Joanne Schroeder, 79, of Palm Harbor, passed away February 07, 2018 at Suncoast Hospice in Palm Harbor, Florida. She was born in Barton County, Missouri to John F. and Stella L. Kaderly on April 25, 1938. She was married to Gordon P. Schroeder on May 17, 1997.

She is survived by her loving husband and caretaker, Gordon.

The family is planning a private Celebration Of Life ceremony. 

Joanne was a long time resident in various places in the state of Missouri where she was born; she only recently moved to Florida. She went to high school at Mindenmines High School and graduated in 1956. After the birth of her 3 children, she went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Central Missouri State College, graduating in May 1971. She worked as an Elementary School Teacher, teaching third and fourth grades for several years. She had a passion for cooking. She also loved to sew, read, enjoyed bird watching, and playing card games and board games. She had a “green thumb” and could nurture and grow any kind of plant, and although she was not a horticulturist, she could name just about any plant and tree. She enjoyed music, dancing, traveling and spending time with her family. She had an outrageous sense of humor and was known to plan elaborate practical jokes; she loved to laugh out loud and make those around her laugh as well. 

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Suncoast Hospice for their support in her final days.
