Gloria SCHIMSK Obituary

Our beloved mother, grandmother and friend Gloria Schimsk, passed away on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at the age of 82 after a short illness. Gloria was born October 11, 1931 in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania to Norris and Ida Fry. She was an only child and lived in Pennsylvania where she graduated from high school. She then enlisted in the U.S. Airforce, where she met and married her first husband David Harris. She was widowed at the age of 26. She later married Herbert Schimsk, who preceded her in death in 2009.

Gloria's retirement years were spent traveling with her late husband Herb, garage sale shopping with her daughter and friend Debbie, playing bridge at the Baca Center with lots of new friends and taking care of her beloved puppy Lilly.

Gloria is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Debbie and David Leggett, her son and daughter in-law David and Jan Schimsk; her 10 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held Friday, August 1, 2014 at 6pm, at Life Connection Church, 3109 E. Old Settlers Blvd., Round Rock, Texas.
