Dorothy Jean Schultz, of Wausau, passed away surrounded by her family at Benedictine Living Community on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, at the age of 81.
Dorothy was born on September 1, 1938 to the late Harmon and Cora Cline in Polar, Wisconsin. In her younger years, Dorothy liked to go to dances. She graduated from Antigo High School in 1956. She worked for Employer’s Insurance until 1966, when she found her calling as an exemplary homemaker and mother to her two children, Gordon and Kim.
She was most recently a Deli Clerk at Pick ‘N Save and County Market grocery stores. Though her love of cooking and baking was always evident, the love she had for her family shined like a bright light as a devoted mother and grandmother. Her selfless personality and giving way of life allowed her to always be present in the lives of her family; always putting them first. She, along with her green thumb, will be deeply missed.
She leaves behind two children, Gordon (fiancé, Kristin Verhulst) Schultz of Weston, and Kim (Donald) Uttech of Wausau; two grandsons, Kyle Uttech and Brandon Uttech; siblings, Len (Eileen) Cline, Harold (Sharon) Cline, Lyman (Rose) Cline, and Shirley (Robert) Geier.
Funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at Brainard Funeral Home – Wausau Chapel, 522 Adams Street, Wausau. Rev. Zach Holdorf of Trinity Lutheran Church in Wausau will officiate. Visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m. until the time of the service at the funeral. Entombment will follow at Restlawn Memorial Park Mausoleum, Town of Texas.
