Rest in peace Tarey

JB Taylor

Lord, hear our prayers; in your mercy, bring us to your place of peace and light the soul of your servant, Tarey Schell, whom you have summoned from this world. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Ron Hannon

I remember Tarey with respect and affection. When I first arrived as an instructor in the English Dept. in '71, he was my group leader. Throughout the year and thereafter, he always impressed me with his wisdom, sense of humor, and gentleness. Years later I returned to WP for another tour as a 'P' and he hosted me for an interview for a job while he was working in the Dean's office. Again, he was gracious and supportive. My life was better for having known him. He was a very caring man. May he rest in peace.

Tarey Schell was laid to rest on September 10 in Peachtree City, GA, having succumbed to a severe stroke earlier in the week. Death was sudden, painless, and unexpected. Priscilla was strong through her grief and was buoyed by the presence of her four children, nine grandchildren, in-laws, and friends. Over the years, Tarey had quietly become a much admired jurist, first as a juvenile court justice and, more recently, as a drug court judge. Indeed, his eulogists included two souls who admitted openly that Tarey was responsible for turning their lives around and an assistant who considered Tarey a second father. A friend recited the Cadet Prayer at Priscilla’s request and closed by saying that he felt Tarey was the embodiment of the Prayer and was “probably the best of us all.” His honor guard was from local law enforcement, further evidence of the respect he had earned over the years through his honesty and forthrightness from the bench.

Dave Phillips's (USMA '62)

To my brother, Tarey, may you rest in peace.

Your loving sister, Cathleen Schell Kirkpatrick
and your brother-in-law, Jerry and two nieces, Alicia and Allison.
