Paula Jane Schoeller

SCHOELLER , Paula Jane November 2, 1943 – February 14, 2018 Our heartfelt tribute to our late mother cannot express the words, love and gratitude we have for her. To the world you were one person, but to us, you were the world. Paula Jane Schoeller, of Gilbert, passed away peacefully on February 14, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was a loving and devoted, wife, mother, sister and friend. She was born on November 2, 1943, in New Jersey, the daughter of Doris and Paul Sherman. After graduating from High School in 1961 and meeting her Sweetheart Robert Garrett Schoeller (Gary), they were married on December 9, 1961, in Pompton Plains, New Jersey. They were married for almost 50 years, until our father’s passing in 2011 . They moved to Arizona in 1971. In her younger years, while her children were still young, she sold Avon and taught gymnastics. We felt fortunate to have a stay at home mother, and to this day are truly grateful. She did not go to work full-time until most of us were in our teens. She provided us a loving, safe and happy home, while without complaint driving us to Brownies, girl scouts, sports, the swimming pool at Kino Jr. High, movies, summer classes etc. Once she returned to the work force she worked for a few medical practices where she excelled and made some life time friends . Of all her accomplishments, her greatest achievements have been in the lives of her family and friends. She taught us love, honesty, patience, strength and endurance. She taught us the importance of family, character, integrity, morals, faithfulness and hard work. We have so many happy memories that we will carry with us forever, from summer vacations in California, and driving back east to visit family, to doing cartwheels in the yard. She made our holidays amazing, and we will happily continue to carry on her traditions. She is survived by her four children, Scott, Debbie, Stacy and Robbie, son-in-law Tom, daughter-in-law Hillari, grandchildren, Cory, Krystyn, Michelle, Ashley, Ryan, Garret, Cole, Riley, Hunter, Austin, Nikki, Konnor, Dylan and Dallas, and great grandchildren Tristan, Adrian , Alex, Johnnie, and Macy, and her beloved dog Max. She is predeceased by her loving husband Gary, parents Doris and Paul Sherman, and her sister Carol. She leaves all her children and grandchildren with the knowledge that they were truly loved and cherished, and with the characteristics to continue to live a life that she would be proud of. We pray that until we are with her again, that she is in the comfort of the love ones that have predeceased her, and that she is happy and at peace. We will truly miss her. Her loving, and forever grateful children. Scott, Debbie, Stacy and Robbie Sign the Guestbook at: obituaries.eastvalleytribune.com
