ObituaryJan 18, 2004  OBITUARY: Mecklenburg NC - Margaret Snow Schilling, a resident of Sunrise Living in Charlotte, N.C., passed away peacefully on Friday, January 2, 2004. She was born June 9, 1914, in Brewster, Mass. Lovingly called "Non" by her family and friends, Mrs. Schilling celebrated life, love, family, friends, art and the sea.

An accomplished professional painter, Mrs. Schilling was passionate about art and loved it in all of its forms. She began her art education at age 13 upon winning a scholarship to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, where she studied for five years. After graduating from the Massachusetts College of Art, she worked in advertising and design in New York City.

While living in Darien, Conn., she studied the new movements in painting technique and philosophy at Silvermine Guild of Art and later with Theodoros Stamos, the noted Abstract Expressionist.
A former resident of LaGrange, Ga., where she is primarily known for her portraits, Mrs. Schilling was an original founder of the Chattahoochee Valley Art Association. Over the years, she experimented in many painting styles, which emphasized the joyous moments in life - especially the world of children. Her portraits captured the essence and spirit of the many who sought her work. She worked in her studio in New York City and summered in Watch Hill, R.I.

Mrs. Schilling is survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Joseph V. Schilling, son Lee H. Schilling and his wife Sharon, and daughter Linda S. Martine and husband Layng, and Peggy Schilling Regan and husband Charles. The family also includes 13 grandchildren, three great grandchildren and many great friends.

In keeping with her wishes, Mrs. Schilling will be cremated, with her ashes to be spread over the ocean at a memorial service to be held this summer at the Watch Hill Chapel in Watch Hill, R.I. A date has yet to be set.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that gifts be sent to Hospice at Charlotte, 1420 East Seventh Street, Charlotte, N.C. 28204, in memory of Marge Schilling.
