Marion E Schultz


Marion E. Schultz passed into eternal life early in the morning of December 14, 2009. She will join her beloved husband Russell who preceded her in death last year. They were married for 63 year and they are now united again. 

Marion leaves behind many friends and family, including Russell’s cousin Ralph Raphael, Jennie Gish, Dennis Gorney, and Jimmy Gorney.

Marion met Russell at their place of employment, Denoyer-Geppert in Chicago. Marion worked there as an account manager for 42 years. 

When they retired, Marion and Russell moved to Santa Paula, California in 1977. They loved their home and friends, and enjoyed a wonderful full life in the California weather.

Marion was not content to stay home, so she began work at Western Cable Service in Ventura part time to keep active. She made long time friends at this job and they will miss her dearly. 

In later years they moved to Orange Blossom Villa, where they continued to enjoyed life and each other. For the past few months Marion resided at the Palms in Ventura. We want to thank the staff for their caring and compassionate care.

Mass was celebrated at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 1048 Ventura (Hwy 126), Fillmore CA 93015, with a brief graveside ceremony at the Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery, 380 Cemetery Rd. (off of Santa Paula St.), Santa Paula, CA.

It is with great sadness we have lost a truly wonderful person. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends; her family was her life.
