Martha Louise Schroeder (nee Susich) was born on May 18, 1941 in Centerville, Iowa and died on January 26, 2021 at Wilshire Lakewood, Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Her parents were John and Louise Susich. On May 28, 1960 she married the love of her life, Donald William Schroeder, and they remained happily married for 60 fantastic years.
She graduated from Fort Madison High School and soon began a family to whom she devoted her long and loving life. Along with raising her three children she devoted time to service at her church and the American Red Cross.
After they retired, Martha and Don moved to Bella Vista, Arkansas where they lived right on the golf course. Her family was always her greatest joy and she spent many happy hours baking special treats and caring for them.
