Life Sketch for Judith Lynne Schroeder


Judith Lynne Schroeder, 64, died on Thursday, January 02, 2020 at her home in Sedgwick, Kansas.


Judith was born on May 21, 1955 in Moundridge, Kansas to Harley and Patsy (Marks) Lechner. 


Judith married Earl Keith Schroeder on July 11, 1980 in California.  They were married for thirty nine years prior to her death.


Judith was a very gregarious person who loved people and working with them. She volunteered for many different things including the following: Emergency Medical Technician, Valley Hope Addiction Center, Church choir and coaching little league baseball.  She enjoyed her community and being with people. Her home was always open to people, especially children.


Judith was musically inclined; playing the piano and teaching her children to play and enjoy music.  She loved to shop, cook and not gamble. Recently Judith dealt with heart disease.  It affected how she cooked and forced her to be more home bound. It did not shake her faith in God. Her children will remember her as someone who was adventurous, a fantastic person, and one who deeply loved her family.



She is survived by her husband: Earl Schroeder; children: Mia Wright, Tara Brown, Aron Schroeder and Eric Zerger; brothers: David, Mark and Mike Lechner; Sisters: Connie Boatwright and Dana Lechner; and eight grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents: Harley and Patsy Lechner.
