He graduated from Southwest Texas State Teacher’s College (Texas State) in 1958. On August 30, 1958 he married Roy Evelyn Stough of Grand Saline, TX. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. Norwin was a member of the Optimist Club of Corpus Chrisi, TX and the Lyons Club of Winnsboro, TX. He had many accomplishments in the retail industry, was a loving husband, compassionate father and a faithful friend.

Norwin is proceeded in death by his parents Walter F. and Adela Rathke Schoenfeld and one infant brother, Herman Lee Schoenfeld.

He is survived by his wife, Roy Evelyn Stough Schoenfeld, his children and their spouses, Allyson Baker, Cleveland, TX, Paul (Rosie) Schoenfeld, College Station, TX, Leanne (Charles) Simmons, Jasper, TX and Deanne (Todd) Huebner, College Station, TX.

  1. So sorry for you loss. Mr. Schoenfeld has always had a special place in my heart. I have many great memories of spending time at the Schoenfeld house growing up.

  2. Norwin was a good college room mate. He helped me to establish good study habits, was a good influence, and a good friend.

    I am sorry for your loss.

  3. Dearest Roy & Family – What a jewel Norwin was! I feel honored & fortunate that I knew him. Norwin had a knack for making anyone laugh & enjoy life. I know you will miss him terribly, but please know that everyone who knew him will think of him often. I pray that God’s unending love will give you strength and peace in the days to come.

  4. Sincere condolences to the Schoenfeld Family from Leonard Meinke (Yoakum High School Class of 1946)

  5. Norwin Schoenfeld served his country with honor during the Korean War aboard the Navy destroyer USS Knapp DD-653. Of course he was known aboard ship by his nickname “Tex” and I can assure he counted every man on that ship as his friend. He had a great attitude and sense of humor, and all his shipmates knew they could count on him in time of need. He will be sorely missed by his friends and shipmates. Our heartfelt sympathy to Roy Evelyn and we will keep the family in our prayers.
