It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Madeleine Schuh, a cherished spouse, mother, grandmother and friend whose life reflected endless service, love, and kindness. Our Angel continues on her journey. Forever missed. Never forgotten.
Her husband of almost 54yrs, Alfred; daughters Denise (Mike) Cochran, and Cheryl Schuh; granddaughters Elise Cochran and Monique Cochran; and a multitude of wonderful friends lovingly and respectfully honour her memory.
Born in Fernie, BC, a coal-miners daughter to Andre and Louise Arnaud in 1935, her life was her family, friends, and music. She played alto saxophone in the Fernie high school, eventually obtaining Toronto Conservatory certification and taught piano, played and sang in the Chilliwack choir, and in her most recent years, accompanied her husband as they played music for many community services and events. She will always be remembered as an active community builder; and one who always provided an open door and generous hospitality for all. She passed at 604pm, 4 Aug 2011 peacefully at home with family.
There will be no funeral service as per her wishes.
