Paintings & Picture Frames for Auction
My name is Paul Schumacher, originally from Detroit, Michigan and a permanent resident of Marquette.
After meeting online at the Christian Café website in 2009, Susan Vasquez Reyes and I married in Seattle, Wa., on May 1, 2013. I then brought Susan home to Marquette where we made our home.
In February of 2016, my wife, Susan V. Reyes Schumacher, was diagnosed with Stage 4, non-small cell, non-smoker, lung cancer. An artist, Susan had emigrated from the Philippines. She hand-picked all the tree bark, rocks, shells, driftwood and pebbles herself from the beaches and woods where she walked. She then turned them into beautiful art. In our home on West Crescent St. in Marquette, Susan created some of her most remarkable frames and paintings. She sold and mailed them all over the world! Susan kept painting right up until the day she had to go to the hospital. Four days later, on June 8, 2017, the world truly lost an amazing daughter, sister, wife and artist. Susan left behind more than 90 painting and picture frames.
To honor her legacy, I am having a Memorial Fundraising Art Sale. Certainly, Susan would be thrilled to see me organize a sale of her artworks, and to donate 100% of the profits to benefit Cancer Care of Marquette County, Care Clinic of Marquette, and The Superior Health Foundation. I selected Cancer Care of Marquette County because they helped Susan and I financially when she was ill. Care Clinic of Marquette was our favorite charity to donate to. The Superior Health Foundation was selected because of their work in helping Cancer victims as well. I have priced Susan’s art based on the prices she sold them.
My sincere hope is even more money will be contributed in addition to each sale to far exceed that goal! The more funds we raise, the more people will be helped in Susan’s name!
All of the works of art sold will include:
• A letter of Authentication • Official Obituary
• A packed and protected artwork
• Pictures of Susan with Paul Schumacher
• A brief story of Susan’s Life
• 100% assurance your contribution will benefit those in need in Marquette County
Please Note: Shipping is not covered in the sales price. However, for convenience it can be added to the final sale price.
