Our father passed away on March 24, 2006. Here is the obituary that was published shortly afterwards.
Stephanie Schram Stock remembers that her mom, Corinne Schram used to brag about the best meat and produce in town. The family lived in Olivette from 1967 until 1985 and loved the fact that Dad was always in the store greeting people.
Stephanie’s parents, Louis and Corinne Schram owned a general store in Doniphan, Missouri by the name of Lawrence’s and also excelled in customer service and being in the store as much as possible.
When Dad opened the Kingshighway store in 1948, the property included a Cities Service Gasoline and Auto Service Station. Here is a picture of Dad and Mike in the Cities Service pickup truck.
