Obituary For Marjorie Jane (Cordes) Schumm

Marjorie passed quietly, and into the waiting arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Sunday, May 9, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harold Cordes and Viola (Fuchshuber) Cordes; and brother, David Cordes. She is survived by her beloved husband, Norman Schumm, and her five children, Daniel (Susan) Schumm, Stephan (Deborah) Schumm, Karen Schumm, Kathryn (Paul) Stanis, and Laura (Dave) Hoff, seven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Margie was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She was an active member of Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church. During her school age years, she attended Saint Paul’s Lutheran School and Concordia Lutheran High School, where she graduated as the valedictorian in 1951. Norm and Margie were married in Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church, Fort Wayne, Indiana on July 30, 1955. Norm was a pilot in the United States Navy, and they immediately moved to Norfolk, Virginia. They were subsequently stationed in Kingsville, Texas and then Chicago, Illinois. By this time, they had three young children. Their moving did not stop until Norm was offered a position to be a pilot for a corporation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They moved to the “Steel City” during the 1960’s World Series. She quickly became a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball fan. She would listen to the games on her transistor radio or watch them on the 13” black n’ white TV. The move brought many more blessings into their lives, including two more children. She was a stay-at-home mom and loved to read. She enjoyed doing mental gymnastics by completing the newspaper’s daily crossword puzzle in ball point pen and answering most of the clues correctly on Jeopardy each night. She was an active member of Concordia Lutheran Church in Brentwood, Pennsylvania where she sang in the choir, helped with Vacation Bible School, and was a member of the Service Circle. Margie was a selfless individual. She always put the needs of her husband and children before herself. She was a godly mother who would pray daily and have regular evening devotions with her family. She trusted in God for every need. She was generous with her love and support of her family. She was obedient to God and had a forgiving heart. She served the Lord with gladness. Most of all she loved unconditionally. Visitation will be held 9-11 a.m. on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at Concordia Lutheran Church with a Celebration of Life at 11:00 AM. Private interment will be at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery. Memorials may be given to Concordia Lutheran Church, 3109 Brownsville Road, Brentwood, Pennsylvania 15227.

Sending our love, thoughts and prayers to your entire family during this difficult time. When my family moved to Ashland Ave we were welcomed with big warm smiles from both Norm and Marge. Marge always had something sweet to say about my garden when she would see me working in it. We are very sad to hear about her passing. Rest In Peace.

My deepest sympathies to the Schumm family and praying for comfort and peace for everyone. Margie was always a friendly face as I grew up in Concordia and I enjoyed when we sat in front of her and got to hear her beautiful voice singing those beloved hymns. She's now part of God's heavenly choir and will missed here on earth.

Our deepest Sympathies, Norm and family on the death of Marge! I personally have so many memories with Marge. We went to grade school and high school together and worked on the campus after graduation. Marge and I were the "tall and the short of it", especially when we wore high heels. We were in each other's weddings, and we even visited Marge and Norm on our honeymoon! May you find comfort knowing that your wife, Mother and Grandmother is. no longer in a state of confusion, but joyful in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior. God bless you all, from John and Ruth Remetta and family.

I met Margie and Norm when I was engaged to my husband Dennis. Margie always amazed me with her patience and love for her family. She was devoted to them, just as she was devoted to her Lord and to her church family. She was loved by many and will be missed by all of us. Prayers for Norm and the extended family and hope in the promised resurrection. To God be the glory. Marsha and Rev, Dennis FitzPatrick

I would like to express my deepest sympathies to Mr. Schumm and family. I grew up on Ashland avenue with the Schumm family. Mrs. Schumm was my mom at the bottom of the hill. She's was always watching out for my siblings and I. We were like family. I had a great childhood on Ashland avenue partly due to the Schumm family. I love you Mrs. Schumm🤟🏻. May her memory be eternal. Onna Miniona (Anna Kazalas Sullivan)
