THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Jeffrey M. Schoenwalder
Jeffrey M. Schoenwalder, 51, passed away Sunday, April 23 with his family at his side.
Born Jan. 21, 1966 in Green Bay, to James and Margaret (Mott) Schoenwalder, he graduated from Southern Door County High School in 1984. On Sept. 2, 1989, he married Christine Bloomquist at Trinity Lutheran Church in Green Bay. They lived most of their married life in Green Bay, where he worked as an electrician before moving into field service work.
When he retired, they moved to their cabin in Crivitz. He loved living there where he could be outside making wood, bow hunting, fishing and "putzing". He enjoyed sitting around the fire with family and friends and when people visited, especially his grandchildren. Family and friends were the world to him and he always helped others with projects.
He is survived by his wife, Chris; two daughters, Stephanie Schoenwalder and and Kayla (Jamie) Strong; three grandchildren; his parents, Jim and Margaret (Marti) Schoenwalder; a brother, Doug (Sarah) Schoenwalder; a sister, Beth (Matt) Roeber; a special step-grandmother, Joan (Virlee) Mott; in-laws, Tom and Delores Bloomquist; two sisters-in-law, Lori Krumrei and Pamela Bloomquist; a brother-in-law, Jeffrey (Tammy Malcore) Bloomquist; grandmother-in-law, Marie Bloomquist and many aunts; uncles; nieces; nephews; cousins and dear friends.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, James and Wilma Schoenwalder; maternal grandparents, Dorothy and Robert Mott Sr. and an aunt, Diane Mott.
