Edythe Marie Gansow Lemke of Yorktown passed from this world Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015. Her son Kurt Lemke, and daughter-in-law Diana Dworaczyk, were with her and holding her hands to the end. She was 86 years old.
Edythe was born October 24, 1928 in Yorktown, Texas, the only child of Arthur and Bertha (Waitschies) Gansow. She is survived by Kurt and Diana and their children Kami Lane Lemke of Seattle, Washington and Aaron Gray Lemke of Austin. Edythe was always “Mimi” to them. She was preceded in death by her parents and Kurt’s father Felton Lemke.
It was fitting that Edythe departed on Easter Sunday. She was known for living and sharing the same kind of unconditional love for others that Christ asked of us all, and to which most of us can only aspire. And while her immediate family was small, she was loved by many extended family members, friends and caregivers.
