Hardin | Friday, December 23 2022 |

Doris J. Schobernd, 88, passed away at her home on December 23, 2022.

Doris was born on June 17, 1934, in Batchtown, Il to the late Isaac Kress and Viola (Brinkman) Kress.

Doris made every house she lived in her home. She embraced each community she lived in Batchtown, Golden Eagle, Alton, and finally Hardin. She made friends, celebrated with others, and served others as the Lord called her to do. She was Grandma Doris to many through the years. Her house was a place to crash after school while drinking room-temperature soda, and eating cosmic brownies. If you were lucky, she would make you a homemade chocolate shake.

She married her true love Charles L. Schobernd on November 5th, 1955. in Batchtown, Il. They celebrated 61 years of marriage before his passing in 2017.  Doris was a homemaker, and a babysitter for MANY families. She loved each child like her own, and had a lasting impact on each family she encountered. She was a member of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Brussels, and a former member of Batchtown Methodist Church. Doris was also a founding member of Resurrection Lutheran Church in Godfrey, Il. Her faith in Christ and love for her neighbor shone in everything and everyone she encountered.

Grandma Doris was survived by her daughter Lisa (Eric) Kallal, of Hardin; four grandchildren that she adored, Molly (Riley) Caselton of Hardin, Tony Kallal of St. Charles, Lucy and Charlie Kallal, of Hardin, two adopted grandchildren Jessie and Jonny Lorts. She was also blessed to live next door to her only Great Grand Daughter Colette Jo Caselton. Also surviving is one sister, her best friend Laverne (Pidge) Gusewelle of Bethalto, brother and sister-in-law, Melvin and Shirley Wieneke of Golden Eagle, sister-in-law Paula Wieneke of Golden Eagle and many nieces and nephews and beloved friends who she was so grateful to have in her life.
