My earliest memories of Annabelle were in Appleton when I walked to school with Johnny. Every night we prayed for the Strouds at bedtime. Her music was memorable, especially at Spencer Lake Bible Camp. She has joined the "girls" in heaven, Adeline Wichman and Claudia Wakefield (my aunt) who all served the Lord as missionaries in Africa. May God give the family peace and comfort in knowing she is now in the arms of Jesus. With deepest sympathy for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. May God wrap His arms around each of you and hold you very close. I have fond memories of our folks being fellow missionaries in Nigeria, Africa when I was a child. I remember "Aunt Annabelle" playing the violin so beautifully. My Mother and Annabelle were classmates in Central Bible Institute in Springfield, MO and if I am not mistaken, were both in each other's weddings. I can only imagine the joyous reunion with her fellow African missionaries when she arrived home!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

What a sweet spirit Annabelle had. God's love shined through her when she smiled. My Dad, Jack Agen will be standing at the gates greating her with a big smile as I'm sure my Grandma Nellie will too. May God surround your family with peace and love.

My sincere sympathy to the family of our dear Annabelle. It was our privilege back in 1940 when she was in the Chicago area, Annabelle would spend many weekends at our home before attending her Chicago Symphony times. Then also. renewed friendship later in WI. We not only loved Annabelle as a wonderful friend, but as a tremendously talented musician. Praying for the loved ones.

As a youth in Rice Lake, "Pastor & Sister Stroud" (how we addressed our pastor/wife in the mid-'60s) provided a wonderful time of ministry to our church. They were a really important, and foundational, part of my spiritual growth. I was always moved by Sister Stroud's gift of music (violin). My first visual memory will be of her providing special music for the services. I will also remember having Sunday School class in the living room of the Parsonage. My first CA gathering in Madison was guided by Pastor & Mrs. Stroud. Sister Stroud will always be my model of a pastor's wife. My sympathy to Pastor Stroud, Judy, John, Jim and Joy -- you are blessed with a wonderful Mom and Dad.

Our sincere sympathy to Bronnie and the family. Annabelle was a beautiful, gifted, sensitive and heart-warming person. We remember listening to her stories of Ghana and the passion she had beside her husband, Bronnie. Her music resonated through the halls of church when she played her violin, it is unparalleled to any other. Our prayers to the family at this time.
Darlene Wiegman left a message on November 15, 2016:
Beautiful obituary to honor your mother. I first met Annabelle at New Life Community Church and instantly loved her. We worked together in the ladies ministry where I was challenged and loved by her honesty, humbleness and deep love for her Lord. There will be a huge void in the family but such a glorious homecoming in heaven. Prayers and healing to the loving family.

Our deepest sympathies to the entire family. Annabelle was someone everyone enjoyed being around. She had a quick smile and always a pleasant disposition. We so enjoyed and appreciated her musical talents. She left us with so many fond memories. I can just hear her playing that violin in the portals of heaven. Blessings to all as you grieve her loss.

Condolences to Pastor Bronnie and all the family. Sis Stroud was a very gifted and amazing woman. She impacted my life greatly in my teen-age years. I still remember her teaching our Youth Group, those scriptures we memorized and the lessons still are with me every day. May God bless and comfort you all!
