The Celebration of Life was held Thursday, April 26, 2018 at Zoar Congregational Church in Mott. Pastor Corey Warner officiated with burial following at Sunnyslope Cemetery in Mott.
Emma Schauer was born on March 7, 1927 in Havelock, ND, the 2nd child among the 13 children born to Jacob Jr. and Louisa (Dill-Zimmerman) Schauer. Emma attended Alden Country School through 8th grade. After that time, she helped the family run the farm. Her dream was always to complete her high school education which she did by achieving her GED in the late 1970’s.
On October 29, 1945 she was united in marriage to Oscar Schaible at the Lutheran Church in Regent, ND. They moved to the farm northwest of Mott where they started farming and milking cows. They lived there for 29 years and raised 5 children. On June 1, 1977, Oscar was suddenly called home to his eternal Savior and home.
Emma had diversified interests which included painting, ceramics, gardening, genealogy, and canning. She could take a destroyed piece of furniture and restore it to beautiful new life. Her dedication to family was unquestioned because she was faithful to attend the activities and special events of grandchildren, nieces and nephews, which she videotaped with loving attention. She traveled extensively in the United States and abroad both for pleasure as well as for mission service projects. Her generosity and service to those who needed help gave her life purpose. Everything she did was with excellence.
