Nature 35

Florence Schick

February 25, 1937 ~ March 27, 2021 (age 84)


Florence E. Schick “Flossie” of West Chester

Florence E. Schick, 84 of West Chester, PA passed away peacefully, Saturday March 27, 2021 at her daughter’s home, after a painful battle with lymphoma.

She was the wife of Leo B. Schick, the love of her life, whom she met at a picnic just after her Sacred Heart Academy High School graduation in 1956.  The two were inseparable from that point on - for nearly 65 years.

Born February 25, 1937 in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late Russell E. Rebman and the late Ann Quino Rebman. Flossie frequently traveled back to Lancaster, and she had attended reunions with her life-long friends from school.

Flossie was a member of SS. Simon & Jude Church. Her strong faith in God and hope for eternal life in Heaven carried her through to her last day on Earth. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She had a deep love for her 9 grandchildren, often giving of her time and taking care of them. She was their biggest fan.  From sporting and music to school events, she was always there to support them. She even provided daycare for some of them for over 17 years, and she had a special place in her heart for all of her grand-doggies as well.

Flossie was always ready with a smile or a laugh to stop and chat. She didn’t have to know the person, but if she knew they were a family friend, she automatically counted them as one of her own.  

She appreciated the simple things in life like Easter lilies, going for walks, and gardening - often commenting on the beautiful scent of the lilacs, tomatoes and rosemary growing in the yard.

In addition to her husband, Flossie is survived by her children: Joseph Schick, and his husband Michael Williamson, Elizabeth Gill, and her husband David, Molly Wadyko, and her husband Tony; grandchildren: Michael, Leila, Ann (Nick), Thea, Joe, Kayla, Adam, Paul, Nina; great grandson, Nathaniel, and daughter-in-law, Frances Schick.

Flossie was preceded in death by her son, Patrick Schick, leaving a hole in her heart she never could heal. She is surely holding him in her arms again now.

Funeral Mass and Interment will be private.

For anyone moved to remembrance, a gift to your favorite charity in her name or a prayer service/mass would be wonderful.
