ALMA SCHUMAIER

Alma was born September 12, 1924 in Coleharbor, North Dakota. Shortly after her birth the family moved to Benedict North Dakota where the family set up home and the 11 children were raised. Alma was the 6th child of 11 children but the 1st born girl. With the first born girl came many responsibilities and chores.

On October 19, 1947 Alma married John Schumaier. They had 4 children and lived in Garrison, North Dakota. In 1960 they moved to Salem Oregon and she worked at a canary. In 1963 they moved to Auburn. Alma worked as a cook at Cascade Jr. High until 1976 when they moved to Whitefish Montana where they bought and operated a Coast-to-Coast store. They retired in 1982 and moved back to Auburn to be closer to family and friends. Alma was active in her church and she and John were active with North Dakota dance groups, dancing almost every weekend until John’s passing in 1992.

Through all the travels and adventures, many friendships were made and treasured.

In 2017 Alma moved into Merrell Gardens where she developed more dear friendships.

Alma is survived by her sons Timothy (Kathy) Jeff (Dede); grandchildren Anthony (Melissa), Amanda, Scott (Jennifer); 7 great-grandchildren Adelayde, Savannah, Bridgette, Alexis, Johnathan, Kendal and Kayla; sisters, Ester Vitko, Hulda Melhoff; and brother Ervin Weishaar.

She was preceded in death by her husband John Schumaier; daughters Brenda (still born) and Kathleen; sister Irene Krebsbach; and brothers Adolph, Art, Willie, Albert, John and Bert.

Memorials may be made in Alma’s name to First United Methodist Church in Auburn.
