Dorothy Schultz Lifestory

Dorothy E. Schultz, 82, of New Carlisle, passed away on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, at the Regional Medical Center in Springfield. She was born November 29, 1941, in Wellston, Ohio, daughter of the late Charles and Margaret (Loudermilk) Norris. A Christian by faith, Dorothy was very patient, forgiving, and one of the most welcoming individuals you’d ever meet. She was an avid reader, a great cook and baker who was known for her beef stroganoff, lasagna, and various candies and cookies, especially around the holidays. In her younger years, she enjoyed vegetable gardening and canning, but most of all she loved spending time with her kids and grandkids. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her son, Norris (Brianne) Schultz; daughters, Margaret Schultz (Daniel Crist), and Patricia Schultz; 13 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Russel William Schultz on November 3, 1977; as well as 8 brothers, and 5 sisters.

The family will receive friends on Monday, April 8, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the chapel of R.M. Williams Funeral Service, 120 W. Broadway St., Wellston. A graveside service in Ridgewood Cemetery will follow at 1 p.m., with her nephew, Walter “Bub” Norris, officiating.
