Gertrude Vernettie Lewis Schieving Muecke
Gertrude passed away peacefully on June 26, 2019, surrounded by her children. Born in
Kamas, Utah, on April 14, 1934, to Daniel Denis Lewis and Harriet Vernettie Williams;
she was the 7 th of 9 children. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother,
sister, aunt and friend to all. She married Jacobus Johannes Schieving on June 22,
1956, in the Salt Lake Temple. He preceded her in death. She later married Karl Paul

children. Sassy and un-flappable, she was friendly yet frank and often remined people
of her status: “I’m not tired, just retired.” Quick with a quip, “Whatever,” was her favorite
pastime phrase. She loved people at every station. She was a consummate quilter,
crafter, needle point creator, and sewer; and, she blessed the lives of countless people
with her creations throughout her lifetime. She was an inaugural member of the Salt
Lake Symphonic Choir and active for many years. She also played in a local bell choir
and enjoyed music her entire life. Survived by children Marion (Paul) Jensen, David
