Mary A. Schulz, 79, of Sun City, Arizona, went to be with her lord on Friday, Nov. 17, 2017.

Mary was born to Victor and Helen Wedekind in Baraboo on June 25, 1937. She married Glen Schulz on June 4, 1958.

Mary was blessed with a son, Douglas (Sharon), and a daughter, Deanna. Two grandchildren, Sarah and Matthew, brought much joy to her life. One of eight children, Mary is survived by two brothers and two sisters and she treasured the fun times they shared as a family. Her extended family included several hundred children whose lives she touched as a teacher for more than 30 years. She was a member of American Lutheran Church of Sun City for 21 years and of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Baraboo for nearly 30 years and is so grateful for the outpouring of love and support from her faith community during these years and especially during the time of her illness.

A celebration of life and memorial service will be conducted at a later date. Condolences and words of comfort may be shared at menkefuneralhome.com.

Menke Funeral & Cremation Center of Sun City, Arizona is assisting the family.
