BUXTON — Mary Sutton Schumann passed away peacefully in her Buxton home on Thursday, April 27, 2023 after complications with chronic illness. She was 65.
Mary was born April 21, 1958 in Williamsburg, Virginia, where she was raised with her siblings and went on to attend William and Mary University in pursuit of an English degree. Mary forged her career in various avenues of the customer service and hospitality industries and was devoted to each guest. A long-time resident of Hatteras Island, Mary dedicated herself to raising her two daughters, Devon and Hannah. A former Cape Hatteras School PTA President, Girl Scout Troop Leader and Odyssey of the Mind Coach, Mary was passionate about empowering the minds of young people and encouraging them to harness their creativity. In addition to enjoying time with family and friends, she found pleasure in tending to her garden, reading, spending time outside, and doting on her late pup, Otis. Those who knew Mary personally would say she was hard-working and kind, generous, strong-willed, and loving. She had a flair for fun and a laugh that could be heard throughout the largest crowd.
Mary is survived by her husband, Peter Schumann of Frisco; her two daughters, Devon and Hanna; her siblings, Michael, Richard, Thomas, and Margaret; and numerous other extended family members and friends.
A celebration of life service will be planned for later in the summer. Please share condolences with the family at www.gallopfuneralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.
