Marie Schroeder, mother of ALCM’s copy editor Anne-Marie Schroeder Bogdan, died March 29, 2022. Anne-Marie’s brother Nathan writes: “Cathy Lessmann [of Crossings] and Brenda Light [from Bethel church] were singing hymns as she passed; and the Mass in B Minor had been playing on a continuous repeat for the last day or so. She was very much at peace, and ready (if not positively eager) to go.”

Nathan also wrote this on a Facebook post on the Schroeder reunion page: “The librarian’s book is finished. Marie Schroeder, my mom, librarian, Fulbright scholar, theologian, world traveler, chorus soprano, artist, wife, mother, etc., died peacefully today (March 29, 2022).”

Eternal rest grant to her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine on her.
