Community mourns an icon

CULVER - The school crossing at Lake Shore Drive and School Street won't be the same without the dedication of Eunice Agnes Schrimsher who kept Culver's children safe for more than 40 years.

Eunice died Sunday, Feb. 27 at her home surrounded by her family after a battle with cancer.

According to Police Chief Wayne Bean, she had been employed by the Culver Police Department since about 1964. She began as a matron, helping with female arrests and became a crossing guard for Culver schools. 

"Kids meant a lot to her. She knew most of them on a first-name basis. She fixed hats and wiped noses. Sometimes she would see report cards before the parents did," said Bean.- - Public relations were also part of her duties. She helped with giving talks to high school children before prom and fingerprinted preschool children during tours of the department, helping them to understand the "good" side of the department.

Staying involved with the community, Eunice would ride around with Bean handing out candy to trick-or-treaters and passed out candy canes on the last day of school before Christmas break.

"She was an icon to the community for a long time. There's not one thing that can describe her. She was vibrant. She was full of life. I can't find anyone to replace her. Those are big shoes to fill," said Bean. 
A 1949 graduate of Culver High School, Eunice and Glen E. Schrimsher were married May 28, 1955. They have two sons Glen (Greta) and Scott (Dee) Schrimsher of Culver and a daughter Cheryl  Schrimsher (Alfred Nyby) of Culver. Their grandchildren are Chase, Chelsea, Nick (Jill), Alyssa, Jordan, and Trayden.  

Services were Friday at Culver Elementary School gymnasium with Father Jeff Largent officiating.
