June 15, 1929 - March 7, 2008

Marion Schultz (nee Rammer), 78, of 1212D Reed St., Plymouth, entered eternal life surrounded by the love of her family late Friday evening, March 7, 2008, at the Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice Center, Sheboygan Falls.

Marion was born on the Rammer Family Homestead in the town of Wilson on June 15, 1929, a daughter of the late Leonard and Cora Buschmann Rammer. She attended Erdmann Grade School and was a 1947 graduate of Sheboygan Central High School.

On Aug. 6, 1949, Marion married Wilbert "Bill" Schultz in Sheboygan. She has resided in Plymouth since 1951. Marion was a waitress for more than 37 years at Millerís Guest House, Plymouth, retiring from there in 1991. She also worked for the Plyco Corp., Elkhart Lake, from 1979 until her retirement in 1996.

She was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Plymouth, and was actively involved with the churchís Christian Women Society, serving many funeral dinners throughout the years. Marion was a Bluebird & Campfire Girlsí group leader for many years. Since her retirement, she volunteered at St. Vincent de Paul Store, Plymouth. She was also involved as a volunteer for other charitable organizations throughout her life.

By far, Marionís greatest joy was sharing time with her family, whether it be a holiday event, a birthday celebration, a basketball game or a special outing with her children. Being a good cook, gatherings with family and friends were often centered on her joy of preparing food. Other hobbies included gardening, playing cards, taking trips up north, attending senior gatherings with her Qui Qu Oc friends, supporting both her sonsí basketball coaching careers, which are currently at Carroll College and Sheboygan South High School.

Marion got great joy from the many hours she spent at her childrenís and grandchildrenís sporting events. She was an avid fan of Wisconsin sports.
