Message From The Family

Thank you for your support during this difficult time, made extra difficult with COVID restrictions. Please make this tribute to Cam more meaningful by adding your memories and photos. We would really appreciate it.

Camilla Ann Pomasl (nee Steiner, formerly Schill) - Cam

Heaven gained the brightest light as Cam joined her parents, her late husband George (Porky) Schill, and their dogs Noki and Fred (and Schmitty kitty) on the early morning of August 9, 2020 at just 78 years young. A cardiac event quickly took her from us very unexpectedly during a bout with colon cancer. She is survived by her beloved husband Tony Pomasl, two daughters, Colleen (Jon) Schoenike, Shelly Plehn (John Gorenc), Step-daughter Mischel Pomasl, Step-son Kim Pomasl, Special friends, Ethel Galeano and Jody Plehn. Proud Grandma of Zachary, Jesse, Tanner and Kendall Schoenike, Taylor and Mackenzie Plehn, Tara Gonzalez, Jacob and Anthony Sessions, Andrew and Mathew Pomasl. Great grandmother of 3. Big sister to Anthony (Diane) Steiner, Greg Steiner and sister-in-law, Barbette Steiner. Aunt to Tony, Paul, Matt and Shandra Steiner, plus a host of Schills!

Camilla was born on January 6, 1942 and passed away on August 9th, 2020. She was most recently a resident of Mount Hope, Wisconsin, and wintered in Pharr, Texas. She spent most of her life in Waukesha County. Times on Apple Tree Lane were fun with their best friends on the lane - the O'Neills, the Pattons and the Kuehls. Her girls would like to thank Ed and (the late) Betty Gaffney for reaching out to their mom when their dad passed - it meant a lot to her. She worked for 20+ years as an orthodontic assistant for Dr. Richard Offerman; and made many best friends there. While in Texas, she enjoyed friends Red and Betty, crossing the Texas/Mexico border for margaritas, a Mexican lunch, shopping and geode cracking. "Couples dinners" with more special friends were a monthly event that she and Tony looked forward to and enjoyed. She was an avid reader, great cook and travel partner. She supported her Catholic Churches unconditionally and volunteered her time getting those less able-bodied to Church. Her claim to fame is naming Arrowhead High School in Hartland through an area wide contest.

We pray that she is granted rest, peace and joy as she rejoins our Lord God and Creator. May her bright light shine for others, as perpetual light shines upon her. Father, give her life that will not age, reunion with her loved ones and great things that will not pass away. Heaven has indeed gained another angel.

There will be a Celebration of Life at Pewaukee Village Park, 325 Capitol Dr, Pewaukee, on Saturday, August 22 from 1-4pm.
Snacks at 1:00PM
Short prayer service at 2:00PM.

Please keep in mind the WI COVID guidelines to respect all in attendance. We will have hand sanitizer and masks on hand.
If you can easily bring a lawn chair if you care to visit, that would be great. Limited tables are available.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations to Hope Street Ministry, Inc., for the building of a new community center named "Shechem."

Te quiero mucho y te agradezco por recibirme en tu casa y en tu corazon, me hubiese encantado que conocieras a mis hijos... que triste pensar que no estas, y no podremos hablar mas... besos y abrazos al cielo.

Mom, I wish you were here. I had so many plans for us once you moved back to the area. I wish this all didn't happen during the time of COVID. I also wish you weren't always the one TAKING the photos, so that we had more photos with you in them. I miss you. I love you. Make sure you're ready when I get there. I will be looking for you.
