Oct. 7, 2008 – Feb. 4, 2019
Our beloved McKenna Ann Schneider Praus received her Angel Wings Feb. 4, 2019. She was only 10 years old, but she touched the lives of so many in that brief time. A celebration of McKenna’s life will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, March 16, at the North Bend High School Gymnasium.
McKenna loved singing, drawing, sports, building doll houses from recycled materials and going to school. She was school president and very excited about making a difference for her fellow classmates and the entire student body by focusing on better school lunches. McKenna’s love for her family and friends knew no bounds and her positive outlook and contagious smile was a joy to all.
