Mary Elizabeth Schumacher Fritsch

In the sweet by and by, We shall meet on that beautiful shore.


"She lived the beatitudes and became a true blessing for all of us who were privileged to know and to be close to her."

from her funeral mass, homily by Rev. Al Fritsch

she'd transform an ordinary potted flower

to a blue ribbon winner & humbly show its beauty


mmmm...View Detailsshe made and shared  the best Christmas plum pudding and mincemeat pies...most especially her hickory nut cake...taking all November to pick and hull the nuts

"Mimi" generously donated her, time, talents, effort, and food for the benefit of others and to sustain St. Patrick Church...  she is buried at St. Patrick Cemetery.





There's a land that is fairer than day,
And by faith we can see it afar;
For the Father waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there.

In the sweet in the sweet
By and by by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In the sweet in the sweet
By and by by and by
We shall meet on that beautiful shore.

We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blest,
And our spirits shall sorrow no more
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.

To our bountiful father above
We will offer our tribute of praise;
For the glorious gift of His love
And the blessings that hallow our days.
