Arlene W. Schoenrock

August 28, 1920 ‒ July 12, 2014

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Arlene W. Schoenrock, age 93, of Mount Vernon, passed away on Saturday, July 12, 2014 at the Ohio Eastern Star Home. She was born on August 28, 1920 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the late William and Lillian (Boelter) Junck. Arlene was a member of Faith Lutheran Church in Mount Vernon.

Although she moved to Ohio from Wisconsin in her earlier years, Arlene never lost the excitement of cheering on the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers and Wisconsin Badgers. Whether it was her unusual collection of elephant figurines or just the companionship from her golden retriever dogs, Arlene was an animal lover at heart. She enjoyed word searches and giving to others when she could, but most important to her was the quality time she spent with her family. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

She is survived by her daughter, Margo (Don) Nuce of Mount Vernon, two grandchildren, Tommy Nuce and Samantha Nuce both of Mount Vernon, two nephews, Gary Wegenke and Ed Reed.

Besides her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene W. Schoenrock, a daughter, Connie Schoenrock and a sister, Willis Wegenke.

A graveside service will be held on Thursday, July 24, 2014 at 1 p.m. in Mound View Cemetery with Pastor Mark Wildermuth officiating.

Memorial contributions in Arlene’s name may be made to Hospice of Knox County or the Knox County Chapter of the American Red Cross.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of the Ohio Eastern Star Home for taking such special care of Arlene.
