Lowell E. Schoenherr
Lowell Edmund Schoenherr, a good man, completed a good 87 year life on this earth on April 14, 2014. Lowell is survived by his wife of sixty-two years, Patricia (Brunner), daughters Susan Stratta (Paul Bass) of Omaha, Nebraska and Kim Ramquist (James) of Bloomington, Minnesota and sons Christopher (Diane) of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin and Kent (Beth) of West Lakeland, Minnesota and grandchildren Michael and Erin Stratta, Grayson Vangen, Raela and Lowell R. Schoenherr. He was preceded in death by his parents, mother and father-in-law (Pat and Mary Brunner) sister and brother-in-law (Jean and Elmer Klaprat.)
Lowell was born in Wausau on January 16, 1927 to Richard and Linda (Drum) Schoenherr. He proudly served his country in World War II after which he earned his degree from the University of Wisconsin - Madison and began a successful forty year career at Wausau Insurance.
Lowell enjoyed a wide variety of hobbies that included stamp collecting, wood working, history and growing roses. He was an accomplished photographer and had great passion for music that ranged from opera to jazz, swing to classical. He loved Green Bay Packer and UW football games, at least in part because he met Pat at a UW football game in 1949.
He will be remembered as a loving husband, wonderful father, and a man of integrity and wit. He will be missed but has left this world a much better place.
A memorial visitation will take place on Monday, April 21, 2014 from 2:00 pm until 3:30 pm at Brainard Funeral Home, 522 Adams St., Wausau. Lowell will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.
