Scott Twp.

Blessed be the Holy and Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, Mother of God.  Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.  Our Mother, have pity on us.  Our Lady of Lourdes, heal us, for the love and honor of the Holy Trinity.  Our Lady of Lourdes, heal us, for the conversion of sinners.  Health of the Sick, pray for us. O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.  – Novena Prayers

 

In the evening hours of April 1, 2024 our sweet Mom and Meema went home to her Lord and Blessed Mother.  

Born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1939 to Louis and Henrietta (Schlacter) Schoenfeld, Sandy began her life journey as the youngest of 5 children.  She moved to the Pittsburgh area when she was 15 years old where she built her life and family.  She was Mom to Victoria (Tom), Robert, her late infant son David, Pam (John) and Missy (Kevin).  She was Meema to her GrandchildrenAmanda (Dean), Matthew (Caroline), Ashley, Brittany (Brandon), Alexis, Bobby Jr, Brad, Chad, Christina and Great Grandchildren Taylor, Aden, Gabriella, Alayna, Luca, Blake, Madison, Noah, Carter and Ellie

Sandy loved the aspect of the medical field.  She aspired to be a Nurse but instead found herself volunteering in a Hospital andworking in a Dr office of which she told many stories over the years of how much she loved her patients and how they had an impact on her life.  She always said, “Isn’t it wonderful how I had an interest in the Medical field and look at our family now, how many of you are in some aspect of that field.”

She later married her Husband the late Ken Chase in 1973 and became a Homemaker who was busy raising children and running her Husband’s Plumbing business.  Again, she foundfriends in the folks that would call to have some work done.  Sandy was just that kind of person.  

Anywhere that she would go, she would strike up a conversation, whether it be the grocery store checkout line, the bank or randomly just walking down the street. Her daughters that were with her would just shake their head, smile and find a comfy spot to sit and wait till she was done chatting.   She had the largest most beautiful heart.  After 46 years of living in the same home, she moved to a new neighborhood where within a few short months made several new friendships, not only with the neighbors but she even knew every pets name!  She welcomed anyone that drove up the street with a wave or a “Hi Honey”. At times we would ask, “Who is that Mom?” and she would shrug her shoulders and say, “I don’t know” with a smile on her face.  Many times she would take her loving dog Emmy for a “quick walk” up her road, only to return an hour later because she found herself chatting with everyone and always made sure to stop and chat with our Fedex lady.

Our Mom was so interested in anything to do with home renovation.  She spent many years taking it room by room and at times we would come home from school and see a wall missing!  She had a hand in some kind of painting or staining projects in her family and friends homes.  She was very meticulous especially with her cabinet or wood refinishing.  Oh boy, if you didn’t follow our moms’ proper steps of staining and steel wooling or cutting in, she would let you know about it or say, let me do it!  

Sandy’s favoritthing to do was spending time with her family. She saw a saying one time that said, “our family is full of love, laughter and chaos” and she commented, “That’s us and that’s that way I like it!  She always said her greatest achievement was her Family.  She looked forward to trips, 4 hour longshopping and lunch trips, taking long rides, seeing the Grandchildren in their school activities and especially our Family holiday traditions.  Christmas was the time of year that warmed her heart the most.  She loved to decorate her home inside and out for Christmas because she loved the sparkle of the holiday. She would tell us stories of how the school bus driver would bring her children to our neighborhood just to see the Christmas lights.  You could find her baking cookies and singing to Christmas music and most recently passing out those cookies to her beloved neighbors, but she also looked forward to taking that trip to the Casino after Christmas breakfast.  I think she tried to turn some of us into Gamblers.  

Our Mom/Meema had very strong Faith.  She would pray for anyone that was sick or just going thru a difficult time.  Her proudest Faith moment was when she was selected to receive holy water from Lourdes.  She prayed to the blessed Mother and would use this holy water or pass out this holy water to help heal anyone that was ailing.  Her favorite story to tell was the miracle with her Grandson, Matthew’s hand.  He injured his hand so she took her holy water, rubbed it all over his hand and said her healing prayer 3 times.  He awoke the next day with NO pain and to this day has no pain.  She said, “I think this is what I was chosen to do” So she continued to pass along the holy water and prayers thru the rest of her days.

Our beautiful mother made her peaceful transition home to her awaiting mother, family and friends in the comfort of her own home surrounded by her Girls which included her little dogEmmy.  She lived a life overflowing of love and laughter and will be forever missed by her loving family.  Mom/Meema, we want you to know that you had and will always have such a large impact on all of our daily lives.  We love you immeasurably and will miss you immensely, until we meet again.
