Eula Josphine “Judy” Schultz, 84, of Sandusky, departed this world for the next Wednesday, July 30, 2008, due to complications resulting from a stroke.
Mrs. Schultz was born Sept. 2, 1923, in Ewing, Neb., to Mildred and Frank Morris. She took her primary education at the Girls’ Industrial Institute of Sheridan Wyo., followed by several years of correspondence study with the University of Wyoming. In 1944, the then Ms. Morris enlisted with the U.S. Navy’s “Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service”, or WAVES. She was honorably discharged with the rank of Seaman First Class after having served in Washington D.C., the Bronx, N.Y., and Stillwater, Okla.
In 1945, she married Douglas Earl Schultz, of Port Clinton, who preceded her in death. Their loving union produced two children, Francine Gregory, deceased, and Charlene Meyer. Mrs. Schultz was baptized at Sandusky’s Calvary Temple, July 30, 1978. The family has lived in northern Ohio for the past 60 years.
Mrs. Schultz served as a security guard at Erie Army Depot and then later as the secretary at Fitzgerald Electric, in addition to her full-time occupation of mother and homemaker. Throughout the years, she enjoyed ballroom dancing with her husband, crossword puzzles, reading scripture and raising her beloved dog, Lola, and several cats.
At the time of her death, Mrs. Schultz was lovingly surrounded by her daughter, Charlene Meyer of Castalia; granddaughter, Amy Rothgeb of North Carolina; and great-grandchildren, Chad Rothgeb of Norwalk, Angela Rothgeb of Plymouth, Ohio, and Ashley Swain of Sandusky. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Stephanie Meyer of Crawfordville, Fla., and Steven (Sarah) Meyer; great-grandchild, Anderson Meyer of Bay Village, Ohio; great-great-grandchildren, Reese and Alexis Rothgeb; brothers, Patrick Beckley of Tensleep, Wyo., and Jack Morris of Seattle; and sister, Margaret Stevens.
Welcoming Mrs. Schultz into the next world, in addition to her husband Douglas and daughter Francine, is her sister, Jennie Rose Kerr; and brother, Frank Morris.
Should friends desire to offer remembrances, the family requests they be in the form of contributions to Erie County Dog Pound, 2900 Columbus Ave., Sandusky, OH 44870. The dog pound was so gracious in helping Mrs. Schultz find homes for her pets when she was no longer able to care for them.
Groff Funeral Home, Sandusky, is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be shared at grofffuneralhomes.com.
