Memorial: Fredericksburg Standard - Radio Post; 3 October 2012
This past week the sign outside of St. Mary’s School instructs us to “Love God/Service to Neighbors”. The moment I read it, I knew this was the legacy left by my dear friend, Marlene to her neighbors on Upper Liveoak Road. There are long histories of the early German settlers here on this short road, and part of that history is the exceptional neighborly associations and friendships that have existed over the years. My husband and I were the recipients of these friendships when we arrived almost 20 years ago. We settled across Live Oak Creek but still close to the old Arlt, now Fritz homestead. Marlene’s mother was our closest neighbor. After Appolonia Fritz’ death in the Fall of 1994, Marlene and Marvin moved into the main house. Marlene knew the neighbors well as she had been mostly raised in this area. My friendship with her developed. She and I were “earthly women”, that is we dug in the dirt; pulled things up; put things in the dirt; shared plants and seeds; talked of rain, sun, animals, and even farm equipment. Marlene was a good fence builder, could weld and build just about anything the men could do. She was always making something; jellies, jams, venison sausages; all kinds of baked goods and other “down-home” foods. She shared these with me and I was thankful because she helped me to return to my East Texas roots. Marlene remembered every elder’s birthday. She made birthday cakes, their favorite, for each of them. Her “special” chocolate cake quickly became my husband’s favorite. He received that cake every year that we lived here. Other elders: Mrs. Weirich (her second mother); Herman and Erna Heiner; Grace Schiller; Mrs. Stehling and so on, were recipients of her kindness and thoughtfulness. She was the first to be there when a neighbor was sick or had to go to the hospital. When my husband became more frail, Marvin and Marlene were called many times, at any hour of the day or night, to help pick him up after a fall. They helped to get him off to the hospital many a time. Marlene usually stayed with me until things were stable. She sat and held his hand almost as much as I did. Marlene never made a distinction between those she had known for a lifetime and those known only for a few months. To her, a neighbor was a neighbor, and that was that! And, she made no distinction between the kind of help that she thought a neighbor needed. If a house needed to be cleaned, she cleaned it; if clothes needed to be washed, dinner cooked, Marlene did it! My friend had great energy and she usually did not let anything get her down. It has been so sad to see her go down these last 20 or so months. The cancer - that dreaded disease - began to overcome her body, but not her mind. She fought with everything she had and tried to carry on with daily life. In many ways she did beat it, for it never overtook her mental capacity to think and carry out her “plans” for her next life. The Mass of the Resurrection was held on Sept. 16, 2012 at St. Mary’s. Father McKenna conducted a most beautiful and inspirational service. Some of our grief was lessened with Father’s words. So uplifting and promising, the words held aloft Marlene’s true spirit of her life here on earth. I was reminded as the service progressed of an old saying, “The spirit of the dead will live on in the memory of the living”. Marlene, we will remember your spirit because you had that special gift - a gift that brought hope and promise to others in their daily lives. You carried out your “service to neighbors” exceptionally well. You did well my dear friend.

Gil was born on Nov. 24, 1911, in Beaumont, Texas. His business career was in banking and finance, primarily in San Antonio, Texas, but his love was music. During World War II, Gil served in the U.S. Navy and helped organize the USO band in San Diego. After the war, he played in several orchestras, traveling around during the Big Band Era. At an engagement in San Antonio, the band was playing when he met and fell in love with Mildred (Kotsie) Smith of Fredericksburg. Kotsie was a "torch singer" with another band. Gil and Kotsie were married on Sept. 30, 1935. They joined the very popular Mack Rogers band, and their "honeymoon" was spent with the other nine men as the band toured the country. When they decided to have a family, they settled in San Antonio. They formed the Kotsie Keith Orchestra, which played at San Antonio functions for several decades and was the Cavaliers band of choice. The Kotsie Keith Orchestra was the first to bring live music to the San Antonio River Parade. They also brought much humor to it with their themes. Kotsie passed away at age 87 in 1999. Gil loved baseball and became the president of the Alamo Heights Little League. It was during this stint that he met Al Campanas, the head scout and later Senior Vice President of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Their friendship resulted in Gil becoming a part-time scout for the Dodgers. Gil brought Al to San Antonio to scout David Johnson, who ended up signing with the Cardinals. Davy went on to become Manager of the New York Mets. Gil and Kotsie had two sons. Gil, who preceded him in death, lived in San Francisco and worked in the travel business.

Gil moved to Corpus Christi to be near Mike and Betsy, granddaughter Kim Hatridge, husband Paul, and great-grandchildren, Taylor, Tanner, and Grace. In 2003, Gil moved to Fredericksburg. Grandson Larry, and wife, Amy, of Houston, brought him a fourth great-grandchild, Lucy Claire, in 2006. Throughout Gil's life, from youthful adventures at the family ranch, Round Lake, his military years, banking, long musical career, and the years of "BoBo" to the grandchildren and great grandchildren, Gil was known for his elegance of dress, his sharp questioning mind, but most of all, for his non-stop humor. Gil will be missed by family and many friends. [Fredericksburg Standard - Radio Post; 20 Feb 2008; transcribed by Jimmy Davis]
