Memories

My memories of this kind loving lady are from many years ago. We had lost our mother and it was hard to get stuff done then not knowing how to do a lot of the household chores--sure my sister & I could cook some but other things did not come that easy. Mrs. Schumaucher taught us how to be good cooks, how to patch pa's overhalls,& the boys Levis, how to fix the turkey & take the bag of stuff out before you baked it. But most important she talked to me & sissy about growing up & female stuff that was hard to talk about so many years ago. She was our fill in, go to & ask questions adopted mom. Few years after I was out of school, married & expecting my fist child...she stepped in with welcome advice again. Those first few months would have not been as easy if not for her.My heart goes out to her family, for she was truly one very special & gifted lady.

Memories

I'm so sad to hear of Mavis passing. My first memories of Mavis is of this really tall lady pinching my 3 or 4 year old chubby cheeks, smiling and saying "there's my little Heidi!" (Irv just plain scared me!) I remember not wanting to take her classes in high school, because I couldn't call her "Mrs. Schumacher", to me, she was Mavis. I remember her helping me work on English homework and patiently help me understand what verbs and prepositions were. I remember walking in the back door and always smelling something good cooking in her kitchen. I remember her love of crosswords. I remember the hug I got every time I saw her and it didn't seem like it had been years, but just a day or 2 since we had last talked. To the Schumacher family, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, that Mavis touched so many hearts and left a little bit of herself with each one. Her kind smile, her patient manner, her intelligence, wit and easy laugh are in my memories forever.

Memories

My deepest sympathy to all the family in your loss of such a fantastic lady. She was my teacher in high school,our class advisor, Marlene's Mom, a mentor, a role model & the classroom to go to when a family member had passed away & you needed to cry. The more I think of it--she should have been given a "Medal" for all the Home Ec. classes that she put up with for many years. She sampled the bad, burnt, over salted food & the small fires that the beginner cooks made in her class. What a woman--she came back everyday after those awful food tests & scarey days. She was a teacher that never stopped teaching even after she retired from school. It did not seem to matter whenever I would talk to her or pass by when she was in conversation with someone---she would always somehow work a peice of knowledge into the conversation. She touched many lives & left Memories with all them.

Sorry to learn of Mavis' passing. We are in Florida, but heard this through our family. I remember first meeting Mavis when I was the head Basketball Coach in Ellendale. I was there scouting Morristown and she invited me to the Home Ec room at halftime for some refreshments. She was so friendly and told me that's what they do when they see other coached attending their games. She was always so friendly to me as a Morristown teacher and of course 3 of her 4 children were my students and always such good students. It was always a pleasure to have you in my class.

Memories

I am saddened at the passing of a wonderful woman, friend and especially a devoted mother. I have so many memories of the Schumacher family. I remember when they first moved to Morristown and meeting the family. My mother working for Irv and the bowling team. Those were some of my mom's happiest time and my dad enjoyed the friendship they had. Some of the great stories from Lloydie, to mom ordering flowers for herself and signing Irv's name (Mavis loved that). I also remember Mavis as a caring teacher. She knew and lived what she taught, which made her a great teacher. She always took suggestions that her students gave her. I saw her a few months back at the grocery store and had a chance to chat briefly with her. Now I am so glad I did. I guess it teaches me and I hope others to take a few moments to just say "HI" because you never know when you will regret not taking the time. Bless you and all you memories.

Mavis was not only a teacher, she was a mentor. She was an encourager and a lovely woman. I felt blessed to have known her.
