DAPHNE CLAIRE WEATHERSBY SCHROEDER
Daphne Claire Weathersby Schroeder, 87, passed away on February 26, with her family by her side.
Born in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, Daphne worked alongside her family farming tobacco. After graduating high school, she moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where she met her future husband, Rudy, at a YMCA dance.
After they married, Daphne and Rudy relocated to Queens, New York, eventually settling down in Twinsburg, Ohio, to raise their family. Daphne was busy with her three children, Laura, Sharon and Glenn, as Rudy was away for work most weeks. Weekends were busy with family activities and countless parties throughout the years. Daphne was an amazing host and cook. She made the best pecan pie you ever had!
Daphne loved to walk and work on puzzles. But what she loved most was being a mother and grandmother, and she was the best. If you had the pleasure of knowing her, you were one of the lucky ones. She was a true southern belle filled with charm, kindness and love.
We miss her!
Daphne will be remembered by her husband of 65 years, Rudolph Schroeder; children, Laura Lenke, Sharon Stemen (Jim Stemen) and Glenn Schroeder; by her siblings, Norman Weathersby, Marie Richards and Pauline Wells, and by her grandchildren, Mitchell Lenke, Claire and Cody Stemen, and Jocelyn and Zack Schroeder. Daphne also will be forever remembered by her numerous nieces and nephews and dear friends.
Her family is planning a memorial service to celebrate her life, in the near future. Online condolences to reebfuneralhome.com.
