Ok Soon Schroder, born on March 13, 1933, in South Korea, peacefully passed away on November 9, 2023, surrounded by the love of her family.

Ok Soon, a resilient and compassionate soul, navigated the challenges of growing up in South Korea during World War II. In the midst of those trying times, she discovered love in an unexpected place—falling for an American soldier named Ron Schroeder and exchanging vows at the American Embassy in Seoul, marking the beginning of a beautiful and enduring union. Their love story unfolded against the backdrop of history, leading to a journey that brought her to Ohio in the 1960s.

Together, they built a life founded on love, resilience, and the merging of two cultures. A strong Christian and unwavering believer, Ok Soon’s faith was a guiding light throughout her life. Her devotion to God was evident in the kindness she showed to others, the strength she exhibited in challenging times, and the love she shared with her family.

Ok Soon’s love and resilience were a source of strength, and her faith sustained her through joyous and challenging times alike.

She is survived by 9 nephews and 3 nieces. Ok Soon Schroder will forever be remembered by those who were fortunate enough to know and love her. May Ok Soon rest in eternal peace, her spirit forever alive in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know and love her.
