MaryAnn was a great teacher! I always remember her helping out the drumline and cracking jokes with us. She never acted like a teacher and had a youthful spirt. We all learned so much from her and appreciated all her help with the ensemble. (Mitchell Graduate 2002).

I send my sympathy to the family.

Greeting. Keep the good works comming. Help me! I find sites on the topic: Modern bathroom cabinets. I found only this - nutone bathroom mirror Cabinets. I am looking at what the united states can do to further and deepen our relationship and provide assistance and support for the changes the angolan government is undertaking. Cabinetry repair ideas that could save you thousands of dollars. With love :-(, Lynch from Turkmenistan.

Paul and Alyson,
So sorry to hear of your loss. MaryAnn was an amazing person with a heart for God and people of all kind. I was fortunate to have her as an teacher as did my daughters and was also fortunate enough to be a colleague. She was truly a gift from God and I am blessed for knowing her. May God bring you comfort in this time and know that she was beloved by many. Peace and comfort to you both.

Paul and Alyson, I was saddened to hear about the loss of Mary Ann. She was such an inspiration to us all and especially to me. I remember my first time teaching percussion at the International Music Camp. She was such a wonderful mentor! I don't know if I could have made it through my first camp experience without her wonderful laughter and wisdom. In fact, I loved watching her play bass drum in the IMC Faculty Band rehearsals and concerts. I have such fond memories of her. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you both and your family.

Mrs. Scheuerle (hard to call her Mary Ann) was my 3rd grade teacher, as well as (trying to) teach me drums. She left a mark on me and so, so many others. She made a real difference in my life; I grieve her death, and pray for Paul and Allyson as they mourn their loss.

Dear Paul and Alyson,

I had the pleasure and joy of meeting our darling friend MaryAnn in the summer of 2001. For the next 5 (I think) summers I enjoyed my time with her and Paul at the International Music Camp. MaryAnn looked so much like my own beloved mother, it is very hard to think of her passing. She was such a beautiful person with a heart full of love for all. My favorite memories are of laughing with her and driving to Boissevain to go shopping. What a wonderful woman!

Dear Paul & Alyson,
I will always treasure the memories of time spent with MaryAnn and Paul at IMC. MaryAnn was a wonderful person who made everyone feel important and included. She had the best laugh, and we heard it often. She loved you both very much. May you find comfort and peace in knowing that. You are in my prayers.

Dear Paul and Alyson,

I loved working at IMC with Paul, and I especially loved getting to know MaryAnn. The picture above really shows her heart shining through her smile - I remember MaryAnn's beautiful smile and huge laugh.
I have fond memories of hunting in Canada - especially the VITs.

Wishing you peace and healing.

I had the pleasure of having MaryAnn as my 1st grade teacher and then again as my high school spanish teacher! She made an impact on my life and is behind part of my reasoning to becoming a teacher! What a lovely woman who cared so much for the people around her! Prayers to you Alyson and Paul, I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so aaddened to hear of MaryAnn's passing. I am blessed with so many happy memories of our times together at the International Music Camp, particularly the laughs we shared. I don't think I knew a warmer, more loving person than MaryAnn. My prayers are with you, Paul and Alyson, and I too will miss her dearly.

I was so sorry to hear of MaryAnn's death. She was a good friend at DWU and a fellow band member. Paul and Alyson (even though I have never met you) you are in my thoughts and prayers.

never was there a better teacher and was a role model for many of her students. She gave them the feel of self worth that many talk about today and left a mark on many parents, kids and other staff that she worked with.. I will cherish the many memories I have with her over the years and I know that God has special plans for her...Be sure to take good care of the cats..You will be in our prayers as you struggle through this terrible time but knowing that she is finally at peace must give you some solace..Alyson, I hope you know that from the day your mom was pregnant with you she was filling you with her love and that feeling never left your mom and she will be with you in spirit to..God bless you all..

Paul and Alyson,
I have spent the last few days just being thankful for the gift of MaryAnn in my life. She and I taught together at Holy Family Catholic School, and shared many wonderful memories which I will cherish always. I will always treasure the gift of laughter which we shared. I called her this past March when we visited Mitchell, and our conversation was always so easy and full of laughter until we cried with joy! May the angels welcome her, and sing more joyfully because of her presence. Be assured of my prayers for you, Paul and Alyson.

Paul, Alyson & Family - We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We only were able to get to know your mother for a short time, but she already had grown such a special place in so many of our hearts. We can only imagine all of the wonderful memories you have of Mrs. Scheuerle! May she rest in peace, and may you rest in the idea that she no longer is suffering, but instead is basking in the beautiful music of the angels.

MaryAnn was one of the coolest ladies I've ever had the pleasure to know. I am a better person for having learned from her. I'm so sorry she's gone. My heart aches for you, Alyson and Paul. Much love and many prayers to you both.
