Doris M. Schneiss (nee Roehrdanz), 89, passed away peacefully Saturday, May 14, 2016, at The Kathy Hospice of West Bend. She will remain forever in the hearts of her family and friends. She was born April 19, 1927, to Walter and Gertrude (nee Held) Roehrdanz. She married Donald Schneiss on Dec. 7, 1946. Her greatest pride and joy was always her family.

To honor Doris’ wishes a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
