Caroline M. Schultz

Caroline M. Schultz, age 86, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at the Charleston House, Beaver Dam, WI.

Caroline was born January 17, 1929 in Watertown, Wisconsin, the daughter of Fred and Alma (Winkler) Ruegg.  She was married to Raymond "Beetle" Schultz on April 20, 1957 at the Lowell Methodist Church, Lowell, Wisconsin.  They owned and operated "Beetle's Bar" in Lowell.  After moving to Beaver Dam, Caroline worked at Jay Kay Fabrics and was the deli manager at Sentry Foods and later Gilmore's Piggly Wiggly until her retirement.  She was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam.

A devoted family woman and friend, she will be missed by many.  Other than her family...her greatest passions were cooking and entertaining.  She loved the holidays and took great pride in decorating and hosting parties for her family and friends.
