Frank Schumacher (1888-1945) was a brother to my grandmother Anna (Schumacher) Gerken. Frank Schumacher married Myrtle Binhoff (1890-1946), and they lived at Dubuque, Iowa, where Frank was secretary-treasurer and general superintendent at Morrison Brothers.    T.L.

Frank and Myrtle (Binhoff) Schumacher

Frank M. Schumacher was born August 15, 1886, in East Dubuque, Illinois, the firstborn child of George and Mathilda (Uthe) Schumacher. His brothers and sisters were Frank, John "Jack," Joseph "Joe," Louise, and Anna. Their mother Mathilda died in 1897, and later that same year George Schumacher married Catherine Fuerstenberg. Catherine brought a daughter Josephine into the marriage, and George and Catherine had six additional children of their own: George, Margaret, Louis, Henrietta, Albert, and Mary. Circa 1903 the Schumacher family moved from East Dubuque across the Mississippi River to Dubuque, Iowa.

Frank Schumacher married Myrtle Elizabeth Binhoff on April 2, 1907, in Sabula, Iowa. Myrtle Binhoff was born on July 3, 1890, at Muscatine, Iowa, daughter of Barney and Mary Edith "Mayme" (Brown) Binhoff. For the Barney Binhoff family, the surname had changed to Binhoff from Binhuff. Myrtle was the eldest of four children; her siblings were Hazel, Warren, and Norman Binhoff.

In 1895, the Binhoff family, who were of the Catholic faith, were living in Muscatine, Iowa, where Barney Binhoff was serving as a police officer. By 1905, the Binhoffs had moved to Dubuque, Iowa, where Barney was employed as a foreman at a button factory. Shortly thereafter the Binhoffs moved to Sabula, Iowa, in Jackson County, where Barney was the superintendent at the Iroquois Button Factory, which was the largest company in Sabula at the time. Mayme Binhoff served as an officer in the St. Agnes Guild of Saint Peter's Catholic Church in Sabula. Mary Binhoff died in 1928 in Moline, Illinois (perhaps while on a visit to her daughter Hazel, who lived in Moline). Barney would later live in Prairie Springs-Zwingle Township, Jackson County, Iowa; Dubuque, Iowa; and Moline, Illinois.

Frank and Myrtle Schumacher initially lived in Sabula, Iowa, and it was there that there first two children were born, Edith and Ethel, were born, in 1907 and 1909. Frank was a laborer in a factory there at the time of the 1910 U.S. Census, in April of that year. That same year, the Schumacher family moved to Dubuque, Iowa, where there third child, George, was born in November 1910. In Dubuque, the family were members of Nativity Church.

By October 1917, Anna Schumacher, Frank's sister, was residing with Frank and Myrtle. Surviving letters indicate that Anna lived with Frank and Myrtle at both of their Jackson street addresses, and letters from December 1918 and April 1919 that were addressed to Anna Schumacher, c/o Frank Schumacher, have an address of 3165 Elm. (There was a period from the latter part of 1918 into 1919 when Anna was away living in Chicago and working.) These surviving letters to Anna were from her beau Ewald Gerken, who was serving in France during World War I. Upon Ewald's return home from the service, he too boarded with the Schumachers as he and Anna awaited their wedding day of September 10, 1919, and Frank and Myrtle's Elm street home served as the setting for their wedding breakfast. For some time Ewald worked at Morrison Brothers, where Frank was foreman; Joe Schumacher and Jack Schumacher, two brothers of Frank and Anna, would also work at Morrison Brothers.
Evidently, Frank was counted twice in the 1910 census, as he was also listed in his father's household in Dubuque, age 23, with an occupation of butter cutter in a butter factory and two [should have been three] years married (Myrtle was not listed in this household). By 1911-12, Frank was employed at Morrison Brothers, where he worked the rest of his life, as partner and foreman, and was the factory's treasurer and general superintentent. Available Dubuque city directories list Frank and Myrtle as living at 2146 Couler Avenue, (1911-12), 3029 Jackson (1915), 2776 Jackson (1918), and 648 Chestnut (1923), the last being their permanent residence. The Schumachers also lived at 3165 Elm before moving into the Chestnut street address.

Frank and Myrtle (Binhoff) Schumacher had ten children: Edith, Ethel, George, Warren, Frank, Marcella, John, Raymond "Pete," Robert "Bob," and Mary Schumacher.

            Sandy was employed at Morrison Brothers as a comptroller for over 22 years until her retirement.
            First and foremost, it must be stated that Sandy's primary focus in this life was that of a mother and grandmother. Her unwavering adoration for her family could never be adequately depicted in words. There was never a doubt in the minds of those who held a special place in her heart of her unconditional love for them.
            Secondly, we must admire Sandy's desire to experience life to its fullest. She was a world traveler and her travels took her to Russia, Japan, Brazil, Poland, Turkey, Whitby Island, China, Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, Korea, Mexico, and Egypt, which was her favorite because she traveled with her daughter. She was also a history buff and genealogy guru who found great joy in sharing her experiences with others through stories and photos.
            Sandy was known to spend her free time embracing technology, shopping, gardening, and occasionally finding a treasure at a garage sale. She was a vibrant member of the Friendship Force, the Red Hat Ladies and a longtime faithful member of St. Joseph the Worker Church in Dubuque. Sandy's life was abundantly full and to have had the opportunity to share it with her was an absolute blessing to all who knew and loved her. Sandy's words of wisdom: "Leave nothing unsaid and finish your bucket list"--she topped hers off by skydiving at age 70-- and "Live life to the fullest."

Calvary Cemetery.
