Mr. Schoenheiter was born in Germany, May 1, 1868. He was orphaned as a child and was taken into the home of his god-parents. When he was 22 he came alone to St. Louis, Mo., to the home of an older sister.

He and Mary Eickhoff were married at Columbia on Nov. 30, 1912. Three years later, they came to Grand Island to establish their permanent home. He entered the employ of Geer Company at that time and with the exception of one year, worked steadily for the company until his retirement seven years ago. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith and was a member of St. Paul's English Lutheran Church.

He is survived by one son, Quitin Schoenheiter, Grand Island; four grandchildren, Marilyn, Loretta, Quitin Jr., and Lan; and by one sister, Mrs. Tena Doyle, of East St. Louis, Ill. He was preceded in death by his wife, who died of May 30, 1951; his parents; and brothers and sisters.
