Jean grew up on the family farm and graduated from Tomahawk High School in 1947. She married the love of her life, Donald Schulz, on October 11, 1952, at First Presbyterian Church in Merrill. They shared fifty wonderful years together, forty-five in Irma and five in Tomahawk prior to his death in 2002.
Jean worked for Hufschmid Bros. in Tomahawk in her earlier years. Later on, she worked as a bookkeeper and secretary for Van Der Geest Livestock, Nicklaus Enterprises Inc., and part-time at Tomahawk Sports Center. In addition to this she was also the Town of Birch Treasurer for twenty-eight years. Jean enjoyed gardening, traveling with her late husband, and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.
Jean is survived by her daughters, Kathy Schulz, Cindy (Chuck) Medinger, and Judy (Chris Bonin) Schulz; grandchildren, Joelle Olson, Tana Evans, Stacy Maner, and Cole Brooks; nine great-grandchildren; sister, Rita Hilgendorf; and brother, William ‘Bill’ Kahle.
