Mildred "Millie" E. Schultz was born on March 14, 1929 in Trenton, the daughter of the late Julius and Emma Kovalaske. She lived on a farm while growing up and enjoyed riding her horse, Jerry. Millie graduated from Waupun High School in 1946 and worked at the Ideal Shoe Factory in Waupun. On April 14, 1948, she married her hometown sweetheart, Harold Schultz. This past April would have been their 60th wedding anniversary. Millie and Harold moved to Grafton in 1957, and they lived there most of their lives. They were blessed with five beautiful children and 11 grandchildren.

Millie worked as an assembler at Tecumseh Products in Grafton for 22 years. She enjoyed needlepoint, fishing at Fox Lake, polka dancing, bowling, playing "fishing" slot machines at the casinos, and spoiling her children and grandchildren.

Millie was a kind, caring, gentle, beautiful woman and friend who always put others first, and we will miss her dearly.

Millie is survived by her loving children Nancy (Mike) Janasiak of Saukville, Karen (Keith) Jones of Grafton, Sue (Steve) Hubing of Belgium and Sandy (David) Hackbarth of Grafton; the proud grandma of Scott Schultz of West Bend, Tim Schultz of the U.S. Navy, Nick (Shoua) Janasiak of West Bend, Melissa (Karl) Peterson of Menomonee Falls, Kory, Kristopher and Kyle Jones of Grafton, Kelly Hubing of Belgium, Tanya Riebe of Grafton, and Kala and Bryce Hackbarth of Grafton. She is further survived by nieces, nephews and friends.

Millie was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Harold G. Schultz; and her son, Wayne H. Schultz.
