Dolores ‘Dee’ Streicker, age 89, died peacefully on January 26, 2018, in Portland, OR, with her adoring daughter at her side. Cherished daughter of Samuel and Ethel (nee Epstein) Tronsky. Beloved wife of (the late) Ned Streicker. Loving mother of Richard Streicker, Gail Streicker (John Burkhardt) and Joel Streicker (Juliette Hirt). Proud grandmother of Rebecca Streicker-Calle, Kate Burkhardt, Miriam Streicker-Hirt and Eli Streicker-Hirt. Dear sister of Sandra (Carl) Gilbert. Aunt of many loving nieces and nephews. Born and raised in the West Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago, graduate of Senn High School, long-time resident of Highland Park, IL. Dee came from one exceptionally loving family and created another with her devoted husband of 65 years; voted ‘Mother of the Year’ 65 years straight years by a small, select group. She learned to drive in her 30s, earned a college degree in her 50s, played an enthusiastic game of tennis into her 80s, and outlasted Hitler, Stalin and the other great tyrants of the 20th century. An exceptionally kind and loving person, with a sly wit and an absolute absence of malice, whose memory serves as example and inspiration. A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Sunday, February 4, 2018, at Holman’s Funeral Home, 2610 SE Hawthorne Blvd., Portland.
