d. August 26, 2023

New Richland, Minnesota

VERNA LEONA SCHOENROCK, age 90, of New Richland passed away at her home on Saturday, August 26, 2023.

 

Verna was baptized at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Mankato, MN. She was confirmed at Evangelical Lutheran Church in St. Clair, MN. She graduated from St. Clair High School in 1950. She was united in marriage to Lester Herman Schoenrock on December 20, 1950. They farmed together until his passing in 1972. She continued to farm with family and never completely retired even if it meant she could only prepare them meals or furnish shuttle service between fields. Verna enjoyed people and volunteered at the New Richland Care Center for several years. She helped with making quilts at Hosanna Lutheran, enjoyed gardening, baking cookies, and loved watching her grandchildren’s sporting events.

 

Verna is survived by children, Loren (Marlene) Schoenrock, grandchildren, Chad and Leah, Linda (Jeff) Groskreutz, grandchildren, Tyler and Katie, Lesa (Rod) Hullopeter, grandsons, Brian, Brady and Brent, Leon (Beth) Schoenrock, grandchildren, Betsy and Benjamin; 18 great-grandchildren; and brother, Wally (Phyllis) Birk. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lester; her parents, Erick and Olga Birk; sister, Friedella Mosher; and brother, Arthur Birk.

 

Funeral Service will be at 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 2, 2023 at Hosanna Lutheran Church in Mankato. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will be at the First Lutheran Church Cemetery in Waldorf.
