Monroe Township - THEA (née Eisinger) SCHRIMMER passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 22, 2020, she was 94 years old.
Thea was born on April 5th, 1926, to Abraham & Dora (née Wachtel) Eisinger, in Plauen, a small town in east central Germany (Saxony), and shortly after, her family relocated to Berlin where she lived in her early years. In 1938, the Eisinger's immigrated to the United States of America. Thea attended High School in an effort to continue her education going on to attend Hunter College.
In 1947 Thea would meet and marry her loving husband of 72 years, William (Bill) Schrimmer and from there begin to build their future together. Thea worked initially as a diamond cutter and then secretary going on to be a cherished, doting and devoted wife and mother concentrating on raising her own family. Thea and Bill spent their early years initially living in Manhattan, moving to Forest Hills and then moving on to Kew Gardens Hills until they watched their children go on to start their own lives. In 1993, Thea and Bill relocated to Monroe Township, some 27 years ago, to live out their lives together and watch their family proudly grow to consist of six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Thea was predeceased by her sister, Vera (née Eisinger) Rotenberg.

I would like to express my condolences to the Schrimmer family. Thea and Bill were friends of my parents Erica and George Rosenbaum, and my aunt and uncle Dagmar and Henry Rosenbaum. Bruce and Robin were playmates of mine when I was growing up in Forest Hills. Unfortunately, we lost touch along the way; but I still remember Thea, and her family, fondly.
May her memory be a blessing.

Dear Bill, Bruce, and Robin-- I have very fond memories of a childhood that included Thea. I have posted photos of Thea from both my own wedding and that of my parents.
Memories of Thea
Aunt Thea was my favorite Aunt. I can still hear her infectious laugh. She had the most beautiful eyes and the smoothest skin. Although I have not seen her often over the last 30 years, she will always be in my heart.
Remembering my favorite Aunt. I can still hear her infectious laugh and happy face.
A warm loving woman who cherished her family above all else. She leaves a beautiful legacy behind to carry on her traditions and Love. May she Rest In Peace
