Enos M Schrock

Enos M Schrock, 86, of Rochelle, VA, passed away at his home on January 12, 2024, following a long illness with Parkinson's Disease. He was born on August 17, 1973, in Dover, Deleware, to Moses M. and Elizabeth (Amstutz) Schrock. On December 9, 1956, he married Nora Yoder, who survives. 

In 1957, Enos and Nora moved from Stuarts Draft, Virginia, to help with the founding of Oak Grove Mennonite Church. He was an ordained deacon of the church in 1967. He was a member there until his death. His number one love in life was Jesus and the church.

Telling the neighbors about Jesus was a high priority. He helped with Calvary Mission, a church for African Americans, when segregation was still a way of life in Madison County in the 1960s.

Enos taught a winter term at Calvary Bible School in Aransas for 14 years. Enos and Nora went to Belize as missionaries in 1958 and were there for three years. During the next 13 years, they went back to Belize seven times to help with the work. 

He is survived by seven daughters and one son: Vera (the late Henry) Brenneman of Rochelle, Karen (Paul) Heatwolw of Rapidan, Marietta (Ray) Shank of Rochelle, Violet (Steve) Anderson of Rochelle, Stephen (Marilyn) Schrock of McKenney, Christine (David) Martin of Rochelle, Loraine Schrock of Rochelle, and Connie (the late Nathan) Wagler of Cross Hill, SC.

He is also survived by four sisters and one brother: Mary (the late Leo) Yoder, LA; Lydia (Sam) Kanagy, SC; Anna Mae (Elbert) Detweiler, MD; Moses Leroy (Ruby) Schrock, FL; and Ruth Schrock, NM. 

Enos has been blessed with 52 grandchildren and 95 great-grandchildren.
