Becky, husband Professor “Dolf” Schroeder and many of their Missouri Heritage authors.

Rebecca Boies Schroeder grew up without many books. She lived on a farm in north Louisiana, in an isolated area at that time, where she developed a hunger for reading.

She spent the rest of her life feeding that hunger. She died on Sept. 14 at 97 years old.
