Annabel Helen Schumm

October 5, 1928 — February 10, 2024


Annabel Helen Felgar Schumm, age 95, died peacefully in Centennial, Colorado on February 10, 2024.   Annabel was born to Frank and Audrey Rust in Herrick, SD.  She was the middle child of a farming family that taught her life-long lessons of the importance of hard work within the love of family.  She went on to pursue her schooling in nursing and found a fulfilling career as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.  Annabel celebrated a 30 + year career where she found meaning and purpose in caring for others.  Annabel loved her work and the lifelong relationships she developed.  

Annabel moved to Minneapolis, MN where she met and married her first love, Thomas ‘Tom’ Felgar.   Together they moved to Tucson, AZ where they lived, worked, and raised their family.  Annabel loved the beautiful desert and called Tucson home for over 60 years.  After Tom’s early death, Annabel found love again with O. William ‘Bill’ Schumm with whom she traveled extensively.

Annabel is survived by her daughter, Jean (Brian) Burke of Greenwood Village, CO, sons Jim Felgar and Dan Felgar both of Tucson and two grandsons, Sean Burke (Lindsey) of Minneapolis, MN and Peter Burke-Weiss (Emily) of Denver, CO.  Annabel was especially proud of her great grandchildren Liam Burke, Ruby Burke and William Burke-Weiss.  She found joy in spending time with them during these last years.

Funeral services will take place at St. Thomas the Apostle Roman Catholic Parish 5150 N. Valley View Road, Tucson, AZ 85718 on Friday March 22, 2024 at 10:30 a.m.  A reception will follow.  Internment will take place on Saturday March 23, 2024 at 9:00 a.m. at All Faiths Memorial Park 2151 S. Avenida Los Reyes, Tucson, AZ 85748. All are welcome to join us for any of these celebrations of Annabel’s life.  A memorial in Denver, CO will take place at a later date.

Annabel spent many fulfilling hours volunteering for the St. Vincent de Paul Society.  She found the SVDP mission of service to others meaningful.   She was blessed to make great friendships through her volunteerism.  In lieu of flowers donations can be made to St. Thomas the Apostle Parish with St. Vincent de Paul in the memo line.
