A picture of the Pioneers with the Schuman's, Grackin's, Schaeffer's.. The year was 2000 celebrating Her,man Grackin's 75 th birthday.
Growing up with Jonathan and Henry I spent many a day and some nights at the Schuman house. Jean was always such a welcoming and positive force in the household, I always felt very comfortable there.
My parents Herman and Lillian were members of the “Pioneers” with the Schumans founding members of the Ronkonkoma Jewish Center. Even after their generation aged out of the temple, they would still socialize. Weekends at the Brookside in the Catskills continued into the 1990’s. Jean and my mother were friends for decades starting in the 1950’s. On another post I will try to upload a photograph or two.
My heart goes out to the family.
You will be very much missed Aunt Jean more than words can express.
I will miss our weekend talks. The sound of your voice and laughter.
You always gave sound advise along with Uncle Frank.
Say hi, to the family for me.
I know you are all happy being back together. :)
Much love, your niece, Cynthia
I can think of the last times I saw her; be it at one of June’s art shows or an occasion at the house. I can remember seeing her whenever I would come over to visit Henry after school when we were kids. But I can NEVER recall ever seeing her without a smile and a readiness to laugh. Rest in peace Mrs. Schuman.
So sorry for the passing of our dearest Jean she will be missed, and such a kind and beautiful lady with a big heart!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
In memory of Jean L. Schuman, Alek Schuman lit a candle
Rest In Peace mom, May your light shine forever. Big Kiss!
Love, your daughter-in-law and loving son,
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
