The two were married after she received a bachelor's degree in education in 1949. She later received a master's degree from the Johns Hopkins University. She also attended classes at Towson State University.

During her 30-year teaching career in Baltimore County, she taught English at Towson Junior High School and Milford Mill High School and served as chairwoman of the English departments of Lansdowne and Randallstown high schools.

During her teaching career, she and her husband lived in Randallstown. Mrs. Streat retired about 12 years ago and moved to Ocean Pines.

She was a member of the Community Church and sang in its choir. She was also a member of the Ocean Pines Women's Club, the Ocean Pines Crafts Club, Worcester County Arts Council and was a Berlin Lioness.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Streat is survived by her mother, Norena Brown DiLorenzo of Vineland, N.J.
