7/6/1927 – 2/20/2015

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y. and died peacefully in Omaha with family at her side. A devoted wife, loving mother and doting G’ma, she lived a life full of grace, humility and integrity. A full-time homemaker and mom, she was also a lifelong volunteer in her Church, community and children’s schools. Mom was an intrepid traveler, exploring all the continents with her childhood sweetheart and husband, Joe, until his death (2007) after 57 years of marriage. A rabid Cornhusker fan, she also took delight in Big Band music, gardening and her grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her beloved, Joseph P. Gilmore, and sisters, Marion Gilmore and Jeanette Hamblin. She is survived by children, Cathy Dietz (John), JoAnne Grove (Tom), Dennis Gilmore (Nancy), Gerry Gilmore (Cathy). G’ma is also survived by grandchildren, Robert, Joseph and Maggie Dietz; Mike, Nick and Beth Grove; Claire and John Gilmore; Brooke and Danny Gilmore; and great-grandchildren Isabel and Tristan.

A MEMORIAL SERVICE will be held at New Cassel Chapel, 900 N. 90th St. on Saturday, March 28 at 1:00pm with refreshments after. Mom loved red. In lieu of flowers, memorials are directed to the Joseph and Harriet Distinguished Investigator Award Fund, 2285 S. 67th St, Suite 200, Omaha, NE 68106.
