Beverly was a very strong, loving and caring person.

Although life comes to an end here on earth, Beverly Church Reiss Schuler, our mom, will continue to live in our hearts.  William C. Reiss and Karla Reiss-Sitko invite you to celebrate our mother’s life, the way she would like it to be.  She wanted to be cremated and her request was to have a memorial at the building she moved into last May, where she made a lot of amazing friends.  These friends are not all able to get around well, so we are bringing it to them. Our mom was always concerned about other people and how to take care of them, this was very clear in the request she had made prior to passing away.  Please come prepared to share your memories of her.  Our mom lived an amazing life, struggling at times, but she never let that get to her! She is the strongest person you will ever know!

Looking forward to celebrating her life with you!


Heaven got the most previous angel the early morning of March 14, 2014, our mom and best friend. Our lives will never be the same! My heart is broken and a piece of me died with my mom. Thank you to everyone who has been very supportive during the last three weeks! It felt like time stood still. We treasure every moment spent with our mom the last three weeks! Nothing was more important than her and we were very lucky to be able to spend all of our time with her up until her very last breath. We love you mom for eternity and know you will be with us forever. You are the strongest person ever!  http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=i1GmxMTwUgs

She was in the hospital when we found out that the cancer metastasized to her bones.  Bone cancer does not have a cure.  My mom is the strongest person in the world.  I decided to write about her and make her my cover story, "WOMAN OF STEEL BEVERLY SCHULER"  I received my proof back while she was still in the hospital and shared her story with her and the story about the Ruby Red Slippers, she really enjoyed them!  And was over excited about being famous, on the cover of a magazine!  She fought so hard not only this time around, but her entire life with serious illinesses!  She lived her life "MIND OVER MATTER"  Which was the inspiration of the magazine.  She played a HUGE role in the magazine, as she has always been my inspiration! 

Mom, you are my shining star, I love you and miss you tremendously! You will live on in our hearts as you have touched so many!
