MIDDLEBURY — Dorothea Aurillia (Benner, Schantz) Schrock was born Aug. 16, 1931, at Skippack, Penn. to Irwin and Susan (Benner) Schantz and grew up in northern Minnesota when her parents moved there to begin mission work in 1938.  

She received Christ into her life as Lord and Savior in her youth and was a faithful Christian believer until her death. On June 22, 2013 at 2:40 p.m. she passed from this life to her eternal home.

On Jan. 1, 1950, at Loman, Minn., she married Harry Schrock Jr. of Goshen.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

She was a fun-loving, compassionate, Godly mother to her children and a faithful loving devoted companion to her husband and a friend to all who met her.

Dorothea was a member of Gospel Haven Mennonite Church, Gosport, where her husband is overseer but both attended South Union Fellowship near Nappanee.

Visitation will be today from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Miller-Stewart Funeral Home, located at 1003 S. Main St., Middlebury.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
