Sweitzer, Ralph Louis* (TC Palm)  
Ralph Louis Sweitzer VERO BEACH, FL On July 25 at 6:45 PM 2015 Ralph Louis Sweitzer, Sr. (95) of Vero Beach, FL, a kind-hearted, dearly beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and uncle, departed his life here for eternal peace in paradise guided by the hand of God. Ralph, affectionately known to his friends and family as "Ralphie", was born o February 7, 1920 to James Francis and Louise Myrtle Sweitzer in Baltimore, Maryland. Ralph was the youngest of three sons. He was a good student, but, at the age of 16 he left school to explore his mechanical talent. Ralph went to work at the Glen L. Martin Aircraft Co. and soon worked his way up to airframe inspector. Ralph designed and inspected engine mounts for several of the bomber types being produced for the war effort by Martin Aircraft. His first child, Robert, was born in 1942; his second child, Ralph Jr., followed in 1952. In 1944 Ralph's deferments for military service at Glen L. Martin Co. ended and a tour of duty started in the U.S. Army. After basic training in Camp Blanding FL he was shipped to the European theater by way of England. Ralph was a member of the 3rd. Division and fought alongside his buddies through 4 major battles in France and Belgium. During his last battle, "The Battle of the Bulge" he was seriously wounded after leading his team to silence a machine gun that had the advancing Army pinned down. His injury from an air-burst 88 shell cost him his hearing on his left side and a severe wound in his left shoulder and back from shrapnel. His hospitalization and recovery lasted for a year. Ralph was awarded the Bronze Star for his heroic leadership during that engagement and awarded a Purple Heart for his injuries. In 1952 Ralph had brain surgery to stop the constant ringing in his head due to pressure on his 8th nerve. Just recently the French government awarded Ralph their highest honor for his service in France, The Legion of Honor. Due to his injuries Ralph was unable to return to his place in the aircraft industry. He was given an opportunity to enter into a family business with his stepfather. He became a master plumber and took over the company in later years. Throughout his life Ralph excelled at everything he ever tried with sports being his passion. This passion came forward in his love of his children. The boys were given every opportunity to excel with his hope and guidance and they were both gifted with his genes. Both sons became master plumbers. One of the interests that kept Ralph going in his leisure life was flying. He owned three planes and earned a private pilots license with instrument certification. He was a little league and pony league baseball coach, a 16/18 football coach, a golfer with 2 hole in one's, a professional bowler, a Baltimore County recreation director and much, much more. Ralph enjoyed his membership in numerous fraternal organizations including the Masonic Order, and as a Shriner, taught new Masons. In 1986 Ralph became a SNOW BIRD and found a winter home in Zephyrhills Florida. Ralphie's life bloomed when he met his soul mate and best friend, Susan, a golf student, who was soon to become his everything. Over the next several years their relationship grew and they became one on their wedding day, April 22, 1995. During those first years together Ralphie learned of Sue's desire to celebrate a festive Christmas Season and he began creating a custom designed Christmas light display that became the envy of many from as far and wide as New England and was recognized by the news media from Tampa Bay and others. Their Christmas display won numerous awards from their township. There was nothing that Ralphie wouldn't do to please his beloved Sue. They enjoyed golfing, bowling, traveling, and meeting new mutual friends, and entertaining. In 2008 Ralph and Sue decided to move to Vero Beach to be closer to Ralph's son and daughter-in-law. Heritage Plantation, a senior citizens community, greeted them with open arms. Ralphie seemed to put down roots wherever he went. Ralph has been blessed with so many friends over the years that we can only say thank you, to all of you that took time to know him as we do. Ralph passed on from this life and into his eternal place in heaven due to a long battle with chronic heart disease complicated by cancer in multiple organs. He was accompanied by family and close friends at his passing. Ralph is survived by his wife, Susan, two sons, Bob and Skip, and his daughter-in-law, Donna, and their families, as well as his grandchildren, great grandchildren, nephews, nieces, and all of Susan's relatives who made Ralph one of their own. On this day all of our lives have changed forever. We have lost a friend, lover, mentor and guiding light, but, in the same note, we have gained an angel looking over our every need. God has given us an angel and now he has taken him to make way for us. Dad, I love you so much. Friends are welcome to join the family for a memorial service for Ralph at 11:00 AM on Monday, August 3, 2015 at Saint Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church located at 475 43rd. Ave, Vero Beach. A reception to celebrate Ralph's life will follow the service at the community center located in the clubhouse of Heritage Plantation located at 1101 Ranch Rd. The entrance is 100 yards south of the firehouse on 82nd Ave. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Heritage Plantation Veterans Day Memorial Fund. Donations can be made to; Heritage Plantation Veterans Day Memorial Fund, C/O Stanley Paxton, Treas. 467 Union St. Vero Beach, Fl. 32966.

Schnelle, Hannaliese Kralemann* (TC Palm)  
Hannaliese Kralemann Schnelle Port St. Lucie, FL Hannaliese passed peacefully in her sleep at her home in Port St. Lucie, FL on May 3, 2015. Born August 12, 1926 in Bielefeld, Germany. Hannaliese lived a long, productive and interesting life. She knew at a young age that she wanted to become a Physician and against her father's wishes (that was not a place for a woman), she pursued her dreams. As a young girl during WWII, she worked as a Red Cross nurse. They set up a treatment centers in the forest and moved by night to avoid enemy detection. Hannaliese studied medicine at the University of Freiburg, West Germany, graduating in 1954. After a two year internship in Hamburg, she immigrated to Canada and continued her education in Saskatchewan, ultimately completing her residency in anesthesiology at the University of Minnesota. While in Minneapolis, MN, she met Dr. Norbert Schnelle, a fellow Anethesiologist and they were married in Rochester on May 16, 1959. Three children soon followed; Gabriela, Gena and Michael. Dr. Kralemann (Dr. K as she was fondly know to her colleagues) was Chief of Surgical Services at the Rochester State Hospital for many years and also served as the Director of the School of Anesthesia for Nurses. Dr. K had a lot of energy. She loved to laugh and have a good time. She enjoyed skiing (all types), camping, horseback riding, sailing and travel. She enjoyed taking care of the sick, spending many an evening back in the Hospital checking in on "special" patients. Weekends were spent on the Mississippi River, where the Schnelles had a home near Wabasha, MN. In 1982 the State of MN closed the Rochester State Hosiptal to save tax dollars. Hannaliese moved on to join the medical team at Fairview Medical Center in Minneapolis, MN, ultimately rounding out her career opening the Ridgedale Surgery Center in January 1984. She retired in 1986 and they moved to Port St. Lucie, FL in 1987 at which point they traveled the world extensively, often on scientific expeditions. Hannaliese continued in the medical field as a volunteer in the local hospitals. Hannaliese always had a twinkle in her eye and trick up her sleeve. She enjoyed surprises-both giving them and receiving them. She will be missed by many. She is survived by her three children, their spouses and four grandchildren.
