Patricia Ann Schonberg, our Mother, friend, and mentor passed away February 20, 2020 at 91 years old. Mom was born on October 6, 1928 in Marysville, California to Bernard and Dorothy Peters, and spent her early teenage years on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. She watched the bombing of Pearl Harbor on the morning of December 7th, 1941 from the porch of her family home. When she was just 19, Mom became smitten with a tall, blonde, blue-eyed motorcycle riding man named Russ Schonberg. They married on June 10, 1948 in Auburn, California and she set off on her life goal of being a wonderful wife and mother. Though she originally wanted a baker’s dozen, reality stepped in and she contented herself with six children. Our Mom gave us life, nurtured us, kissed us, taught us, and fought for us. Most importantly, she loved each child unconditionally, although at times I’m sure that was a stretch.
