She was a 1951 graduate of the former Tuscarawas-Warwick High School and on April 26, 1953, in Sharon Moravian Church, where she has been a lifelong member, she married Glen J. Schumacher. As a couple, they raised one son and have shared in nearly 71 years of marriage. Together they enjoyed many adventures and in their later years, wintered in Palmetto Florida. 

Her works of service at Sharon Moravian Church were many but not limited to the Sunday School Secretary, Vacation Bible School Director, and a member of the Moravian Women’s Fellowship.
