Albert Schroeder




Albert Schroeder, 87, and his wife Lena, 83, of St. Joseph have passed away from a car accident. Albert passed on June 30, 2016, and Lena on July 2.

Albert and Lena were married on a cold January day, but the fire of their love and devotion burned brightly for 61 years. Constantly at each other’s side, they walked, gardened and bargain-shopped together. They even left this earth together.

Albert was an accomplished brick mason, and regularly helped family and friends with carpentry and repair projects. His handcrafted birdhouses created a bird habitat in their backyard. Lena was a baking and cook extraordinaire. They hosted many feasts with her legendary pies, breads, cakes and jams. Albert and Lena cherished their family, friends and neighbors.

They loved their Lord, and weren’t shy about sharing the Good News. They were members of the Washington Avenue Church of God in St. Joseph.

Albert was born in Lithuania to Edmund and Auguste Schroeder. Lena was born in Lithuania to Liudvikas and Ona Fetingis.

Their sons are Rein (Lisa) Schroeder of Union Pier, and Ed (Aliece) Schroeder of California. Their granddaughters are Jennifer (Matthew) Hutchinson and Karrin (Josh) Winslow.

Albert is also survived by brother Otto Schroeder of Illinois, sister Meta (Witold) Jungblut of Stevensville, and brother-in-law John Macaitis. Albert was preceded in death by sisters Wanda Macaitis and Zina Balandis.
Lena is also survived by brother Arturas Fetingis of Texas and sister Emma Viliunas of Illinois. Lena was preceded in death by sister Meta Jackowitz.
