Priscilla Stannard Schoeneck

Priscilla Stannard (Creapo) Schoeneck, age 93 of River Falls passed away at home surrounded by her family on October 31, 2021. She was born on May 13, 1928 to Charles and Margaret (Stannard) Sperbeck. Priscilla graduated from New Richmond High School with the Class of 1946. She would further her education attending Hamline University in St. Paul. She was united in marriage to Joseph Creapo in 1949. This union blessed them with five children, Peggy, Joey, Denise, Annie, and Mary. Sadly, he would precede her in death at an early age. Priscilla worked for the University of Wisconsin River Falls for 25+ years and was the Secretary to the Dean of Agriculture Department when she retired in 1990. She later in life remarried to Robert Schoeneck. The couple lived in River Falls before he would precede her in death.

Priscilla was a loving person. Her family was her everything. She was the epitome of a homemaker, who cherished being a wife, mother and grandma. She was a positive light in the community and had a humanitarian heart caring deeply about others. Priscilla had a gentle demeanor and always spoke kindly. She was never without a smile on her face and appreciation in her heart. She was encouraging of people seeking out who they are in this world and supported them whole-heartedly by embracing each person simply as they were. She was blessing to all.
