Annette Schultz

Annette M. Schultz, 79, of Vulcan, Michigan, died on June 1, 2021 at home. Born on Jan. 20, 1942, in Chicago, to the late Louis and Rita (Wollacheid) Schultz, she grew up in Chicago and was a graduate of St. Josephat High School in Chicago. She worked as a secretary in Chicago, retiring in August of 1990. Following retirement, she moved to Vulcan, Michigan. She refused to drive in Chicago, so she didn’t receive her driver’s license until the age of 48 when she moved to Vulcan.

She enjoyed teaching her grandchildren arts and crafts, going to her grandson’s hockey games, watching the Chicago Black Hawks and the Minnesota Vikings, going fishing and boating, and attending garage sales. She loved the color purple, which fit her well, and going on long walks by the lake with her grandchildren and teaching them to fish.

Survivors include one son, John (Susie) Schultz, of Oak Park; one brother, Louis Schultz Jr.; two grandchildren, Michael and Kate Schultz; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by the love of her life, Big John Hoglin, who died in 1992, and two brothers, Paul and Tom Schultz.

In accordance with her wishes, private family services will be held.
