Mary Schuchard Mol, age 78, passed away peacefully at her home in Manlius on August 9, 2019, surrounded by her husband of 58 years and their 3 children. Having battled Multiple Sclerosis for several years before a recent diagnosis of cancer, Mary was unfailingly positive, often saying, “I focus on what I can do, not what I can’t.”

Mary was a beacon of faith and inspiration for all who knew her. She adored her family and loved her church and many friends. With her capacity for deep and compassionate listening, she helped countless persons through tough times, including all those she supported for 26 years as Program Coordinator for Contact Community Services. She was a constant reader and was sustained by her daily spiritual practices of personal contemplation and centering prayer.

Raised in Charlevoix, Michigan, Mary is survived by her husband, Bob, who she met in Kindergarten. She is also survived by 3 children, Colleen, Rob (Kay) and Dan (Jean); 7 grandchildren, Meghan, Mary, Sean, Ellyn, Olivia, Kylie, Daniel; 2 great grandchildren, Ellery and Hudson; her brother and sister-in-law, David and Linda Schuchard; her sisters-in-law, Nomie and Darlene Mol; many nieces and nephews, and countless friends.

Mary’s family is very thankful to so many friends who provided comfort, prayers, and support.

Family and friends may call from 4 – 7 pm on Friday, August 23rd, at the Newell-Fay Manlius Chapel. The Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, August 24th at 10 am at Trinity Episcopal Church in Fayetteville.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to Trinity Episcopal Church, 106 Chapel St., Fayetteville, NY 13066.

I was a volunteer on the Contact Hotline for the entire 26 years Mary was there. She touched and will continue to touch hundreds of lives through her skills answering calls on the hotline and her training of dozens of volunteers who continue to use (both when taking calls at Contact and in their personal lives) what they learned from her. I will remember her for her remarkable empathy and her resilience and determination as she met challenges in her life. She will always be one of my "most admired people".

It is impossible to calculate the number of persons whose lives have been touched and changed by Mary. I happen to be one of them. The training at Contact in the spring of 1990 under Mary's constant tutelage and kind support definitively changed the way I relate and listen to others. And I am happily transmitting to others Mary's living example of non judgmental listening as I continue at Contact to this day in Philadelphia. I remember one day on Oak Street when Mary came to work wearing two different shoes. In a rush that morning she hadn't noticed; she brushed it off and remained completely unfazed. Had it been me, it would have turned my day upside down. But Mary accepted herself and others as they are and put things into perspective. This was one of Mary's great teachings by example. Mary and I frequently discussed politics and religion, both laughing and commiserating. She frequently said that for her Chrisitanity is not about what you do but what you do for others. That is Mary's legacy and I am proud to transmit that legacy of service to others as a link in chain of the countless persons affected by Mary's life among us.
