Neil Eugene Schuermann went home to his Lord on January 21, 2019. He was born June 6, 1929 in Pond Creek, OK, to Henry and Heylin Schuermann. Neil and his four siblings were raised on the family farm in Pond Creek, OK. He was an active young man who played the drums in the school band and was a star football and basketball player. He graduated from Pond Creek High School in 1948. He attended Oklahoma A & M College, in Stillwater, Oklahoma, on a football scholarship for one year before enlisting in the Air Force in 1950. Neil was first stationed in Casa Blanca, Africa and then he returned to the states and was stationed at Laughlin Air Force Base, in Del Rio, TX. During that time, he and his Air Force buddies would drive home to Oklahoma on leave. During one of those trips, they ran into 3 lovely nursing students who were just leaving the Ponca City movie theater. One of those lovely ladies was Marge Hindman. Marge & Neil began dating and a courtship ensued. They wrote letters back and forth, often, and every time Neil had a chance for leave, he would make his way to Oklahoma to see Marge. They were married in Ponca City, Oklahoma on September 17, 1954. They had been married just 1 month shy of 60 years. After they were married, Marge and Neil moved to Pond Creek, Oklahoma. Neil spent his time farming for his dad and they had their first child, Sue, whom Neil always called “Susie-Q.” A year after they were married, they moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma so that Neil could finish his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture degree from Oklahoma A & M College. They were blessed to see their family continue to grow with the birth of their second daughter, Cindee, and then their son, Scott, a few year later. Neil graduated from college in 1958. After graduation, the family moved to Billings, Oklahoma where Neil ran a sheep farm and they had their fourth child, a daughter named Tamie. Neil and Marge raised their family of 4 children in Oklahoma, Arizona, California, and eventually ended up back in Oklahoma.

Neil was always active in the Methodist church, wherever they lived, and a beloved member of the community. Neil has been a Mason since 1955 and was a lifetime member of Pond Creek Lodge No. 125. He enjoyed drinking coffee, keeping up with all the current happenings in the community, attending all the basketball and football games that he could, and visiting with family and friends, especially at church. Above all, he was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather. He was a great Christian man and an example to his family and friends.

Neil is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Marge; daughter, Sue; two brothers, Clair Schuermann and Ken Schuermann; and granddaughter, DeeAnna Warford. Neil is survived by his children, Cindee Herron of Norman, OK, Scott and Pam Schuermann of Yukon, OK, and Tamie and Brian Dickerson of Oklahoma City, OK; grandchildren, Debbie Herron and Carmen, Chris and Crista Herron, Bryan and Stacy Herron, Natalie and Brian Smith, Valerie and Jason Black, Ashley and Kevin Allen, Niki and Travis Burdett, Taylor and Kate Dickerson and Brice Dickerson; and a host of great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Also surviving him are his siblings, Rollie Cooper and Roy Schuermann. Neil also leaves behind a countless number of friends and acquaintances. He never met a stranger and was always known for his, “Hello, hello, hello.”

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, January 27, 2019 at the United Methodist Church of the Good Shepherd – Christian Life Center (CLC) (back of the church), 10928 S.W. 15th Street, Yukon, Oklahoma.

Hello Cindee, Scott & Tamie –

The Koontz family has so many warm and cherished memories of your Dad and your Mom. They were both amazingly kind and giving, and seemed to always display a warm smile and welcoming personality. Given that Carla and I both worked, your Dad and Mom were almost like parents for our sons Chris and Erich – and certainly shared their love of life with the boys (along with a little but frequent discipline for good measure). We are so very thankful that God allowed us to be a part of your family for so many years in Yukon!

We have a strong faith and know that your Dad has now joined your Mom back Home with our Father in Heaven. And we know that eventually we’ll be with them as well. Please know that Neil and Marge were both special blessings in our lives.

Randy, Annette, Chris, Erich and Carla
