Arlene Mae Schreader, 97, passed away on Sunday, January 23, 2022 in her Rochester home under the loving care of her daughter, Pamela Schreader, and her grandson, Dustin Schreader.
Arlene was born May 8th, 1924 in Zumbro Falls, Minnesota to parents Rex and Olive Adams. She was an LPN at the State Hospital in Rochester MN and worked at Bear Creek Services. Arlene married Leo Schreader on October 8, 1942.
Arlene kept busy with her immaculate gardens full of gladiolas and varieties of flowers, vegetables, strawberries, and an apple orchard. She loved painting nature, landscapes, and flowers. Arlene enjoyed puzzles, bingo, and Skip-bo. She was an amazing cook and baker. She loved baking pies for friends and family. Arlene had a passion for life with many interests and hobbies but what she loved more than anything was her family, friends, and her faith in Jesus.
Arlene is survived by three of her children, Kenneth Schreader of Janesville, Robert (Bonnie) Schreader of Oronoco, and Pamela Schreader of Rochester, as well as nine grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and 6 great great-grandchildren.
Arlene was preceded in death by her loving husband Leo, and her sons Jerry, Michael; siblings Ralph Adams, Leroy Adams, Rodrick Adams, Maxine Mehrkens, and Charlene Fellows. Together again they will all be in Heaven.
Because of the current situation with the pandemic, we are choosing to have a private family gathering to celebrate her life at a later date.
