Mary A. Schoemer, age 86 of Sheboygan passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 8, 2023 at Pine Haven Disciple Home after a courageous battle with cancer. Mary was born March 10, 1937, in Sheboygan to the late Albert and Stella (Bittner) Wehner. Mary attended Holy Name of Jesus Parish Elementary School and graduated in 1954 from North High School. On November 25, 1967, Mary was united in marriage to Tom Schoemer at Holy Name of Jesus Church and happily celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2017. Over the years Mary enjoyed her many employment experiences doing secretarial work. She was employed at St. Nicholas Hospital in admitting, Citizens Bank of Sheboygan in Human Resources and Payroll Departments, Sheboygan Area School District as a Substitute Secretary, and Marsho Family Medical as a receptionist in the X-Ray Department. Mary was a current member of St. Dominic Catholic Church, a former member of the funeral choir at St. Dominic, a former Food Pantry volunteer at St. Dominic, and was a volunteer for Meals on Wheels for over 40 years. Mary enjoyed participating in various exercise classes, walking “the route” in her neighborhood, biking, and hiking. She was an avid Milwaukee Brewers, Green Bay Packers, and Milwaukee Bucks fan. Over the years Mary and Tom traveled all over the United States including Alaska and Hawaii as well as many European destinations. Mary was extremely dedicated to her family. She especially loved attending anything that involved her grandchildren. They were so very special to her and brightened her days. Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law Sara (James) Opgenorth of Sheboygan, grandchildren Evan Opgenorth and Anna Opgenorth. She is also blessed to be survived by many special nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
