      -------------------------
      Recollections from family members solicited and compiled by Terese Schirmer Piccoli, organized and transcribed by Anne Marie Zellner:

      Sr. Loretta Schirmer (Bernie):

      He was jovial, on the heavy side, balding as I knew him. He had a job at Bamberger’s on the second floor in the linen department. He was always nice to the nieces and nephews.

      I always believed as I was told that he was the first Santa in the Bamberger’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

      He died at a young age of appendicitis, having had an attack at work and ptomaine poisoning set in.

      Mary Agnes (Schirmer) Schoenberger:

      I always think of him as working at Bamberger’s and calling Mother whenever he had a specially good bargain he thought we could use. I especially remember a few beautiful large tablecloths and napkins that had been special ordered and came with the wrong initials, so we got them “dirt cheap.” It didn’t matter to us that the initial was not an “S.”

      Uncle Charlie also put Mom in touch with a supervisor of children’s clothes in Bamberger’s Basement and she would call Mom at the beginning of the sale and Mom agreeing, she would pick out a dozen or so of the nicest dresses in various sizes and send them to our house. She knew with so many girls, if a dress didn’t fit one, it would fit another.

      I remember Uncle Charlie as being fat and jolly and a loving tease.

      Fr. Martin Mager (Joe Mager):

      Charlie Mager was an avid deep sea fisherman and would get out whenever he could. I have no idea where he got that hobby, but I do recall a famous family photograph of Charlie with a couple of HUMONGOUS tunas.

      Buddy Sieben:

      Uncle Charlie worked as a salesman in the linen department of Bamberger’s Dept. store. He never was married. He lived with his mother, Aunt Jotty and Ferd on the 2nd floor, plus 1 attic room, at 168 Seymour Ave in Newark. Many times in the summer, I would walk there from Montgomery St. to visit and weed the garden in the back yard. Charlie would send me to the store to buy him cigars and give me 10 cents for candy. Unfortunately, he died at an early age, around 50, I believe.

      Anne Marie (Schirmer) Cuff (“Clockie”):

      Sharper than Ferd and a happy man. My remarks about Ferd can well describe Uncle Charlie. He was a bit more visible. Mentor to George Zellner.

      Joan (Zellner) Scheuermann:

      A happy cigar-smoking fellow. He was a linen salesman for L. Bamberger, a department store in Newark, bought later by Macy’s. He was really good to us kids -- especially my brother. When George got too big to sleep in the same room with me and Anne, Uncle Charlie took him up to his room on the third floor and looked after him from bedtime to morning. He loved the NY World’s Fair (1939) -- took George at least once a month when it was open.

      He was a big tease, loved to be where the kids were -- picnics, parties or whatever. Spent a lot of time with the family -- never married, loved being home. He suffered a massive intestinal infection from which he died in the hospital, Feb. 9, 1942.
