Sylvia Sue Strickland Romberg departed this earth peacefully on September 14, 2021 at the age of 87. Suzy is survived by her husband, F. Arnold Romberg and four of her five children: Marshall (Sue) Romberg, Alice (John Wood), Kate (Larry Clarkson), and son Larry Romberg. Daughter Laura died in an automobile accident in 1982. Suzy is also survived by eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Suzy and Arnold were married on February 11, 1956, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Houston. They lived in varied locations raising their family before finding what would be their final home in 1979. It was an old neglected house in La Grange that needed a complete renovation which took 15 years to accomplish. In 1994, Arnold and Suzy finally moved to La Grange and then soon joined First Presbyterian where the welcome there was so warm they never considered any other church. During the 1990s, Suzy became heavily involved in civic activities and volunteer work in La Grange and in Fayette County. She was also a member of the Fayette County Republican Party.
The Pierce-Arrow Society extends its sincerest condolences on behalf of its members to the Romberg family.
