-- — Glorian R. Koors, 78, Batesville, died Sunday, July 29, 2012, at The Waters of Batesville.
Born Nov. 28, 1933, in Batesville, she was the daughter of Felicia (Ferkinhoff) and Randolph Firsich. She married James Koors Dec. 29, 1954, at St. Louis Catholic Church.
Glorian was a homemaker and member of St. Louis Catholic Church, Prell-Bland American Legion Post 271 Ladies Auxiliary and Batesville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3183 Ladies Auxiliary.
Her family indicated that Mom was an excellent cook and baker. While everything she made was delicious, they said her pies were the best you could find anywhere. Along with Jim, she was active with Legion functions, but quiet time was spent on her porch swing or crocheting.
She liked watching “Jeopardy” and, although her family teased her, she also had a couple of soaps she enjoyed. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren, and she definitely loved having them around.
Glorian is survived by her husband; daughter Tress Zielinski, Batesville; sons Andy, Batesville, and Tony, Indianapolis; sister Iris Huneke, Greensburg; brother Jim Firsich, Greensburg; six grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her daughter, Tammy Koors; and sister Mim Kerker.
Visitation is Wednesday, Aug. 1, from 5-7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at St. Louis Catholic Church with the Rev. Randy Summers officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
The family requests memorials to Hospice of Margaret Mary Community Hospital or Prell-Bland American Legion.
