Kathleen "Kathy" L (Schumacher) Mcclure

August 8, 1948 — August 23, 2023

North Manchester

Kathleen L. “Kathy” McClure, 75, North Manchester, passed from this life and joined her husband Tom in Heaven on August 23, 2023. The daughter of Herman and Doris (Troxel) Schumacher, Kathy was born on August 8, 1948, in Onarga, Illinois.

During her elementary and middle school years, Kathy grew up on a farm in Silver Lake before moving to South Whitley, where she graduated high school in 1966. She worked at Custom Magnetics for forty-six years and part-time at Timbercrest, Peabody, and Nordmann’s Nook, all of which are in North Manchester. Kathy was a ray of sunshine who was always positive and enjoyed being social. She had a passion for dancing and was a member of the Roann Renegades Line Dancers. Nothing, however, held a candle to the love she had for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A woman of faith, Kathy loved her Lord Jesus Christ and worshiped at the First Brethren Church in North Manchester, where she was a member and part of the nurture group.

On August 25, 1990, Kathy married Tom McClure. Each bringing their own children into the marriage, they became one family. During their twenty-five years together, the two had numerous adventures and made many memories together. On November 10, 2015, Kathy lost Tom when the Lord called him home.

The loving memory of Kathy McClure will be forever cherished by her daughters, Marjory (Brian) Stayer and Danielle McClure, both of North Manchester; son, Jeff (Amy) McClure, Valdosta, Georgia; brothers, Charles Schumacher, Warsaw and Robert Schumacher, New Bern, North Carolina; grandchildren, Brandon (Aisha) Stayer, Micaela Luevano, Isabela Luevano, Cesar Luevano, Caroline (Levi) Watson, Zachary (Wendy) McClure, Kala McClure, and Zachary Wilkinson; and eight great-grandchildren. Kathy was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Tom McClure; brothers, Paul, Ray, and David Schumacher; and sister, Janet Boyack.

Family and friends may call Saturday, August 26, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at McKee Mortuary, 1401 State Road 114 West, North Manchester. A celebration of Kathy’s life will be held following the visitation with Pastor Kurt Stout officiating.
