  1. Sorry to hear about your Dad, Len. We are thinking about you and your family. Take care.

  2. Fred and I would like to convey our condolences and those of the Oyen community. John and Dorothy contributed much to this community and will be remembered by many. The Oyen Echo would very much like to print John’s obituary and photo if granted permission. This is our way of documenting history of those who were part of this community’s history.

  3. Sympathy to the family of John Schroeder,

    We were so sorry to hear of Uncle Johnny’s passing while we were in Mexico. He was a wonderful, humerous, thoughtful and loving Uncle. We will treasure our last visit with him at the Annual Gadsby Decoration Day this past August. He always had a wave and glint in his eyes when he saw us, not to mention a big hug.

    Rest in Peace Uncle Johnny,


    Louanne and Alyn Olive
