JOYBELL DIE SCHALK  (March 5, 1945 - September 10, 2015)

To quote Gainesville Daily Register's columnist Tom Kennedy from an
article he published in the paper Sunday, September 10, 2006: "There is
only 1 Joybell Schalk." On September 10, 2015, we had to say goodbye to
her. Mrs. Schalk succumbed to complications due to Multiple Myeloma
(cancer) early Thursday morning.

Joybell was born to Ray E. and Joy (Bell) Die March 5, 1945 in

and Mrs. Die were educators in GISD. Joybell transitioned well and
excelled in academics as well as extra-curricular activities. In 1958, the

making this group of Gainesville girls the first-ever junior high school drill
team in the state of Texas. In 1959, the new Gainesville High School was
opened making Joybell a member of the first freshman class. With the
new building came the formation of the White Wave drill team primarily
composed of those original Blue Blaze members. Mrs. Schalk was elected
Captain all four years of high school as the only White Wave member to
hold the spot four consecutive years. Active in choir with All-State
accolades and leads in the musicals, she also graduated as Valedictorian
of the Gainesville HS Class of 1963.

Mrs. Schalk attended TCU graduating in 1967 with a 4.0 GPA. She joined
the Pi Beta Phi sorority as a freshman and was president of the sorority
her junior and senior years. It was during this time she was introduced to
the man she would marry through her mother Joy Die. She married
Thomas E. Schalk on August 19, 1967 and had two children: Thomas Rey
(Trey) (1969) and Joyann (1974).

Mrs. Schalk loved teaching and helping others. She devoted thirty-five
years to educating many. She also managed and choreographed for the
White Wave and Blue Blazes drill teams. She was an active member of
Whaley United Methodist Church where she sang in the choir. She
volunteered in local organizations and was on the board for the GISD

Schalk of Gainesville, mother Joy Die of Lake Kiowa, son Trey with wife
Amy Schalk of Austin, daughter Joyann with husband Brad Cooke,

Ms. Die passed away September 21, 2018 in Gainesville.

Joy was born April 9th, 1926 in Nacogdoches, Texas.  Her primary school had no
kindergarten, so she began first grade at 5 years old.  An extremely bright child, she
advanced quickly and graduated from high school at 16 years old.  She was an only child
and chose to remain close to home as she attended college at Stephen F. Austin
University.  Her quest for knowledge and achievement was proven when she, a female in
the early 1940s, earned two master’s degrees simultaneously.  Even more extraordinary
were her chosen disciplines: math and art.  It was at college where she met her soulmate
Ray E. Die, and they were married May 8, 1942 before he deployed with the Marines to
fight in World War II.  After he returned, they welcomed their only child, Joybell, on
March 5, 1945.  Joy began teaching school in East Texas before moving to Gainesville in
(approximately) 1956 where she accepted a teaching position with Gainesville ISD.  She
was a respected and admired educator until her retirement in 1981, and she was inducted
into the GHS Education Hall of Fame in 2009.  In retirement, she was an avid golfer and
loved spending time and supporting her family.  Joy and Ray enjoyed life together until
his passing in 1996 (married 53 years).  She was an active member of Whaley United
Methodist Church and the Lake Kiowa Chapel Choir.

Survivors include son-in-law Tom Schalk of Gainesville; grandson Trey Schalk and wife
Amy of Gainesville; granddaughter Joyann Cooke and husband Brad of Highland Village;
and great-grandchildren Addelyn and Mackson Cooke.
