Paul and Pam Schell

Paul and Pam Schell

Sunday, July 27

It is with great sadness and grief that we mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague Paul Schell, and we share our heartfelt sympathies with Pam and the Schell family. Paul passed away this morning, and leaves an enormous hole in our hearts, lives and community.  Paul and Pam have been inseparable, and we wrap our arms around Pam right now. 

Paul has been an incredible, dynamic visionary and positive force in our community, and a steadfast supporter and ambassador for Whidbey Island Center for the Arts.  He believed that Art Changes Lives.  A community rich in the arts thrives, he would say.  WICA has been blessed by the many ways that Pam and Paul have played a part in WICA. 

We will miss you dearly, Paul.  Be at peace.

With deepest sympathy,
George Henny
President of the Board of Whidbey Island Center for the Arts

Great art—art that entertains, challenges, and inspires, art that takes us on a beautiful shared experience—can only be realized in partnership with you.
