November 23, 1917 – January 21, 2023
Lillian Adelle (Schram) Holubec, 105, passed into the arms of her Lord and Savior on January 21, 2023. She was the first born to Charlie A. and Emma (Schmidt) Schram on November 23, 1917, in the small German farming community of Kurten, Texas, where she was a lifelong resident. Lillian graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in May of 1936. On October 12, 1940, she married the young man from across the fence, Albin F. Holubec. Lillian was a lifetime member of Zion Church of Kurten. Lillian could speak three languages, German, Spanish and English. When she was young, she and her siblings attended German school on Saturday. During WWII, she briefly lived in Houston to help with war efforts, working in a factory. Following that, she worked for many years at the International Shoe Co, where she was a supervisor. She was very active with the American Legion Auxiliary and VFW. She enjoyed to crochet, work crossword puzzles, word search, sudoku, watching old movies, music and playing dominoes. After one pass around the 42 table, she knew every domino everyone had in their hand and won every round. She also loved to take group travel tours, visiting every state but Alaska, and also to Europe. She loved working in her yard, gardening, and always canning vegetables and jellies, especially tomato preserves. Lillian was a wonderful cook. On Halloween everyone would stop by her home for a fresh popcorn ball. Every Saturday night she would host a family gathering to visit, play games, do hand work and catch up on the latest happenings. She also loved animals, especially her cats and dogs. Lillian was a very cheerful person, even into her last years. She was always smiling and never complained. She was generous to all, and grateful to everyone who aided her. Lillian is preceded in death by her parents and her husband of 56 years, Ablin F. Holubec; her six siblings, Anna Watson and her husband Edward, John Schram and his wife Bernice, Emmett Schram, Leona Schram, Cora Younger, Charlene Campbell and her husband Harvey. She is survived by her brother in-law, Jimmie Younger, as well as her nephew, Mike Kristynik, who took special care of her. Along with numerous other nieces and nephews, she was loved by many. The family wishes to thank the staff at Broadmoor Place for nearly ten years of love and caring, and to the staff of Enhabit Hospice for their care of Lillian in her final days. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Lillian’s memory to the Kurten Cemetery Association or to Zion Church of Kurten. Graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at Kurten Cemetery in Kurten, Texas. Family and friends will gather after services for a time of fellowship at Zion Church of Kurten.See more See Less
