Obituary for Johnette M. Schroeder

Johnette M. Schroeder, age 76, of Minooka, IL passed away peacefully November 20, 2019 at the Joliet Area Community Hospice Home, Joliet, IL. She was born March 30, 1943 to the late Joseph and Marcella Zidek.

Johnette was the beloved mother of Renee (Paul) Simek of Plainfield, IL, Gene (Ronda) Babb of Hinckley, IL, and Angela Sicilia of Conroe, TX; the adored grandmother of Andrew, Shannon and Logan Simek, Zachary and Austin Babb, and Ashley and Anthony Koga; the dear sister of Dolores Matthiesen, Joseph (Janis) Zidek, the late John Zidek and the late Mary La Tessa; and the fun-loving aunt of many affectionate nieces and nephews.

Johnette lived a life full of Elvis, the White Sox, landscape gardening, and most importantly for her, family. She loved being outside during the summer, tending to her very large hostas, tulips and roses. She was an incredible grandma and was happiest when she was spending time with her grandchildren. They will always remember going to SoxFest with her and the family trips they took together.
