CORNELIUS (Con) Schroeder 1916 – 2009
On Saturday, October 31, Con’s prayer was answered and he went to be with Jesus after a well fought battle against cancer. He will be sadly missed by Jeanette, his wife of 62 years, four sisters, two brothers, a host of friends and many who called him Grandpa Con. He was born in the Ukraine and immigrated to Canada in 1926, living in Manitoba and Alberta until his move to Kelowna in 1994.
His many talents were manifest in the custom homes he built, painting with oils and pastels, his love of animals and birds and foremost, his dedication to God’s work and Word.
He loved to work with a smile. Our sincere gratitude for the compassionate care given by the staff of the
Central Okanagan Hospice House. A memorial service
will be held at Trinity Baptist Church. Monday November 9th, 2009 at 1:00pm. Donations to Chain Of Love
Orephanage through Trinity Baptist Church
in lieu of flowers would be welcomed. Arrangements in care of Everden Rust Funeral Services www.everdenrust.com 250-860-6440
