You can rewrite the last part with

filterStrategyDecoder : Decode.Decoder FilterStrategy
filterStrategyDecoder =
        decodeWith : String -> Decode.Decoder FilterStrategy
        decodeWith s =
            case s of
                "All" ->
                    Decode.succeed All

                "Active" ->
                    Decode.succeed Active

                "Completed" ->
                    Decode.succeed Completed

                _ ->
           (s ++ " is not a valid FilterStrategy")
        Decode.string |> Decode.andThen decodeWith
