Wendy Kay Schamanek came into this world on February 20, 1963. She passed away of a sudden brain aneurism on
Sunday, November 20, 2011. She had worked at Albertson's since 2002, and had made many wonderful friends there.
Wendy was a loving and devoted wife to her soulmate of 30 years, Don Martin Schamanek; amazing mom to her firstborn son, Christopher Ladi Schamanek; to her favorite daughter, Stephanie Rayanne Wilson; and to her precious baby boy, Paul Martin Schamanek. Words can't describe how special she was to us. She was the ideal mother-in-law to her favorite son-in-law, Bryan Wilson; and to her favorite daughter-in-law, Vanessa Schamanek.
She was so proud and happy when each one of her precious grandkids, Gage, Bryanna, Gracelyn, Seth, and Emmallee, came into her life. Wendy and Don always said when God made grandkids, he was showing off. She also was an aunt to many nieces and nephews.
She is missed by her mother, Idris White, who always taught her to see the positive things in life. She also left behind two brothers, Budd and Roy White; their wives, Jane and Tandra; and two wonderful sisters-in-law and true friends, Kelli
Baker and Jodi Gallagher.
When Jesus welcomed her with open arms, she was met by her father, Bill White; her mother-in-law, Elva K. Jenkins; and niece, Kylee Virginia Baker.
We will all miss her fun sense of humor and great advice. God is not a vengeful God; we will see her again. Let this be a true eye opener that tomorrow is not promised. Live your life how you want to be remembered, because, in the end, all we leave behind are truly wonderful memories.
Wendy was a true angel here on this earth, and now she is an angel in heaven, shining down through each and every one of us. Let's all let go of the past and only live for our eternal future with Jesus Christ.
A memorial fund has been set up at U.S. Bank in Wendy Schamanek's name to help us give this beautiful woman, who touched so many lives, the proper burial she deserves.
The memorial service will be held on December 3, 2011, 1:00 p.m., at the Nazarene Church, 1974 E. McAndrews Rd.,
