Schoening Obituary
Dorothy Marie Schoening, youngest daughter of Ferd and Mary Schoening was born at Manning, Iowa, December 3, 1919 and passed away at the Coleman hospital at 10 o’clock Monday [August 26, 1940] morning, having reached the age of 20 years, 9 months and 23 days.

She was baptized in the Methodist church. She lived in various communities until 1930 and since that time she has lived in various communities in and around Estherville. She attended grade and high school in Estherville and graduated with the class of 1940.

Dorothy was an affectionate, lovable girl and was very fond of helping others. She had a cheerful smile for everyone and always had a great deal of respect for aged persons.

She has left a vacant place in the hearts of fond mother and father and brother and sister, and will be missed by her many friends who always admired both her personality and spirit.

She leaves to cherish the memory of father and mother, three sisters Hertha, Vern, Myrtle and four brothers, Adolph, Emil, Herbert and Lynn, her grandmother, Mrs. Henry Lakeman, six nephews and two nieces, besides a number of uncles and aunts.

“You smiling lived and smiling went away,
Great heart we would bring tribute to your name.
The courage and mighty power of good,
You brought to us by your grand girlhood.
These live beyond our own brief span of years.
Dear Sister, Great Heart,
The selfless path you trad
Has marked for us Starlit path to God.”

Funeral services were held Wednesday at 2:00 form the Presbyterian church.
