Daisy Irene (Shimek) Mundschenk passed away on December 27, 2015 at Banner Del Webb Medical Center, Sun City West, Arizona. Daisy was born on November 4, 1930 in a sod house in Leverett, Wyoming to Edward E. and Dora A. (Mabin) Shimek. She was the 6th of 11 children.
Daisy married Harold R. Mundschenk on September 6, 1953 in Lusk, Wyoming. They met in a country elementary school in 1943. Daisy would tell you that she had found her man. With this union, a blessed family began.
She is survived by her husband of 62 years and their four children; sons Kent (Susan) of Fayetteville, Georgia, Brad of Ingleside, Illinois, Steven (Patti) of Rolling Meadows, Illinois, and daughter Linda (Craig) Vossler of Mesa, Arizona. She was the proud grandmother of 11; Jennifer, Karen, Melissa, Ryan, Patrick, Brandon, Troy, Christopher, Erin, Alyssa, and Lauren. She is also survived by two sisters, Mary (Jim) Richardson of Reedsport, Oregon and Lindie (Dale) Johnson of Grand Prairie, Texas, as well as many nieces and nephews. Daisy was preceded in death by her parents, four brothers and four sisters.
Daisy graduated from Lusk High School in 1948. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Home Economics from Chadron State College, Nebraska. After moving to Illinois in 1966, she earned a teaching certificate and taught Library Science for 10 years.
Shortly after Harold's retirement, they relocated to Sun City West in 1992. They quickly became members of Desert Palms Presbyterian Church where Daisy became involved in many activities. She and her husband were actively involved in square and round dance clubs in Sun City West.
She will be interned in the Desert Palms Presbyterian Church columbarium. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to the Desert Palms Presbyterian Church at 13459 W. Stardust Blvd, Sun City West, Arizona 85375; or the charity of your choice. Please join the Mundschenk family in sharing memories and pictures on her tribute wall at www.caminodelsol.com.
