Kathleen “Kathy” Schultz, 72, of Wausau, met her husband Karl in Heaven on March 2, 2022.
Kathy was born December 29, 1949, in Wausau, Wisconsin to the late Leonard and Marjorie (Kazmier) Kramer. She double majored and graduated from UW LaCrosse with degrees in Biology and Physical Education. She was the first female heavy equipment operator at the City of Wausau. Later in life, Kathleen returned to school and received her nursing degree. She worked as a registered nurse in Palliative Care at Aspirus Wausau Hospital until she retired. She was also a member of the Mensa Society. Kathy loved doing anything outdoors- from fishing and hunting to just a nice stroll outside. She also loved riding her Harley with her husband, Karl. She had a sharp wit and a wonderful sense of humor. How lucky we are to have had something that makes saying goodbye so hard. We love you.
Kathleen is survived by her brother Peter Kramer; nieces Anna Kramer and Cindy Kreger; nephew Christopher Klug; great-niece Haley Kreger (fiancé Eli Fenwick); and great-great-nephew Huxley Stichman. She is preceded in death by her parents; husband Karl Schultz; and sister Karen Klug.
According to Kathy’s wishes, there will be a small catholic service at Restlawn Memorial Park on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, at 10:30 am.
We wish to thank, with deep gratitude, Kathy’s friend, Kelly Chesmore Gajewski for her care, compassion, and friendship to Kathy during her final years.
