Cora M. Schultz

Cora M. (Fandrey) Schultz, 92, Gillett, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, March 20, 2019.

 

She was born in Town of Hutchins, WI on June 19, 1926, a daughter of the late William R. and Emma (Kielman) Fandrey.  Cora married Marvin C. Schultz on September 22, 1951 at St. Paulus Church in the Town of Almon and together they raised one daughter, Jane.

 

The family made their home in Gillett and Cora worked at the Canning Factory during the summer for many years.  She was a longtime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and was active in many ministries including the Ladies Aide and the church’s annual bazaar. Cora loved flower gardening and looked forward to planting flowers each year.

 

Cora faithfully read her prayer books.  She loved listening to “her polkas” and will fondly be remembered for riding her bicycle around town for many years.  A spiritual and loving woman, an amazing mother and grandmother, Cora’s greatest joy was her family and spending time with loved ones.  She will be sadly missed.

 

Cora leaves her daughter, Jane (Randy) Bigelow, her grandchildren: Debbie Bigelow (Nate) and Robert Bigelow; her great-grandchildren: Kyle Mikula (Brandi), Breanna Mikula (Dylan), Ayden, Leah and Fisher and her great-great-grandchild, Emerson.  She also leaves many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.

 

Cora was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband Marvin on March 8, 1993, her siblings: Ada (Al) Umland, Emmaline (Ed) Kuehn, Derwin (Helen), Norman (Caroline), Donald (Bernice) and an infant brother Arnold Fandrey.
