Matthew C. Schroeder

October 8, 1982 — February 6, 2018

Matthew C. "Matt" Schroeder, age 35, passed away on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, at UW Hospitals & Clinics in Madison. He was born on October 8, 1982, in Lancaster the son of Pat and Karen (Kjos) Schroeder. Matt attended Lancaster High School where he was the manager for wrestling and football and during his senior year he was the honorary captain when they won the state championship in football. He graduated from Lancaster High School in 2001 and furthered his education at Southwest Wisconsin Technical College in Fennimore, earning a degree in Auto Body. Matt farmed, was employed at the Cassville Power Plant until it closed, and most recently farmed his family farm. On September 17, 2011, he was united in marriage to Jenna Mezera at the First Presbyterian Church in Lancaster. Together they have one daughter, Nevaeh. Matt was an avid sports fan, especially the Minnesota Vikings, Milwaukee Brewers, and Wisconsin Badgers. He also enjoyed camping, deer hunting with his in-laws, trap shooting with his nephews and brothers-in-law, and a good game of cards. Matt dearly loved spending time with his princess, Nevaeh and his queen, Jenna and caring for foster children. Matt had a determination and a will that enabled him to be a 21 year cancer survivor. He could light up a room with his smile and his outlook on life. Matt will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
