Inez Uglum Schissel, 95, of Adams, died Monday, Sept. 21, at the Austin Medical Center.

Inez Gladys Uglum, daughter of Annie and Iver Uglum, was born on a farm near Grand Meadow on July 5, 1914. When she was six years old, her family moved to Adams, where Inez spent most of her life.

Inez graduated from Adams High School and also from Winona State University. She taught school for several years in the Austin Public Schools and also at Sacred Heart School in Adams. She thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of teaching and felt blessed to have selected the right vocation.

In 1939 Inez was united in marriage to Conrad Schissel at St. Augustine Church in Austin, with Father Griffin officiating. Three children were born to this union: Ann, Bob and Jean.

Inez had many interests including gardening, reading, golfing, traveling, oil painting, sewing, and cards, especially bridge. She was devoted to her husband, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and in-laws. She loved all of them.

She was a member of Sacred Heart Church, SHCCW, St. Agnes Unit, Adams Health Care Auxiliary, Austin Area Retired Teachers Organization, and the Cedar River Country Club.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Conrad; her son-in-law, Ron Lien; her parents; two brothers and five sisters.

She is survived by her children, Ann Lien of Rochester, Bob (Linda) Schissel of Park Rapids, Minn., and Jean (Ben) Norman of Ankeny, Iowa; her grandchildren, Beth Schissel, Kris (Patrick) Donnelly, Maren (Paul) Kunkel, Kara Norman (Tom Delaney), Alex Norman (Dorann Richtsmeier), Julie (Brian) O'Connell, Amy Lien (Erik Fritsche), and Jenny Lien (Pat Rothwell); and her great-grandchildren, Fiona and Nora Donnelly, Tara and Jack O'Connell, and Nolan Fritsche.

Friends and relatives are invited to the visitation to be held at the Adams Funeral Home on Thursday, Sept. 24, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., with a prayer service at 7 p.m. A memorial Mass will be celebrated on Friday, Sept. 25, at 11 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Adams, with Father James Seitz officiating. Interment will be at Sacred Heart Catholic Cemetery.
