BRADENTON, Fla. — Anna Marie Schoellig, 83, born May 14, 1929, in Burlington Flats, to immigrants John Gregory of Russia and Julia Grzywna of Poland, passed away in Bradenton, Fla., on April 2, 2013.

Anna attended school, walking four miles daily, but left her education early to help take care of her siblings.

Anna met Frederick E. Schoellig and, after a short courtship, they were married June 24, 1950, in Burlington Flats, at his family farmhouse. They shared an almost 63-year loving union that saw them traveling the world.

Anna and Fred founded Schoelligs Field Crest Farms, a large dairy and crop farm at 325 Santoro Road in Garrattsville, where they raised their seven children. Those seven children, with her husband Fred, survive her today. They are Betty (Elizabeth) Coutlee, Edmund (Janie), Daniel (Dee), David (Michele), Mark (Alisa), Ann (Emil) (Ellenton Fla.) and Fred (Cathy) Schoellig (Elgin Ore.). Anna is also survived by her 20 grandchildren, Wyatt (Jenn), Jason (Rena), Ryan (Jason), Nick (Andrea), Merrick (Kate), Sara, Mishea (Rich), Adam (Shannon), Nathan, Travis (Lindsey), Jessie (Jason), Denyse (Davin), Dan, Derek, Vincent, Blake, Kari (Joe), Krista (Nate), Kim (Mike), John and 20 plus 1 on the way great-grandchildren. Anna is also survived by her siblings, Helen (Walter) Sinninger, Roman (Donna) Gregory, Evelyn (Lester) Rowe, Henry (Connie) Gregory and sisters in-law, Marjorie Gregory and Clair Clark; 14 nieces and nephews. Anna enjoyed her extended family, exchange student, Alfredo Nichochea of Mexico and foster grandchildren.

Anna is predeceased by her brother, John Gregory; sisters, Veronica Gregory and Anne (Louis) Koslosky; brother in-law; Don Clark; daughter in-law; Jean Schoellig; and great- granddaughter, Abigail Schoellig.

Anna loved the outdoors, gardening (canning and freezing the fruits of her labors), flower beds, picking wild berries, making jam, cooking, baking (cookies and pies), her parakeet blue, farming (working with the “girls,” cows, heifers and calves). She was a workaholic.
