Obituary for Bernice F Schirck

Bernice F. Schirck, 88, De Pere, WI and Glidden, WI, passed away Friday, December 8, 2017 with her family at her side. She was born March 6, 1929 in Glidden, WI to Peter and Emma (Zach) Pankratz. On September 15, 1956 Bernice married Robert A. Schirck in Glidden, WI. He preceded her in death on February 20, 1998.
Bernice spent 40 years married to the love of her life, Robert. In addition to being a wonderful wife, Bernice was a stay at home mom. There were always home cooked meals on the table and big Sunday dinners at noon. Bernice was a talented seamstress and made clothing for her daughters along with their dolls. Bernice played an active role in her grandson Jeremy’s upbringing and always enjoyed his company as well as that of her second grandson Sammy. Bernice and Robert enjoyed travelling within the U.S. and foreign countries (Mexico and Germany). Additionally, they had opportunities to live in many states including Missouri, Michigan, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. They also enjoyed downhill skiing together. She was an avid bridge player and got together regularly with her lady friends for their bridge club. In her later years, she enjoyed her dinners out with her lady friends from Glidden and road trips to the Casinos to gamble. Bernice enjoyed reading and playing solitaire on the kindle. She liked to stay active and neighbors would see her out shoveling, mowing, or going for walks regularly. She enjoyed her Thursday hair appointment with Tiffany and weekly activities and meals at the Glidden Senior Center.
Bernice is survived by her three daughters: Becky Schirck, Bonita Meadows (Mike), and Beth (Jack) Smith; two grandsons: Jeremy (Anne) Meadows and Samual Smith; an adopted grandson Trey Meadows; Jack’s children: Sara (Andy) Koltz and Brittany Smith (Logan); and her great granddaughters: Emma Meadows and Laura on the way. She is further survived by her brother Donald (Barbara) Pankratz; sister Betty Beuchs; sister-in-law Lucille Pankratz; godchild Jessica Beuchs; dear friend Dolores Kempf; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Bernice was preceded in death by her husband Robert; parents Peter and Emma Pankratz; brothers: Raymond Pankratz and Harold (Harriet) Pankratz; sister-in-law Audrey (Henry) Saur; brothers-in-law: Lee Schirck, Jr and Ronald Beuchs; her father and mother-in-law: Lee and Zoa (Wade) Schirck; and other family members.
