Marianne Schroyer, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, went home to be with the Lord on January 5, 2020, after a six-month battle with cancer. Originally from Springfield, MO, she was a long-time resident of Lakewood, Ohio.  She most recently served as director of client services for Blue Waters Wealth Advisors of Westlake, Ohio, and was member of the Community Church of Portage Lakes, where her husband, David, serves as pastor of worship and senior adult ministry. 

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Rev. David N. Schroyer; two daughters, Kara (Kyle) LaClair of Richmond, VA; and Krista (Steven) Monaco of San Mateo, CA; and one son, Eric Schroyer of Cleveland, OH; mother, Annabelle Sheridan of Springfield, MO; siblings, Deanna, Carla, Lynn, Greg, and Gail; six grandchildren,  Kathryn, Anna, Sophie and Gracie LaClair, Andrew and Lauren Monaco.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 11, 2020, at 11 a.m. at Community Church of Portage Lakes, 3260 Cormany Road, Akron, Ohio, with a reception to follow.  Interment will be private. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Community Church of Portage Lakes piano fund.

My condolences to the Schroyer family. Marianne was lovely and graceful in every way. I appreciated knowing the Schroyers when Dave was at Northwest Church in Fresno, Ca. Many years later, her kindness is still a fond memory.

Marianne was so welcoming when I joined the choir 2 years ago. I always marveled at her ability to walk in those high heels. I lost that ability many years ago. She was always happy and smiling and if you felt down, her smile always lifted you up. She was the epitome of a Christian woman. Before choir practice, she would always water the plants out front. At the Encore Christmas Banquet, she was smiling and her eyes were bright and sparkling. That's how I will always remember her. To her family, always remember all the good times you had and that you will join her some day. What a celebration that will be!

Dear David and family. I am saddened to hear about your loss. I feel blessed to have met Marianne last year at one of our concerts in Cleveland. I was aware that you were planning to attend the SMS 50th Anniversary celebration but Marianne's illness made that impossible. One of our mutual friends in Springfield let me know of Marianne's passing. We are fortunate to have that network of love from the singers who were part of our international travel team. Please know that I send love and prayers to you and your beautiful family. I am grateful that you have such a big family and I am pleased that you all have each other. All of you are blessed to have had the love and devotion of your lovely Marianne. I know you treasure every memory of her and she will grace your lives forever. Much love. Sam Gordon
