Pat Schuman

Pat Schuman, age 90, of Osgood passed away August 6, 2019 at Manderley Health Care Center. Pat was born May 19, 1929 in Fleming, KY the daughter of the late Charles and Nellie Pollit Cooper. She married Frank “Peck” Schuman on June 4, 1948. They made their home in Ripley, Ohio and in December 1959 moved to Osgood due to Peck’s job with US Shoe. There they made their home.

Her most important job was the raising of her two children, Ted and Ella Mae. In her later years, she enjoyed painting watercolor pictures and everything else from shirts to rocks. As her husband said, if it isn’t moving, she will paint it! Something else that she was known for making were her button necklaces that she gave to many friends. Eating out with her friends and working activities at St. John’s Catholic Church is how she spent a lot of her time. Last but certainly not least were her grandchildren and family. She loved them all so very much along with being so proud of them.

Survivors include her son Teddy (Teresa) Schuman of Shelbyville and daughter Ella Mae (Dan) Lemen of Yorktown; five grandchildren: Shari Hershey, Sandi (Ed) Brzak, Jeff (April) Lemen, Neil (Erin) Schuman and Scott (Emily) Schuman; eight great grandchildren along with one great, great grandchild also survive.
