Johanna Katharina Schumer, age 86, of Perryville, MO, passed away Saturday, January 30, 2021 at Independence Care Center in Perryville.

She was born September 30th, 1934 in Bodenheim, Germany; the daughter of Franz Josef Krempel and Catharina (Nickel) Krempel. She and Melbourne Shumer were united in marriage on March 10, 1965 in Darmstadt, Germany. Melbourne preceded her in death on June 19 2003.

Johanna retired from Perry County Memorial Hospital as an EMT / CNA and was a member of the Heartland Baptist Church in Perryville. Johanna grew up in war torn Germany. As non sympathizers of the Nazi party she and her mother suffered many hardships. She would tell her friends of these things almost as if to remind us how blessed we are in this country. Then with a smile she would recall the American soldiers that came into her home town at end of war and shared their military rations. The kindness and generosity of those American soldiers was never forgotten. Johanna paid back so many with her kindness and generosity. She cherished her American citizenship and was thankful she could live and worship in this country.

Survivors include one son Michael Pirow of Heidenheim, Germany; one granddaughter Caroline Pirow; friends and neighbors Eugene and Norma Pratt of Perryville and her pet Princess Leah .

She was preceded in death by her parents Franz Krempel and Katharina Muller, her step father Paul Muller, her husband Melbourne, and two brothers Peter Krempel and Franz Krempel.

A Celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Liley Funeral Homes in Marble Hill was in charge of the arrangements.
