Georjean Schueler

AHOY!! (Her favorite expression until the end)

Georjean Schubert Schueler, a longtime resident of Tierra Verde, FL passed away on September 26th, 2020, to be with God and deceased love ones at 6:05 A.M.

Georjean was born in Chicago, IL on August 4, 1924 to George and Mabel Schubert. She graduated from Miami University (Oxford, OH) in1946, with a B.A. in Dietetics. She met her husband, while taking a cost accounting course at Northwestern University. She married Robert J. Schueler, a World War II Navy Veteran, on October 22, 1949. Some of their fondest memories are of the early years at the University of Illinois, where they lived in Veterans housing with a coal burning pot belly stove, while Bob attended school. Many of their lifelong friendships began at the U of I.

In 1952, Georjean and Bob opened their own branch of Jolly Fun House Playschools, originally founded by Mabel Schubert in 1942, an early pioneer in preschool education, by taking Mabel’s overflow children. Georjean and Bob were also innovative, entrepreneurs in the field of pre-school education and expanded their business over the years. Georjean was an exceptional Director of their schools, providing daily nutritious well-balanced meals and incorporating advanced educational programs to stimulate the minds of young children. Georjean was a great wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.

She is survived by her husband, Robert Joseph; her daughter Cheryl Falbo (husband Bob); her daughter Lauren Selmeier (husband Richard); her daughter Georgia Bowie (husband Bob); her granddaughters…Britt Possley (husband Mike), Terri Newell (husband Casey), Shannon Persha (husband Adam) and Matthew Bowie (wife Rita). Great grandchildren…Aidan & McKenna Possley, Beckett, Avery & Cora Newell and Wynter & Cason Persha.

Sailing was a passion interwoven throughout Georjean’s life! She was an exceptional, fearless sailing partner, sharing in the navigation; cooking amazing meals below deck… even in the most challenging sea conditions. In the early days, she and Bob cruised on Lake Michigan, on their 32’ sloop, Onward III. Then, began the next chapter in their life, with an exciting, treacherous, adventure down the Mississippi River to Tierra Verde, FL. In their pre-retirement years and beyond, Georjean and Bob cruised on their 37 ft. cutter sailboat, Mesmeriah, throughout Florida and the Bahamas.

Georjean genuinely loved her family and enduring friendships, with a long legacy of family gatherings, often with music.

Her burial service, with immediate family, is scheduled, at the Sarasota National Cemetery on October 22nd, their 71st wedding anniversary. Georjean was very loved and will be missed by everyone, who knew her.

    What a beautiful memorial that all can share. For those who knew her, we are blessed to have her in our life. She was love personified. We will miss her present.

  • Laura I Taylor says:

    What I remember most about Aunt Georjean was her beauty. But my definition of beauty goes beyond the glamour. It was not the fancy hair, jewelry, or fine clothes that made her beautiful, but the inner beauty of her wisdom, radiant smile, warmth, and soulful spirit. That beauty will never disappear, its eternal and it will forever be in my heart. I will miss you Aunt Georjean. Laura
