Obituary for Omson Finley Schroeder

SCHROEDER, Omson Finley, age 72, of Oregonia, passed away Tuesday, February 14, 2023, at Bethesda North Hospital in Cincinnati.

A brilliant, true Norwegian in character, Omson was talented in many aspects of his life. He was a welder in the shipyards in Seattle, a bookkeeper, a landscaper, an artist, a potter, and finally, a farmer. He was a member of Subud. He greatly enjoyed nature and music. As a child from a family of tailors, he had a proclivity for nicely made, tailored clothing. During the holiday season, having the family gather for Christmas dinner was a cherished tradition. Among many things, he will be remembered for the love he had for his family and how proud he was of his two children.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Clifford and Dagmar Schroeder, and brother, Dag Schroeder. He is survived by his wife, Anna; two children, Evelyn Schroeder (fianceé Scott Uphus) and Roberta Schroeder; one brother, Kenneth, and wife, Kathie Schroeder; and dear friend, Raymond Devine.

Private services at a later date. Stubbs-Conner Funeral Home will be serving the family. If desired,
