Melba Schumacher Obituary

Mom was born November 7, 1923 to Clarence and Anna Belle (Magers) Randolph in Carlton, Washington. She passed away November 8, 2022 at the age of 99. She was a long-time resident of the Wenatchee Valley.


Mom grew up and attended grade school in Carlton and graduated from Twisp High School. After graduation, she moved from Carlton to Wenatchee with her parents. Awhile later, she married Charles Noto in Moses Lake, WA. Together, they were blessed with three children, Melba Jean, Richard Charles, and Kathy LeAnn. After the death of her first husband, she married Joseph Schumacher December 26, 1955 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Wenatchee. Joe was an orchardist and mom worked side by side him through every harvest.


Mom was a 4-H leader for many years and was mentor and second mom to many young people. She was a lifetime member of Appleatchee and an active member of Catholic Daughters of America. After retiring, she enjoyed family gatherings at Money Creek on Highway 2 and in Twisp. Mom had a beautiful rose garden. She spent many hours tending her roses and many bouquets graced her dining room table.

Melba was preceded in death by her first husband, Charles Noto; her second husband, Joseph Schumacher; her sister, Eilene Kearney and her daughter, Kathy Gates.


Survivors include her daughter Melba Jean Thompson, Wenatchee, WA; her son Richard (Karen) Noto, Centralia, WA; eight grandchildren; eight great grandchildren and three great, great, grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.


Rosary will be recited at 10:30am followed immediately by a Funeral Mass on Thursday, November 17, at 11:00am at Holy Apostles Catholic Church. Interment will follow at Wenatchee City Cemetery. There will be a luncheon and celebration of her life immediately following at the fellowship hall at Holy Apostles. It was Melba’s wish that, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to East Wenatchee KC Help Building Fund, PO Box 3850, Wenatchee, WA, 98801.


Arrangements are under the direction of Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
