Obituary for Mary Schwenke

Mary Schwenke, of Sheboygan, passed away Tuesday, June 25, 2019, at Sharon Richardson Community Hospice in Sheboygan Falls. She was 77 years old.

Mary was born September 22, 1941 in Miami, FL, the daughter of Harris and Clara (nee Hood) Johnson. She graduated from High School in Haines City FL, and later went on to earn an Associates Degree in Accounting from Waukesha County Technical College. She worked as an accountant, computer trainer and travel agent. Mary, along with her husband, worked as a rep for SkyMed Emergency Evacuation Services.

On November 17, 1979, she was united in marriage with Stanley Schwenke in Lake Wales, FL. The couple resided in Sheboygan, as well as Texas during the winter months, and enjoyed traveling across the United States.

Mary was a member of St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran Church in Howards Grove and Abiding Savior Lutheran Church in Weslaco, TX. She enjoyed cooking, fishing and boating. Her passion was traveling with family in their Airstream and cruises – Alaska was her favorite. Above all, she loved being with her family.

Mary is survived by her husband of nearly 40 years, Stanley and her children: Lisa (Paul) Kelly of Sevierville, TN, Charles (Julie) Butler and Mary Catherine (Michael) Orville, both of Sheboygan.

She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
