Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church.
Dora Schultz entered her Heavenly home on Nov. 8, 2019.
Dora June Willard was born March 11, 1932, to Porter and Leona (Smiley) Willard, in Tracy. She attended school in Marshall, graduating with the high school class of 1950. Dora was later baptized and confirmed as an adult at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Marshall.
On May 20, 1951, Dora was united in marriage to Donald Schultz in Marshall. They made their home in Lynd and then south of Marshall on the family farm. Dora was a loving wife, homemaker, and mother to their six children.
Dora was a proud member of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Marshall, where she helped with altar care and communion care, taught Sunday School, was a leader for the Girl Pioneers, and was active in Missions. She enjoyed the ladies’ Neighborhood Card Club meetings. Her other enjoyments in life included reading, embroidery, watching “Wheel of Fortune,” cooking, and spending time with her family – especially babysitting her grandchildren. She loved to teach the next generation how to make doughnuts from scratch and was very proud of her large family and the festive get-togethers for the holidays.
Blessed be her memory.
She is survived by her husband of 68 years, Donald Schultz of Marshall; six children, Marlys (and Wayne) Skaar of Minneota, Marlin (and Jody) Schultz of Morgan, Wally Schultz of Tracy, Wendy (and Gary) St. Aubin of Marshall, Laurie (and Bruce) McVey of Marshall, Lonny (and Kathy) Schultz of Marshall; 21 grandchildren, Oona (and Jared) Olson, Lisa (and Jon) Fadness, Wade Skaar, Christian Schultz, Brita (and Kyle) Lage, Lindsay Schultz, Nathan Schultz, Kelly Schultz, Cole Schultz, Tahsa Schultz, MacKenzie (and Jade) Swank, Brandi (and Chris) Lahn, Melissa (and Chad) Nissen, Courtney (and Ben) Blomme, Thane Hemish, Andy Hemish, Trevor Hemish, Adam McVey, Trisha (and Jordan) Phillips, Derek Schultz, Brock Schultz; 16 great-grandchildren; brother, Dale (and Angie) Willard of Tracy; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
