In Memorial

Deb Schumacher

Passed away July 10th, 2015


I first meet Deb at a CUUPS Yule celebration in 2013 at West Hills UU. We hit it off right from the start. After a long conversation on druidry, I invited her to our first ritual, Imbolc. After atteneding a few of our rites, I asked Deb if she would be interested in joining the Protogrove which she promptly did. Deb was one of the founding members of the Protogrove in which she invested many hours of her day to the grove and it's members. Deb was so full of life, sparking and instilling great creativity and joy with everyone she met. 


She was diagnosed with breast cancer for the third time.


She has been so strong in this fight but in the end she was surrounded by family,  and slipped away with words of love and lots of hugs and kisses. Our hearts are broken and deeply saddened to have this beautiful woman leaving this world. She leaves us all with a profound joy and love that will stay with us forever. She lived her life with so much love and strength up until her very last breath. We miss you Deb.
