Death Notice / Obituary


In Memory Of Tina Marie Schomber

Tina  Marie Schomber

On Saturday, Aug. 29th  the Schomber family buried their beloved daughter, sister, mother and aunt, who perished as a result of a devastating house fire that completely destroyed her family’s home on Marquette Drive in Smithtown.

This was the home where Tina Schomber grew up with her brothers Sal and Mike, her devoted father, Don and their mom, Angela who lost her life over a decade ago. Tina still lived there with her family,  until the early Sunday morning hours of August 9th when smoke and fire blocked her escape as she attempted to save her cherished pets.

For over two weeks, Tina suffered unimaginable pain in the ICU at Stony Brook University Hospital; while family and friends held onto the hope that she would recover to rejoin them in a search for a new home. But it wasn’t meant to be. One tragedy led to another when Tina lost her courageous battle on August 25th. Now a grieving family is left with nothing but memories of that happy home reduced to a mound of charred debris .

A few heart breaking pictures of Tina as a child, one  in her Holy Communion dress, were lifted from the ashes. Other photos, show a house full of love with celebrations of all the wonderful milestones of family life. This was a home where all the children’s friends, neighbors  and family were always welcome. A place of nurturing and friendship - all  gone ,except for those memories that nothing can erase. Tina’s smiling face gives testimony to the love she gave as well as received in the short time she lived here on earth. She will be remembered for her delightful sense of humor, her kindness and her love for all creatures.

Despite the sorrow these tragedies have brought ,the outpouring of unconditional love and support from the community brings enormous consolation to her family. May Tina Marie Schomber rest in  peace in the arms of the angels.
