Congratulations, Ed and Marian

Congratulations to Drs. Marian and Ed Schoenheit, who were honored last evening at the Memory Makers gala of the Alzheimer’s Association of Central New York. The Schoenheits have been active in the Association for ten years, following Ed’s diagnosis with Alzheimer’s disease.

Marian Schoenheit, EdD, is a Board member of Community General Hospital, and Ed Schoenheit, MD, is a past president of its medical staff.

Prior to her retirement, Marian served as Associate Dean of Professional Studies at SUNY Oswego, Director of Elementary Education for the Liverpool Central School District, and as a principal in the West Genesee Central School District. She is a past Board member of the Onondaga County Public Libraries and United Way of Central New York, Board Chair of Skaneateles Savings Bank and past President of the local Pres-Ex Forum and United Cerebral Palsy Association.

Ed, an internist, practiced at Community until the mid 1980's, when he retired from medicine to study law. He is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and Syracuse University College of Law. Ed is a past medical director of Oswego Hospital and A. L. Lee Memorial Hospital in Fulton, NY, and he is a member of Syracuse’s Century Club and a past member of the Syracuse Home Association.

What the brief bio's don't say is what smart and humble and able people they are. It is a privilege to know the Schoenheits. Congratulations to a wonderful couple...wonderful citizens of our community.
