Melvin Schuh was born August 3, 1943, in Beulah ND, the son of Adolf and Ella (Weigum) Schuh. Growing up, he attended school in Beulah and worked at the town’s grocery store and various farming and construction jobs. He met and married Sharon Fandrick on June 13, 1969 in Manning. To this union their daughter Cheryl was born. Together they moved to Colorado for eight years for work before moving back to Killdeer. Melvin enjoyed fishing, watching sports, word searches and puzzles.

Melvin is survived by his wife, Sharon of Killdeer; brothers, Milo of Dickinson, Henry of Sarasota, FL; sister, Betty Geise of Beulah; nephews, Vance (Shelly) Geise, Chris (Randi) Schuh, Nathan Monette; nieces, Julie (Jeff) Singer, Shelly Zocker, Jennifer (Scott) Buckman and Caitlyn (Ryan) Innan.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Adolph and Ella Schuh; daughter, Cheryl; sister, Agnes Zacher; brother, Allen Schuh; brother-in-law, Norman Geise; and niece, Sheila Geise.

I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Stevenson Funeral Home, out here in Dickinson. Last October, they did a wonderful job with the cremation and presentation of our baby boy Forrest.
With the passing of our latest boy, Leo, we didn’t get the option to cremate him, either bury him out here or leave him in the lab until we decided where to bury him. So I contacted Stevenson Funeral Home, who so generously offered to cremate him for us so he could come home and be with his brother. AND they’re only charging us a small fee of $10 for the whole process including his urn.
I was very nervous going in, with all this abortion talk, I was scared I would get laughed at for wanting to cremate a “fetus”. But to us, he is our son, no matter how big or small.
My heart is full knowing Leo can come home finally… I left in a puddle of grateful tears.❤

If you ever end up in such a tragedy as the death of a loved one, I highly recommend Stevenson Funeral Home.. They’re some of the nicest, most generous people I’ve met out here.
