Carolynn Joy Struck-Loos
Carolynn Joy Struck’s hard fought battle with Alzheimer's disease mercifully ended on September 29th at The Dalles Health and Rehabilitation Center. All she experienced during her 81 years formed her into a wonderful and beloved woman. Born in 1937 on March 30th, Carolynn joined her parents, Warren and Almeta Rowland, in White Salmon where she would later attend Columbia High School before marrying Gene Struck in June of 1954. Together they had three children: Donald, Ronald, and Cindy. She displayed admirable resilience following the deaths of her first husband, Gene, and second husband, Ramon “Tigger” Loos. She then moved to the Rowland family farm with her sister, Ramona “Sugar” Lauterbach, and the two are now together again in Heaven. Carolynn lives on through her three children and brother, Tony. From them she also has numerous nieces and nephews, six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Her impact on the people of White Salmon, Lyle, and Husum will reverberate for decades more, with all who knew her remembering her lovingly. Please join us in memorial of Carolynn at 3 o’clock on October 12th at the Gardner Funeral Home.
