Sadly, our loving Mother, Mary “Nonnie” Schram, passed from this life early on the morning of Wednesday, January 8, 2014. Plagued recently with heart problems, she endured an extended hospital stay and several surgeries. Just when we had our hopes raised that she was improving and that her wishes to go home might be a possibility, her frail little body simply gave out – and we, the family, lost the best friend and companion we ever had –


She was an amazing woman. She never knew a stranger and was kind to everyone. Known most of her life as "Nonnie" by her friends, she was always a devoted friend and companion; however, she always kept her family as her first priority. She was a loving Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, and Great-great-grandmother. Mama would do anything for anybody – or any thing – in need.  She gave completely of herself without ever asking for anything in return.


Now, faced with the absence of medical insurance, astronomical hospital and doctor bills, and unexpectedly high funeral expenses, we – her family – are asking if you’d be kind enough to return the favor. To give a bit of yourself in an effort to help Henry, Mama’s husband of 45 years, meet these financial obligations. Now 70, Henry continues to work fulltime in the logging industry, putting every available dollar toward meeting these obligations; however, personal resources can only be stretched so thin, and he, too proud to ask for help, struggles silently and without complaint –


It’s said that Life isn’t easy; it is, instead, what one makes of it. Death, it seems, is likewise difficult and often all-absorbing, for above and beyond the sadness and despair that accompanies the loss of our beloved mother , there are the financial obligations. With that, we, Mary’s family, would like to ask if you’d be willing to donate something – anything – to help offset Henry’s still-mounting medical and funeral debts. We thank you, and know Mama would be pleased –
