1938-2011

Donald Louis Carl Schraub, 72, of Seguin, Texas, passed away Monday, Aug. 22, 2011. Donald was born to Harry and Annie Koepp Schraub on Nov. 18, 1938, in La Vernia.

He graduated from La Vernia High School as valedictorian of his class. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas and his master’s degree from Southwest Texas State (now Texas State University).

As a young man, Donald began his working career with a paper route on a bicycle and later graduated to a motorcycle. He worked in education for numerous years, starting out as a teacher, and later as a counselor. Following this, he became a beer distributor for both Pearl and Miller products.

Donald proudly served as Guadalupe County Judge from 2002 to 2006. He was a member of the Christ Lutheran Church of Elm Creek and an associate member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Marion. He was a 50-year Mason with the Brahan Masonic Lodge No. 226 A.F. & A.M. in La Vernia, the Order of the Sons of Hermann, and a former member of the Seguin Noon Lions Club.

Donald and his wife, Gloria, traveled throughout the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Donald loved adventure and sailed a boat called “The Journey” through the Caribbean. He loved hunting and outdoor sports. He lived life to the fullest and enjoyed serving in his community.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Harry Schraub Jr.; sister-in-law Inez Schraub; and niece Terry Schraub.

Survivors include his loving wife of 25 years, Gloria Mikolajczyk Schraub; son Donald “D. L.” Schraub Jr. and wife Lisa; daughter Shannon Turkewitz and husband Joel; stepsons Dustin Erwin and fiancée Kristy Johnson, and Chad Erwin and wife Kristalle; sister Vernell Richter and husband Paul; grandchildren Cecelia and Sebastian Turkewitz; stepgrandchildren Jay, Kendall, and Kasey Repka and Kearsen, Tak, and Kahlan Erwin; his beloved dog, Gus; numerous nieces, nephews, sisters-in-law, and brothers-in-law; and numerous other family and friends.

A memorial service celebrating Donald’s life was held Friday, Aug. 26, at 3 p.m. in the Christ Lutheran Church of Elm Creek in Seguin, with Pastor Anne Kolmeier and Pastor James “Jim” Witschorke officiating.

A private interment will be held at a later date in the Christ Lutheran of Elm Creek Cemetery in Seguin.

Memorial donations may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
