Orella Holz

February 2, 1925 — March 8, 2019


Orella M. Holz, 94, passed away on Friday, March 8, 2019 at Copperleaf Memory Care, in Schofield.

Orella was born in Merrill on February 2, 1925 to the late Anton and Mathilda (Woller) Schult. She married Edward Holz in Merrill on August 9, 1941. They were married 59 years before Edward preceded Orella in death on January 23, 2002.

Sewing clothing for her daughter Debra, gardening, and reading were some of the things that Orella truly enjoyed. But most important to her were her family and her faith. She loved her daughter and granddaughter, and she lovingly served her God, and was associated with the Rib Mountain Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses for many years. Orella will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived by her daughter, Debra Holz and her granddaughter, Dana Burcher. In addition to her parents and husband, Orella was preceded in death by her sister, Viola Weisman, and her brothers, Norman, Milton, Lawrence and Eldor Schult.

A memorial talk will be given at 7:00 pm on Monday, March 18, 2019 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 3900 Hummingbird Rd, Wausau. Todd Green will officiate. A graveside service will take place at Restlawn Memorial Park at a later date. Please go to to sign the family guestbook.
