It is with profound sadness that the family of Wilma Strand announces her passing Jan. 29, 2019.

Mrs. Strand was of Bourbonnais and Scottsdale, Ariz.

Wilma was described as an amazing wife, mother and friend. Among her many gifts, she was an extraordinary fine artist and enjoyed a lifelong passion for golf.

Her loving marriage to Frank Strand, of Bourbonnais, brought her joy and a new extended family for whom she cared deeply. Surviving are her daughter, Cynthia Owen, and husband, Kerry, of Scottsdale, along with Jayme and Harry Simmon, of Bourbonnais, Roger and Barbara Strand, of New Bern, N.C.; and their children and grandchildren.


Wilma’s lively spirit and kindness will never be forgotten by those she touched.

Her family said, “We know she will be greatly missed. Just as I know she will miss all of you.”

Memorial donations may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.

A celebration of her life will be in Kankakee, to be announced at a later date.
