Lynn M. Schultz, 69, of Wabasha, passed away Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at Mayo Health System – St. Mary’s Campus, Rochester, MN after a long valiant fight against cancer.
Lynn Marie was born March 13, 1950, in Winona, MN to John and Gwendolyn (Peterson) Peters. She graduated from Wabasha-Kellogg High School in 1968. She also graduated from a technical college in the Twin Cities. She was a foster parent for over 20 years, before retiring in January 2018.
On December 24, 1988, she married Joseph Schultz at St. Paul’s Church, Theilman, MN. She enjoyed flower gardening, cross stitching, crocheting, playing the organ and was the church organist for many years. She was also known for her sewing talents, which brought her many compliments for the clothing she made for her children. Lynn always looked out for others, putting their needs before hers and never asking for help. Now that she has earned her wings, we are comforted in knowing she will continue to watch over us all.
She is survived by her husband Joseph; children: John Ahrens; Jeremy (Angie) Schultz; Jody Ahrens; Jeff (Lynda) Schultz; Katje Schultz; and Jessica Schultz; five grandchildren: Jordan and Devan; Destiny, Rose, and Faith; three great grandchildren: Levi, Hayden, and Riley; two sisters: Kristine Mlsna and Jill (David) Green; brothers: Kurt (Doris) Peters and Timm Peters; mother-in-law Laurel Schultz; sister-in-law Debora Schultz; and many other relatives.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brother Jeff and brother-in-law Gary Mlsna; father-in-law Louis Schultz and sister-in-law Robin Wilson.
