Dolores Schueller, 90, Edgar, passed away peacefully at home with family at her side on Saturday, Dec. 28, 2019.
She was born April 8, 1929, in the town of Cassel, daughter of the late Martin and Helen (Rodman) Skrzypcak. On Oct. 6, 1948, she married George Schueller at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, town of Cassel. George was the love of her life. Their devotion to each other was the true meaning of love, “until death do us part,” for 65 years. It brings her family peace to know they are together again, and she has no more pain.
Dolores was a homemaker, providing food and care for her family for many years, and yet she was so much more. As a devoted mother of 13 children, she instilled in them respect, honesty and her belief in God. She loved making homemade bread, a memory her family will always cherish. Dolores was so proud of each of her children and loved them endlessly. She endured so much in her life but was so strong both inside and out. In her later years, Dolores enjoyed reading the daily newspaper, watching EWTN and Jeopardy. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother. She will be forever loved and missed.
