Industry, TX

Gilbert Edward Canik, 84, of Industry, TX, passed away suddenly on September 20, 2023 in College Station, Texas. He was born on January 9, 1939 to Rudolph I. Canik and Lorena (Crenek) Canik in Frelsburg, Texas. On October 6, 1963, he married Darlene Huebner. They were married for 31 years, until Darlene's untimely death from cancer in 1994. Gilbert was employed by the Texas Department of Transportation where he worked in the Engineering Department as a records keeper for 41 years. Gilbert was also very proud of his service to our Country in the U. S. Army. He was an active member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church serving in various roles throughout the years, the Industry Knights of Columbus Council # 10224 and the Shelby American Legion Post # 602. The Knights of Columbus organization always held a special place in his heart. Before the formation of the Industry Council, he belonged to the Msgr. Gury Council #5157 in Frelsburg. There he held the positions of Grand Knight, District Deputy and began his lengthy tenure as Financial Secretary. He was one of several who helped form the Msgr. Edward Geiser Council #10224 in Industry and was honored to serve as their Financial Secretary for 31 years. He did so with great devotion and enthusiasm and this by far was his greatest accomplishment. He was diligent in his record keeping and never missed a deadline. His organizational skills assisted the council in receiving various awards, including The Texas State Charity Award received for many years running. Proudly he held this position until his retirement in July of 2021. Gilbert loved polka and waltz music, listening to Ricky's Polka Show on KULM, and keeping Ricky supplied with birthday and anniversary requests for family and friends throughout the years. Dancing was a favorite pastime for him and wife, Darlene. They were known to be quite graceful on the dance floor and could really cut a rug. Gilbert enjoyed working with his cattle and working on the farm. Devoted to his family, Gilbert was a wonderful husband and father. He waited for his daily phone call from Cindy at 8:30am and let her know if she was late. He was a proud PawPaw to his grandsons, Jesse and Ethan, who he loved dearly. He was always there for them and could be found at their Little League games, band marching competitions, and various other activities throughout the years. There are many wonderful memories including road trips that always resulted in getting lost, going to AstroWorld, the Aggie vs. TCU bowl game, rides on the Farmall tractor, and playing board games, not knowing the rules and making up their own as they went, just to name a few. Gilbert is survived by his daughter, Cindy Wilde, and husband Ed of Frelsburg, son Ricky Canik of Industry; grandchildren Jesse Brannon and wife Krystin of Lucas, TX and Ethan Brannon and wife Amber of Pewaukee, Wisconsin; sisters Madeline Vitek and Dorothy Gully of Fayetteville and sister in law, Shirley Klaus of Brenham. Many nieces and nephews also survive. He was preceded in death by his parents, Rudolph and Lorena Canik; wife, Darlene Canik; brothers in law Clem Gully, Jr. , Frank Vitek, and Roy Klaus. Visitation will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2023 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Henneke Funeral Home in Columbus, Texas.

Katharina  Schulze

Aug 18, 1925 - Sep 08, 2023

location-icon

Industry, TX

Katharina (Katy) Rebel Schulze, of Shelby, Texas, died on Friday, September 8, 2023 in Industry, Texas at the age of 98. Katy was born in Kikinda, Yugoslavia (now Serbia) on August 18, 1925 to Andreas and Magdalena (Kunst) Rebel who were descendants of ethnic Germans who had settled in the region several generations before. The Rebel family lost everything in World War II. In October 1944, as the communists took over Yugoslavia, the family fled for Hungary with only what they could carry. After traveling through Hungary via Budapest and then through Czechoslovakia, they arrived in Austria on October 16 where they stayed first with a farm family near Vienna. In April 1945 the family left for Salzburg. It was in Salzburg, while Katy was working for the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, that she met Melvin H. E. Schulze, a young American who spoke her native German but with a Texas German dialect that was strange to her. Katy and Melvin married in Salzburg on August 16,1947. After Melvin's discharge from the U. S. Army, the couple stayed in Salzburg for several months before sailing to the U. S. aboard the S. S. Willard A. Holbrook from Bremerhaven, Germany to New York City in November 1947. They made their way by bus and train to Fayetteville, Texas and then to Shelby where Katy and Melvin settled on the farm that was to be their home for the rest of their lives. Katy's parents joined them in Texas in 1950. Katy and Melvin operated a diversified farm for almost six decades, raising chickens, hogs and cattle and many different crops, along with a custom hay operation in later years. Katy was known for her well-crafted, and sometimes complicated, desserts which she made for community functions and family gatherings, the recipes for which she had brought from Europe. She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Shelby, American Legion Post 602 Auxiliary, Shelby Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary, and the Winedale German Singers. Katy was trilingual, having learned German and Serbian as a child and English as a young adult in Texas. She returned to Europe only once after the war, traveling to visit friends and relatives in the 1970s. A childhood friend settled in Chicago, and Katy kept in touch with her throughout their adult lives. Katy was preceded in death by two brothers, Georg, who was born in 1924 and died in infancy, and Joseph, who was born in 1927 and was killed in World War II, by her parents Andreas and Magdalena Rebel, father- and mother-in-law Herbert and Frieda Schulze, her husband Melvin Schulze, brother- and sister-in-law Burnie and Burdine Schulze, and sister- and brother-in-law Verline and Roy Schlabach. She is survived by nephews Michael Schlabach (Karla) of Brenham, Darrell Schulze (Diane Stott) of West Lafayette, IN, Roger Schulze (Evon) of Brenham, and Mark Schulze (Lisa) of Houston, and niece Sheryl Durfey (Dennis) of Smithville. Her family would like to express special thanks to all of the caregivers at Oak Haven Assisted Living for all of the wonderful care they provided. Funeral services for Katy will be held Thursday, September 14, 2023 at 10:00 am at St. Paul Lutheran Church of Shelby with Pastor John David Nedbalek officiating. Burial will follow in Shelby Cemetery. Serving as pallbearers will be Terry Rudloff, Charlie Schramm, Kenneth Hetzel, Jacob Hetzel, Zane Aschenbeck, and Ryan Aschenbeck. Honorary pallbearers are her nieces and nephews and the caring staff at Oak Haven Assisted Living. Memorial contributions may be directed to St. Paul Lutheran Church of Shelby. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Memorial Oaks Chapel, 1306 West Main St. , Brenham. To view Katy's page online and to post a tribute to her family, please visit www. memorialoakschapel. com.
