In Memoriam: Nancy Lee Wright, Class of 1959

It is with the deepest sadness that we share the passing of Alumni Nancy Lee Wright, Class of 1959 - one of the first graduating classes in the history of American School of The Hague. Nancy recently passed due to complications of a stroke, and is survived by her husband Karl, after 54 years of marriage. Nancy went by her middle name Lee, and spoke fondly of her time at ASH. The photographs are of Nancy during the Class of 1959 graduation ceremony, which also included her brother Robert, and a current photo of her in a favorite hobby. Her husband Karl shared with us:

"She worked for many years in the accounting departments of several different companies and thoroughly enjoyed travelling, collecting teddy bears, building LEGO models, doing jigsaw puzzles, and a variety of other hobbies. She is survived by her husband, Karl Strauch (Missouri), daughter Karla (New York), son Kurt (Maine), daughter Karena (Ohio), son Kraig (California), eleven (11) grandchildren ranging in age from 2 to 27, brother Robert (Florida, also an ASH Class of 1959 graduate), sister Susan (England), sister Ellen (North Carolina, and sister Deborah (Massachusetts)."

We share our deepest sympathies to all of her family, loved ones and all those who knew her. Nancy was one of the first to have been part of the ASH Alumni community, a once small network that now spans across the globe, and to hear of her passing brings great sorrow to us all. Her memory will live on in those who knew and loved her, and the ASH Alumni Community sends strength and love during this difficult time.
