Frances Marie Schoenbauer, 79, of Waldorf, MD passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at her home. She was born on April 15, 1941 in Washington, DC to the late, Thomas Thompson and Myrtle (Grove) Thompson.

Sixty-five (65) years ago, Frances married the love of her life, Robert. They have weathered storms and rejoiced in the sunshine of a beautiful life together. They welcomed one son, Robert Jr. and showed him the value of finding your perfect match.

The couple worked together in their furniture repair business, Schoenbauer Furniture Service. Robert worked on repairing and restoring antiques while Frances ran the office and kept the business end of everything running smoothly. Frances could also be found popping into the workshop to get her hands dirty. She was happy to retire in 2014 and spend quality time at her home.

An adventurous woman, she loved to go on cruises and visit new ports of call. She found peace with the sand in her toes and sunshine on her skin. In the evenings, she loved to dance and see the shows. She was an avid fan of Elvis and knew every lyric and would sing them loudly and with exuberant spirit. The only thing she loved more than Elvis was her family. She adored being a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

With a bright smile and heart of gold, Frances made everyone feel loved and cherished. She will be deeply missed and her memories will carry you through until you are reunited once again.

Frances is survived by her husband, Robert Schoenbauer of Waldorf, MD; son, Robert Schoenbauer, Jr. (Joy) of Riva, MD; three (3) grandchildren, Chris Schoenbauer, Brad Schoenbauer and Ryan Schoenbauer and four (4) great-grandchildren; and brother, Thomas Thompson, Jr. of Waldorf, MD. She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas Thompson, Sr. and Myrtle Thompson and siblings, Bernard Thompson, Lawrence Thompson, Ronald Thompson and Betty Young.
