Nancy Ann Strada passed away suddenly on July 7,2019 in Bangor Maine. At the time of her death, Nancy was returning from a tour of the Canadian Maritime Provinces with her husband of fifty years, Henry Curtis “Hank” Strada.
Nancy was bornin Oswego, New York on February 25, 1947 to Clayton and C. Jane (O’Donnell) Fleischman. An only child, Nancy attended Saint John’s Parrish School and later Oswego Catholic High School. During high school she played the organ for three morning masses before going to school.
After graduating high school, Nancy enrolled at Oswego State University where she eventually earned both bachelor and master’s degrees in History/Education. Perhaps more importantly, Nancy met Hank at OSU.
Nancy began her career teaching Social Studies in West Genesee High Scholl in Camillus. She would later teach at Scarsdale Middle School and Saint Anthony’s School in Silver Lake, NY.
Nancy married Hank on June 28, 1969. They would have two children, Henry (b. 1973) and Edward (b. 1976).
After staying home for Henry and Eddie’s early years, Nancy returned to work in a new field – early childhood education. Beginning at Church in the Highlands School in White Plains, NY and later at Holy Spirit School in Stamford Connecticut, Nancy taught both pre-kindergarten and kindergarten. Finally, she found what was to become her professional home, Holy Family School in New Rochelle, New York first in pre-kindergarten and then kindergarten. For nearly 20 years Nancy was a fixture at the school. She remained in contact with many of her former students from the day they left kindergarten until long after they were out of college.
Perhaps even more memorable than her educational career, were those things that those who knew her best will remember the most. She was an accomplished cook and baker. Her love of quilting often turned into “baby quilts” to welcome the children and grandchildren of friends and family into this world.
Even prior to retirement, Nancy was a regular volunteer at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, NY. Many a patient’s day was made a little easier thanks to one of her wheelchair bags and lap robes.
Nancy was a member of the Women’s Club of White Plains, the Our Lady of Sorrows Gladhatters, the White Plains chapter of “Stitch ‘n Bitch” and Village Squares Quilting of Scarsdale, the Burke Auxiliary. She was a lector and Eucharistic minister for 30 years at Our Lady of Sorrows.
Nancy is survived by Hank, Henry, Edward and four grandchildren, Curtis, Rosabella, Marion and Pearl.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital or a charity of your choice.

Mrs. Strada--as she will always be known to me!--was simply a magical woman. As my Kindergarten teacher, she exuded a warm, energetic aura that directs how I myself interact with children in my life and which inspires me to this day. She was the epitome of what someone working with young children should be. It is always marvelous to experience people who find their talents, find the best vehicle for them, and fulfill their potential joyously. I was lucky enough to see that at a very young age.

She took loving care of me, so many of my siblings, and so many other children. She has an eternal place in my family's hearts.

Thank you, Mrs. Strada!

May you rest in peace my friend and classmate !! Had the opportunity to visit with Nancy last year at a class reunion. I will remember that talk and subsequent notes to each other for years to come. Hank - please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your beloved wife and sincere sympathy to her sons and grandchildren. God speed my friend and classmate until we meet again.
