Kathrine Morris Schoew, 97, passed away peacefully on January 20. Born November 26, 1920 in Richmond, she was the daughter of Charles W. and Kathrine Cabell Morris.
She was a proud member of The Colonial Dames of America and fondly remembered childhood summers visiting her grandmother at Point of Fork, the family home near Columbia, Virginia.
In the early ‘40s, she met and married F.W. (Bill) Schoew, Jr., an Army Air Corps Test Pilot. His career took them to Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina, but the majority of their marriage was spent in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, with summers in Virginia Beach.
In the late ‘70s, Bill and Kay moved to Virginia Beach for good and lived at the oceanfront. In recent years, Kay has lived at Atlantic Shores Retirement Community.
She is survived by son Rick and wife Alison of Norfolk; daughter Chrissie and husband Roger Powers of Grosse Pointe, MI; grandchildren Carrington Smith and husband Andy of Grosse Pointe, MI; Amy Graziano and husband Paul of South Mills, NC; Coalter Powers and wife Andrea of Wellesley, MA; and great-grandchildren Coalter and Alston Smith and William and Addyson Powers.
At her request, there will be no formal services. She will be laid to rest in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, fairly near where she was born. Contributions in Kay’s memory may be made to the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad at 740 Virginia Beach Boulevard, Virginia Beach, VA 23451 or at http://www.vbvrs.org.
