Mary Ann Schoenfelder


January 12, 1935 - January 30, 2016


Mary Ann Schoenfelder was born January, 12 1935 in Bridgewater, SD to Edward and Caroline (Determan) Hoffman. She married her high school sweetheart, Stephen Weber, in 1953. They had six children; she guided and taught her family by her living example. Mary was an outstanding homemaker, talented seamstress, and beautician. She was thrifty, never wanting much because she felt she had everything. Stephen died at the young age of 41. Mary then went on to school to fulfill her dream of becoming a nurse. She worked as an OB nurse at Avera Queen of Peace for 22 years. The Lord found Mary a devoted husband, Raymond Schoenfelder, in 1978 and they enjoyed 37 wonderful years. Together they shared their love of gardening, canning, quilting, woodworking, travel, and camping.


Grateful for having shared her life are her loving husband, Raymond Schoenfelder and her children: Scott Weber, deceased (fiancé, Paula Lynch), Stephanie Turner (Mark), Elk Point, SD, Bruce Weber, Lawrence, KS, Carol Weber, deceased, Mary Fouberg (friend, Shawn Gregg), Woonsocket, SD and Susan Hagen (Bryan), Worthington, MN; along with her 13 grandchildren: Zachary Weber, Hillary Turner (friend, Corri Poore), Cole Turner (Jade), Samuel Turner, Bob Schmitt, Liz Schmitt, Jeremy Fouberg, Lindsey Thompson (Michael), Matthew Fouberg (fiancé, Melissa Ryan), Sarah Fouberg, Jacob Fouberg, Turner Hagen, Carson Hagen and six great-grandchildren. Mary is also survived by her four sisters and one brother: Dolores Goldstine, Bridgewater, Evelyn Garry, Webster, Alida Ahlers, Salem, Sharon Tuschen (Larry), Salem, Jerry Hoffman (Shirley) Bridgewater and over one hundred nieces and nephews.

I adored Ms Mary Ann. The moments that i shared with her were wonderful and will never be forgotten. I had a song that came to mind when i heard of her passing..........."Now my LifeSong sings".........I am positive that you are in a wonderful place filled with wonderful songs filling the air.
May the Lord comfort our dear Ray as this time is hard for him and for all that knew Mary Ann.
We will always love you, sweet Mary Ann. " Now i hear your lifesong sing" on and on.
