Susan L. Schroeder, 93, passed away on March 15, 2015 at Moravian Manor in Lititz.

Susan was the beloved wife of George H. Schroeder, who died in 1985.

Susan was born in Czechoslovakia, and emigrated to the U.S. with her parents when she was four years old. She grew up in Wayzata, Minn., and attended the Minneapolis College of Business. After raising her children, she worked as an executive secretary at the Cargill Inc. Executive Mansion in Wayzata, retiring after 25 years of service.

Susan and George loved to dance, fish, and garden. Their favorite fishing destination was Balm Lake. Susan’s parents were founding members of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Wayzata, Minn., where Susan was confirmed and married. After moving to a 55-plus community in Plymouth, Minn., in 2002, Susan joined Glory of Christ Lutheran Church, also in Plymouth. Susan’s surviving family members will miss her, but they know that she is with Christ.

She is survived by three children, Greg Schroeder (wife Pat), of Jensen Beach, Fla.; Sandra Bricker (husband Jeff) of Lititz; and Donna Swenson (husband Steve), of Eau Claire, Wisc.; two grandchildren: Britta Endres (husband Michael), in Milwaukee, Wisc.; and Marine Sergeant Eric Swenson, stationed at Cherry Point, N.C. Her brother: Jack Jakupciak; and sisters: Jeanne Friske, and Ann Olson in the Minneapolis area, also survive Susan.
