Cindy Schultz-Munson

Cindy Schultz-Munson, 58, of Belleville, WI passed away on Saturday June 7, 2014 at the UW Hospital in Madison.

Cindy was the first daughter of Clinton and Joan (Mohr) Rux on January 13, 1956 in Beaver Dam. As Cindy grew up in Beaver Dam, she was baptized, attended grade school, confirmed, and later married at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church. Cindy loved to spend time doing anything but chores and always seemed to find creative ways to get her sisters to do them. In her teens, Cindy’s love of dogs was sparked with her first pet, Holly. They shared such a bond that when Cindy came home from school, Holly would pee-pee on the floor in excitement. She went to high school at Lakeside Lutheran in Lake Mills, where she enjoyed color guard and skipping classes. After graduating Lakeside, she received her degree from Herzing Institute. 

Cindy moved to the Madison area and worked at St. Mary’s Hospital as a transcriptionist. In 1977, she married Mark Schultz, which led to what may have been her greatest achievement: her two sons. She shared a close relationship with her parents and sisters.  Later, Cindy spent time living in West Bend and Beaver Dam. Cindy loved to entertain family and friends and did everything she could to accommodate guests. If family was coming to lunch or dinner, it was common for her to make unique entrées for each person. This trend continued throughout her life and even at work, as she would bring in treats that delighted everyone in the office.

On November 13, 2004, Cindy married Randy Lee Munson in Oregon, WI. When they met, they shared a strong bond, including a love of dogs. They moved to Belleville, WI with their five “furry children” and enjoyed the wide open space with their dogs. In Belleville, Cindy became a faithful member of Resurrection Lutheran Church in Verona.

Then, Cindy worked at UW Health, where she loved the atmosphere and her coworkers. She later became a transcription supervisor and recently celebrated her 10-year anniversary. One of her most proud professional accomplishments was her Employee of the Month award in 2013. Cindy was overwhelmed and extremely honored that her coworkers thought so highly of her.

After the passing of her mom in 2007, Cindy changed her outlook and fully embraced life. She loved to spend time with her dogs, often “dancing” and “singing” with them, and loved being greeted by them when she came home. Cindy loved penguins because of their wobble, and also enjoyed music, warm weather, beaches, auto racing, and cheering for the Chicago Bears. She loved to try new things and would buy any Groupon involving something new she could do with family or friends.  When Cindy was inspired, she would often dance and sing fun little jingles and didn’t care what others thought.

After years of asking, Cindy recently became a grandma this past May to granddaughter Scarlett.  Cindy loved to just hold her and talk to others about how beautiful she is. 

Cindy was preceded in death by her parents Clinton and Joan Rux, maternal and paternal grandparents, and loyal companions Maggie and Misty.

Cindy is survived by her husband Randy Munson of Belleville; her two sons: Joseph Schultz of Sun Prairie and Joshua (Samantha) Schultz and their daughter Scarlett of Cambridge; and her sisters: Valerie Rux of Fox Lake and Roxanne Kading of Beaver Dam; and her three “furry children”: Snickerdoodles, Gingersnaps and Silhouette.  She is further survived by three aunts, one uncle, cousins, and many friends.

Funeral services for Cindy will be held on Friday, June 13, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Ev. Lutheran Church, 300 West Street,  Beaver Dam with the Rev. Nathan Strutz and Vicar Jacob Haag officiating.  A visitation will also be held on Friday, June 13th from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the church.  Interment will follow at Oakwood Cemetery in Beaver Dam.

Memorial donations in Cindy’s name may be directed to Resurrection Lutheran Church, 6705 Wesner Road, Verona, WI  53593.

Koepsell-Murray Funeral and Cremation Services, N7199 N. Crystal Lake Rd., Beaver Dam is serving the family.  Online condolences may be made at www.koepsellfh.com
