Dorothy Schulz, 77, of Plainview, was called home into her Heavenly Father's arms on Thursday afternoon. She passed away unexpectedly at her home.

Dorothy Helen Schreiber was born on May 5, 1939, in Winona County, to Norman and Thelma (Fabian) Schreiber. She attended elementary school in rural St. Charles schools and graduated from Plainview High School in 1957. On May 4, 1958, Dorothy married Duane A. Schulz in Plainview. The Schulz's farmed in Plainview all their lives. Dorothy was Duane's Right Hand all of their married life.

She supported all of the organizations that Duane was active in. Dorothy's hobbies included volunteering at Immanuel Lutheran Church; she baked all the pies for the Schreiber Christmases; her specialty was old-fashioned graham cracker pie. She loved family gatherings, especially those that included her children and grandchildren. Nothing made Dorothy happier than driving the tractor or being on the lawn mower. She loved to entertain for dinner and a good card game. She was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Plainview.

Dorothy is survived by her husband, Duane, of Plainview; her daughter, Connie (Bob) Walkes, of Plainview; her son, Steve (Jodi) Schulz, of Plainview; one sister, Deloris (Roy) Smith, of Plainview; three brothers, Merle (Jean) Schreiber, Merlin (Marian) Schreiber and Carl (June) Schreiber, all of Plainview; five grandchildren, Cole (Holly) Schulz, Cassandra (Dan) Byler, Kalli (Cam) Miller, Kyle (Gale Worthman) Schulz, Kasey Schulz; and one great-grandchild is expected to arrive in November.
