Patricia Jean Schuler, "Tricia"

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness…" 2 Timothy 4:7-8a

On Friday, June 9, 2017, Patricia Jean Schuler, with family members at her side, went home to be with Jesus. She passed peacefully from this earth from complications due to cancer at the Adler Center for Caring in Aldie, Virginia. She was the beloved sister of Ann Mitchell, Richard Schuler, Jr., Nancy Cooper, Michael Schuler, Terrence Schuler, Janet Miller, and Jeffrey Schuler. She was preceded in death by her parents, Anna "Scotty" Schuler and Richard P. Schuler, long- time residents of Pocono Summit, Pennsylvania. She will be truly missed by her goddaughter, Nicole Frontanes, who is one of seventeen nieces and nephews, and her cherished "stepmom," Jean Callahan.

Tricia graduated from Pocono Mountain High School in 1979. She attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and East Stroudsburg University before joining the United States Air Force. She ended her four year career with a rank of Sargent. She had successful careers with SAIC and Buffini and Company, before going to work for United Through Reading as a National Program Manager of Volunteers, a non-profit organization of which she was extremely proud. She spent many happy years on the west coast in the San Diego area and loved being a "California Girl." She rejoined family members on the east coast in Manassas, Virginia, about five years ago when she began her fight with multiple myeloma.

Tricia loved being active outdoors where she could enjoy nature. She also enjoyed reading, and had recently begun drawing again. One of her true passions, however, was taking photographs! She was the unofficial historian of the extended Schuler family and had recorded so many family gatherings and events. Taking pictures of places, family, and friends made her happy and was a way to continue to express her artistic talents. Another passion, which also brought joy to others, was her singing. She had a wonderful voice and was always in charge of leading the Schuler Family Christmas Eve sing-a-longs.

A memorial service will be held at Quantico National Cemetery, Quantico, Virginia, in the future. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to any of the following: United Through Reading, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, or the Adler Center for Caring of Aldie, Virginia.
