In Loving Memory

Schieber, Doris Ann (nee Wirthensohn)

Went to be with the Lord and her heavenly family on May 13, 2023.   She was born on September 11, 1930 to Florence and Alphonse Wirthensohn in St. Louis.  She was the beloved wife of the late Thomas R. Schieber.  She attended St. Elizabeth’s Academy from 1944 – 1948 and Harris Teachers College from 1948-1950.  Tom and Doris were married at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church on September 10, 1955 and had 58 wonderful years together, raising their family in the Pebble Hill neighborhood of St. Louis.  It was there where they made so many lifelong true friends. They attended St. Dominic Savio Catholic Church for over 40 years.  Doris worked for the Socony Oil Company for several years after college and for the St. Louis Public School System for nineteen years.

Doris was the loving mother to Joelle Lowing (Robert), Anne Gross (Mike), Jeanne  Heekin (Mike), Sally Difani (Dave), Tom Schieber (Tally) and Dan Schieber (Dave). She was the adoring grandmother to Patrick Gross (James), Elizabeth Gross Pree (Joey), Florina Moore (Jason), Andrew Heekin, Mary Heekin Wilby (James), Ben and Claire Difani, Tatum, Delaney, Carson, John Paul and Mitchell Schieber and the great-grandmother to Davine, Colton and Ally Moore and Evelyn Pree.

Doris had many fun and relaxing years at the Bethesda-Orchard Community in Webster Groves, where she was crowned “Queen of Bethesda – Orchard” in 2022.   She will be forever remembered for her enduring faith in God, her strong love for family, her kindness to everyone she met, and of course her sharp bridge game. We love you so much mom and we thank you for your strength and the steadfast love you gave to all of us.   Please hold a place for us in heaven!

Services:  Visitation on Friday, May 19, 2023, 9:00am – 10:00am at Seven Holy Founders Catholic Church, 6741 Rock Hill Road, St. Louis, 63123.  Funeral Mass immediately following Visitation at 10:00am, Seven Holy Founders Church.  Interment immediately following Mass at Resurrection Cemetery.    In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation in Doris’ name, to The Affton Historical Society (Oakland House), P.O. Box 28855 St. Louis, MO 63123.
