Donald “Don” Schween, 89, of St. Croix Falls, WI, husband to Colleen Adams-Schween, passed away peacefully Monday, March 6th, 2023, surrounded by his family.
Born to parents Lewis and Anna, in Iowa, who then moved the family to South St. Paul, MN, where Don attended school and, after serving in the Navy aboard the U.S.S. Macon, went on to a career in Insurance and Banking.
Don was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He had a passion for volunteering which made him a beloved member of his community. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Preceded in death by his brother, Richard (Dick), they both enjoyed organizing fishing trips, traveling, telling stories and spending time with family.
Don is survived by his wife Colleen; his daughter Theresa (Mike) and her family, his sons Rick (Connie), Steve, and Brian (Danielle), and their families; Colleen’s daughters Jamie (Mike) and Josie (Pat) and their families; and Sharon Schween.
