Gifts & Memorial Donations

Shelly Schumaker Iorizzo started her new life on April 1, 2014. Shelly was 47 years old, survived by a loving family: her husband Lou, their children Tyler and Monica, stepchildren Vanessa, Luciano III (Dana,) and their two children Daniel and Lydia.

Shelly is also survived by her parents Gary and Joy Schumaker, her sister Sherry (Jim) Best, brother Wayne (Sarah) Schumaker, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles.

First and foremost, Shelly was a devoted mother. Her love was unconditional and gave her the determination to face terminal illness, enduring treatments willingly to give her one more month, week, day or minute with her children.

Shelly was all about relationships. Her sharp wit and laughter attracted many friends, especially her husband. Together, they built their life and family, making lasting relationships in New York, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Arizona and Virginia.

Shelly will be deeply missed for her passion for life and compassion for others. She was an excellent cook, the life of any party, and overwhelmingly generous. Her selfless nature was present throughout her life. Her final gift was the gift of sight through the donation of her corneas so that others may see life through her eyes.

There will be two celebrations. The first will take place in Virginia at Bucktrout of Williamsburg on Sunday, April 6. The family will receive visitors from 3 to 5 pm with a service immediately following at the Bucktrout Chapel.

Family and friends will also celebrate Shelly in her hometown of Hannibal, New York at the Foster Funeral Home on Thursday, April 10. Calling hours are from 2 to 5 pm with service to follow.

Shellyís lifelong love of music can be honored through memorial contributions to the Williamsburg Music Club, P.O. Box 1808 Williamsburg, VA
