Sinton – Irma W. Schroeder passed away peacefully November 28, 2019. She was 84.
Irma was born in Harrisville, Pennsylvania on July 15, 1935 to James Earl and Edna (Daughtery) Adams.
Irma met her perfect match, Lee Schroeder, while he was stationed in the Army in Pennsylvania near her home town. Irma and her late husband, Lee, were married for 50 years and made Sinton their home where they raised their family. Irma worked for Southwestern Bell in Sinton as a switchboard operator for many years. She later worked at South Texas Savings that later became Prosperity Bank until she retired. Irma was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Sinton more than 60 years. She was a dedicated Sunday School Teacher, church Treasurer, and on the altar-guild. Irma was well known in the community. She volunteered at the Sinton Food Pantry and was active with the 4-H club. Irma enjoyed playing Bunco and dominos with a group of close friends that she loved like family. Irma and her husband loved being outdoors…whether gardening, water skiing, camping, being involved with 4-H projects or hauling their kids to youth rodeos. Their quality time in later years was spent doting on their grandchildren and being involved with their activities. Irma was a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.
