  1. Dorothy, We pray that you are at peace in eternity and will be with us at the hour of our death. We love you,

  2. Grandma, I pray that you are at peace now and enjoying life in heaven with Grandpa, Great-Grandma Schulte, Gary and Tammy. I will never forget my visits with you; going to church, making homemade apple pies and vanilla ice cream. You never could miss the Wheel of Fortune either. I love you lots. May God be you always. Love, Summer

  3. You enriched my life and those around me in so many ways. You were always loving, giving and caring to those around you. Whether it was sharing of food (the best!), of time or of yourself. Your legacy will live forever in the morals and lessons you have left in your children, grandchildren & great grandchildren and those that will come later. You will be greatly missed. Thank you for the gift of your son Lary, he is a remarkable husband and for Harry & Jerry. They are fine men to be proud of, this is your doing. May you rest in peace now.
