MarJo Schober of Litchfield Park, AZ and previously of Renton, WA passed away on July 31st. She was 83 years old. She spent her life with her soulmate Gale Schober. MarJo found joy in living and added zest to the lives of everyone around her. She loved to sing, and she loved her family. She was a “Grandma’s Grandma”, the kind you think of from a bygone era. They don't make them like that anymore. MarJo was preceded in death by her parents Calvin and Ruth Dishman, her husband Gale, their eldest son Norman, her sisters Donna and Violet, and her brother Jerry. She is survived by their son Cory and his wife Jennifer, niece Candy and her husband Dan, grandchildren Jeremy, Justin, Alexandra, Ryan and Aidan, great-grandchildren Jack and Archer, her sister Mary Lou James, her brother Calvin Jr. Dishman and his wife Carolyn, nieces Linda, Jackie, and Kim, and nephews Danny, Kipp, Jerry Joe, William, Scooter, and Tommy. MarJo is irreplaceable, but we are better for knowing her and we loved her dearly. Our hearts are hurting, but we smile because we loved her. The world was a better place because she was in it. I Never Saw Your Wings Author Unknown How is it that I never saw your wings when you were here with me? When you closed your eyes and soared to the Heavens I could hear the faint flutter of your wings as you left. Your body no longer on this side your spirit here eternally, I see your halo shine. I close my eyes and see the multicolored wings surrounding me in my saddest moments and my happiest times. Mother, my angel God has given you your assignment always my mother, forever my angel. You fly into my dreams and when I am asleep I feel your wings brush against my face wiping away the tears I shed since I can no longer hold you in my arms but in my heart. You earned those wings dear mother and you will always be my angel eternal. “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” -– Psalms 73:26
