Obituary: Shigeko Frisch

We celebrate the home-going of Shigeko Frisch, who completed her earthly journey on Wednesday, Feb. 25. Shigeko was a beautiful Christian lady who always faced life with her gentle presence and a smile that was contagious.

Shigeko, the second of eight children, was born in Sonobe, Hiroshima, Japan on Nov. 25, 1930. At the age of 12, she helped her father raise her six younger brothers and sisters when her mother died from heart disease.

Shigeko is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Frankie; stepson, Royce; her parents; and four siblings.

Shigeko is survived by her Christian sisters and brothers at Praise Chapel of Dolan Springs. She was not only a charter member of her church, but very active in the Ladies Ministries, Bible study and regular church attendance.

Shigeko and Frankie traveled extensively before moving to Dolan Springs in 1992. Besides traveling, Shigeko loved to play bingo, enjoyed shopping and being with her many friends.

You are invited to join us at 1 p.m. for a celebration of her life at the Praise Chapel Church in Dolan Springs on Saturday, March 14. The church is located at 16949 N. Lariat Road at 15th Street.

In lieu of flowers, Shigeko would want contributions dedicated to the 2015 Fall Ladies Retreat that will be taking place in October.
