LeAnn Stroman, age 65, of Tucson, AZ, died Friday, January 21, 2022. LeAnn Marie Heeke was born September 15, 1956 in Port Huron, MI. She was the daughter of Norman William and Phyllis Ann (Hufnagel) Heeke. LeAnn grew up in Imlay City. She was a 1974 graduate of Imlay City High School. She married Patrick Allan Stroman on August 26, 1978 in Port Huron, MI. After high school LeAnn studied to become a dental hygienist.
LeAnn Stroman was a devoted wife, mother and friend. To those fortunate enough to have met her and become close to her, you would have seen how kind hearted and caring she was. As her daughter, I can attest to the unconditional love and compassion she showed throughout her life. Always there if you needed an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on, no questions asked, she’d be there. It’s difficult to calculate the actual number of my own friends that came to her and I in times of need, but she always took them under her wing in whatever capacity she could. The way our family, the Heekes see it, is that if you’re a friend of one of our family then you’re a part of the family too. In saying this, I have witnessed how selfless she was, how giving and helpful she could be to so many people over the years. The light that shined from within her heart and soul will surely be missed by all of those who cared for her. May her spirit be free to fly endlessly through the cosmos and heavens amongst all the lost loved ones whose time came before hers. Her light, her love, her shine, will be missed but never forgotten and will continue to shine in all those who remember her and share her stories. Please, if you have fond memories of LeAnn, write them down, tell them again and again, for to share them is what will keep her alive in our hearts and minds.
LeAnn is survived by her daughter, Kiley Cienna Stroman of Northam, Western Australia.

She was the daughter-in-law of Nancy Stroman of Imlay City; sister-in-law, Terri (Larry) Kohler of Imlay City; and brother-in-law Chuck (Jill) Stroman of Lansing. Also surviving are several nieces, nephews and cousins.
