  • Lucille “Lou” Klingensmith Schinnerer, age 91, of Hot Springs Village, passed away Friday, January 12, 2018 in her home. She was born in Somerset, Ohio on March 20, 1926 to Elmer and Katherine Tischler Klingensmith.

    Lou and Walt raised their children in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, and loved spending time fishing at their vacation retreat on Manitoulin Island in Ontario. She was an avid bowler and enjoyed singing soprano in the church choir. She was loved by and blessed with so many good friends and neighbors. Her father, who was a Lutheran minister, performed her marriage ceremony and was a large influence in her love for the Lutheran church. Her spirit of giving, volunteering, and her happy personality drew many to her. Her legacy will be carried on through those who loved her so much.

    I was Lou's Avon Lady for years and enjoyed her sweet spirit for life.She always had to time to visit. Then we would see each other at Christian Women's Luncheons to visit. Such an elegant lady in every way, she was just fun to be around. Yes, she will be missed by her family and friends. Sincere Sympathy for all who loved her.


    No matter the age of person, when we lose someone in death it is most distressing. May you find comfort from the promise Jesus makes at John 5:28, 29. That scripture tells us that "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out."
