Myrtle Ella (Dobratz) Schulz, 92, of Hustisford passed away peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 in her home.
Myrtle (Myrt) was born May 10, 1925 in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, daughter of the late William and Ella (Frederick) Dobratz. Myrt was a graduate of Wauwatosa High School, class of 1944. Myrt married Ralph Schulz of Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 1, 1950 at Zoar Evangelical Lutheran Church in Milwaukee.
In 1954, Ralph and Myrt moved to the Hustisford area where they spent the better part of a decade operating their dairy farm. In 1963, they relocated to the village of Hustisford where they spent the remainder of their working years. Throughout her lifetime, Myrt provided in home day care services for 80+ little ones, giving each child the same care she gave to her own. Myrt loved children and children loved her. She was not great-grandmother or great-grandma. She was simply called “Great.” Which she was.
Myrt’s pastimes included dancing, playing games with her family, and she was involved with various card groups throughout the years. She donated countless hours to various charities that were close to her heart. Myrt and her husband also enjoyed traveling. They visited every state in the United States except Alaska.
Myrt is survived by her children: Robert Schulz, Donald Schulz, Carol Schulz, all of Hustisford; David (Jane) Schulz of Cedarburg, James Schulz of Concord and Daniel (Anne) Weber-Schulz of Shorewood; 11 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Myrt was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Ralph, her oldest grandchild, Shawn Schulz and her brothers William and Carl Dobratz.
Funeral Services will be held on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at Bethany Ev. Lutheran Church, 269 N. Lake Street, Hustisford, with Rev. Jon Loescher officiating. Burial will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 3rd at Hustisford City Cemetery. Family and friends may gather at the church on Tuesday from 2:00 p.m. until the time of the service. Hafemeister Funeral Home and Cremation Service of Watertown is serving the family.
