I was saddened and shocked to learn of Schemen's passing. She and I were classmates at Texas A&M, I graduated a semester before her and joined Brown & Root. After she graduated, she called me to request a recommendation, which I provided, and we stayed in touch over the years. I recall how excited she was during her time here in Bahrain where my family/I have been living for the past 8 years. After hearing she passed away, thru the numerous exchanges back/forth, I made an acquaintance with a good friend of hers here and got to know more about her via Mohammed as well as experienced firsthand he/his family's affection for her, not to mention their profound sense of loss/grief over Schemen's passing. Mohamed and I'd paths have crossed many times over the years and I'm amazed we've never met. Because of Schemen, I feel as though I have made a life long friend and am thankful. Schemen was a true gem and will be greatly missed. RIP Schemen.

Dear Maxine, Rob, Mike and family
I want to send you my deepest condolences. I know the sadness you feel today will eventually become mixed with all the special memeories you have had over the years. Schemen fought so hard for so many years and she is now at peace. I will remember her as a strong caring person who had so much love to give and accomplished so much in her limited years. I will cherish the memories I have of getting to know and love her. I will truly miss her and am so sorry I couldn't be there to take part in the celebration of her life. Love to you all, John

Well has I sit hear wondering how to put into words what I want to say the tears are flowing.Schemen has held a special place in my heart since the first time I met her.She was certainly a picture of beauty on the inside and out.Schemen and I always kept in contact writing each other notes.Just keeping in contact this way I always felt I had a bond with her.When Schemen first got sick with cancer it was surely devastating news thinking how can this be happening to such a young person with so much more in life to look forward to but I guess god had other plans for her plans that we all at sometimes would question why? I guess it's like the saying goes life is not all smooth sailing,and no it wasn't for Schmen I often wondered how she dealth with all the sickness life had thrown at her.Schemen has had the most loving parents and family anyone could ever ask for I guess with their continuing love and support it got her through some rough spots in life but I guess it came a time where God needed her more.I was talking to Tob the other night on the phone and I was upset thinking about Schemen and his words to me were "Kathy you know Uncle Bob is probably calling for Schemen because he knows how much she has suffered and he don't want her to suffer anymore"so every time I think of her and start to feel sad I think of what Tob said to me and I try to believe that it's true.I guess our family has another beautiful angel watching over us all.Rest in peace my sweet cousin love you forever and always.Sending our deepest sympathy Aunt Mac,Mike,Rob and Family.

How lucky are to have known such a angel on earth who is now the biggest angel in heaven ! As I think about Schemens visits to Newfoundland in her younger years , she was so beautiful , very loving , kind , caring and such a wonderful smile for everyone .. When Aunt Mac would send home pictures of the family , I would admire Schemens pictures ,absolutely beautiful I can still close my eyes and picture those pictures of her she was a model beauty inside and out ... When Schemen first had gotten sick I can remember waiting by the phone to get the call that she was okay and surgery went well ... that day I had told Uncle Bob if I had a little girl I would call her after Schemen and I did Jo-Ella Melanie Schemen was born January 2002 , I was so proud to name her after Schemen .. and when Jo-Ella was old enough to say her name the funny thing was she would say her name was Jo-Ella Melanie Schemen Aunt Mac Power .. On Schemens visits to newfoundland while she dealing with her sickness she still shown so much love for everyone around her and always thinking of the other person before herself. Jo-Ella was so excited just to sit by her,so much love was shown in such a short time spend together but the memory of that time will be held close to our hearts. I can bit Schemen is the biggest brightest angel in heaven . May you all be at peace as Schemen has found her new home and as you hold your memories tight always remember you were the most important people in her life ! So much love to you all xoxoxo
