Obituary for Elaine R. Schoh


Elaine R. Schoh, 82, of Caledonia, passed away Saturday, September 10, 2011, at Caledonia Care and Rehab.
She was born February 3, 1929, in Galesville, Wis., to Gerald and Luella (Bolduan) McWain. Elaine was a graduate of Galesville High School. On October 11, 1950, she married Ralph Schoh in Galesville, Wis. Together they farmed in Wilmington Township, Houston County, Minn., for many years until Ralph preceded Elaine in death on November 5, 1993. In 1994, Elaine moved off the farm and into the city of Caledonia. She was a member of St. Luke's United Church of Christ in Eitzen where she was active in the Women's Fellowship Groups. Elaine loved to have a good time and enjoyed throwing darts in dart league and traveling on bus trips with her friends. Most of all, she looked forward to spending time with her family, especially when her kids that lived out of the area would come home and everyone could be together.
Survivors include seven children, Monica (Dennis) Dotseth of Caledonia, Judy (Alan) Fladhammer of Milton, Wis., Sharon (Tom) Mohelnitzky of Oshkosh, Wis., Robert (Dionne) Schoh of Caledonia, Rita (Richard) Clare of Inver Grove Heights, Minn., and David (Wilma) Schoh and Ralph James (Kim) Schoh, both of Caledonia; 19 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren and one on the way.
