Doris M. Schneiss (nee Roehrdanz), age 89, passed away peacefully, on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at the Kathy Hospice of West Bend. She will remain forever in the hearts of her family and friends. She was born on April 19, 1927 to Walter and Gertrude (nee Held) Roehrdanz. She married Donald Schneiss on December 7, 1946. Her greatest pride and joy was always her family. She had a passion for canning, freezing and sharing her goods with family and friends, especially her sauerkraut!

She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Doris is preceded in death by her husband Donald, parents, parents-in-law Carl (Norma) Schneiss, brother Clyde Roehrdanz, sister-in-law Julie Roehrdanz, brothers-in-law Doug Edgar and Leroy Schneiss, a dear nephew and niece.
To honor Doris’ wishes a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorials appreciated to the Kathy Hospice (3232 Pleasant Valley Rd., West Bend, WI 53095) or charity of your choice.
A special thank you to the Kathy Hospice for their care and compassion, Paul and Joan Schneiss and their entire family for their love and support throughout the years.
