She was preceded by her parents, Harold McCumber and Lu (Wolmack) McCumber; her husband, Jerry H. Stroud; one sister, Carol Ritzinger; and an infant brother.

Services will be at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 7, at the Thurman Funeral Home in Norborne, Mo., with visitation from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, May 5, at the Norberg Memorial Home, Princeton. A short prayer service with Pastor Brian Moore will follow.
