Terry Schoenecker

August 2, 1964 - November 15, 2019

Terrence J. “Terry” Schoenecker, age 55, of New Prague, died peacefully surrounded by his family on Friday, November 15, 2019 at Ridgeview Medical Center in Le Sueur.  Terry was born on August 2, 1964 in New Prague to Erwin H. and Mary E. (Ademmer) Schoenecker.  He grew up in the Heidelberg area, attended Holy Redeemer Catholic School and graduated from Montgomery-Lonsdale High School.  Terry worked all his life in retail for a variety of grocery/department stores.  He was a collector of many things and loved nothing more than spending time with his family.  Terry left a legacy of a huge heart; he was kind and considerate and never had a bad word to say about anyone.  In recent months, he blossomed during his residence at Ridgeview Medical Center, delighting residents and staff with his ability to draw out and visit with everyone.


Terry is survived by his siblings, Francis Schoenecker of Montgomery, Mary (William) Nichols of Shakopee, James Schoenecker of Shakopee, JoAnn (Dennis) Seurer of New Prague, Dianne (John) Maxson of Montgomery; many nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his parents.


Private family Mass will be held with burial at St. Scholastica Cemetery in Heidelberg.

I will miss our fun talks Terry. I will always remember the look on your face when I pronounced your last name correctly when you came into the NH. I’ll miss our Thursday talks when I would bring in your paper and when you would ask me if it was time for that show with the mean judge. Our talks about family and the catholic school. (nuns) You brought sunshine ☀️ to our days at work the short time you were with us. Rest In Peace Terry you will be missed by all. Prayers to the family

Your family is in my prayers. I didn’t know Terry as an adult. I went to school with him and graduated with him. He was a wonderful person.
