Bev Stroh Obituary
January 1957 - April 2009
A lovely remembrance of Bev from her sister, Sherry, on the UP200 web site:
Bev led a very private struggle against kidney disease. After dealing with many medications, a transplant, and finally dialysis, she lost her fight on April 29.
Bev developed and maintained the UP 200/MR/JP web site. She loved mushers and their teams and was a huge supporter of sled dog sports. She was a warm, fun loving, and valiant person.
At Bev's request, cremation will take place and no service will be held.
If you care to send her husband a sympathy card his address is:
