SOUTH PALM BEACH — Patricia Catherine Schulmayr died June 19 after a brief illness. She was 86.
10745967691?profile=RESIZE_180x180Born on Feb. 20, 1936, to John and Catherine McCarthy, Mrs. Schulmayr was blessed with a loving family and married to the love of her life, Joseph Schulmayr, who predeceased her.
After finishing high school, Pat graduated from the Brown Business School in New York City. Prior to rearing her family, she worked as personal secretary to the CEO of sales of NBC in New York. While her children were growing up, Mrs. Schulmayr worked as personal secretary to the principal at the high school that she and all her children attended in Amityville, New York.
 Mrs. Schulmayr moved to South Palm Beach in 1985 and immediately began putting everyone else before herself — whether it was working with people in recovery from the throes of addiction, or activism in her local community. Mrs. Schulmayr transferred her experience and energy into her condo association, was elected councilwoman and, eventually, became vice mayor of South Palm Beach. 
 Mrs. Schulmayr’s passions were her family, walking on the beach, collecting beach glass, traveling with her husband, Joe, solving crossword puzzles and an occasional casino visit. She will be truly missed. 
 Mrs. Schulmayr is survived by her daughter Susan Allen (George); and her sons Robert Schlinger, Ross Schlinger (Maureen) and Patrick Schlinger (Shelly). She is also survived by grandchildren Taylour, Gavin, Logan, Megan Long (Donnie), Carli, Kaitlin, Samantha, Jennifer and John. She is survived by one great-grandchild, Charlie James.
