Obituary for Gloria Elizabeth Martha Degner

(nee Schroeder) Born to heaven’s glory on April 9th, 2018, at age 92. Beloved wife of Robert Erwin, dear mother of Christine (James) Casterson, Mark (Linda) Degner, Deborah (Glenn) Klumb, Jennifer (Michael) Graf, Laura (Bradley) Patterson, Suzanne (John) Denecke, Daniel (engaged to Julie) Degner, Jeffrey (Angie) Degner and Steven (Markie) Degner.

Further loved by 24 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by her sisters and their husbands, Darlene and Ken Trepinski and Nancy and Dennis Walsh, and infant brother, William. Also survived by many other relatives and friends.

Gloria embodied the love of Jesus throughout her life. She lived a servant lifestyle in regard to her family and loved people unconditionally. A dyed-in-the-wool faithful Lutheran Church Missouri Synod member, she and Robert diligently raised their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Gloria was so humble, that even if she knew it, she wouldn’t admit to positively impacting the lives of those she touched. It was impossible to not notice her smile, and she hugged like each one was her last. Gloria loved to cook, read, send greeting cards and listen to music, especially hymns. A woman of small stature with a heart larger than life; if you knew Gloria, wonderful memories have been indelibly etched upon your mind. She, by grace alone through faith in Christ Jesus, has been saved and is forevermore rejoicing at the throne of our Lord.

Visitation will be Saturday, April 14th at ELM GROVE EV. LUTHERAN CHURCH, 945 Terrace Drive from 1:00 pm until time of service at 3:00 pm. Desserts and refreshments will be served after. Internment at Highland Memorial Park.

Memorials to Elm Grove Lutheran Church and School, LCMS Joint Seminary Fund and Lutheran Heritage Foundation.
