Carol Sue Schultz, beloved mother, sister, grandmother, and friend, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on July 12th, 2023, at age 75.
She was born in Findlay, Ohio on March 6, 1948, and spent her formative years in North Baltimore, Ohio. Carol, affectionately known as Sue, was the daughter of Mearl and Lois Atkins, both of whom preceded her in death. Sue was one of six and came from a large and loving family. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Tom, and Jim Atkins. Her surviving siblings are her sisters, Kay Gonyer of Ft. White, Florida, Janie Stephens of Frisco, Texas, and Becky Rister of West Palm Beach, Florida. Sue’s family was a source of strength and support throughout her life. She was affectionately known as Aunt Sue to many nieces and nephews.
Sue was blessed with two children from her previous marriage to Tony Snyder. Her son Brad Snyder resides in North Carolina, while her daughter Molly (Snyder) Roth lives in Wooster, Ohio. Sue cherished her role as a mother and was immensely proud of her children’s accomplishments and the individuals they had become.
Sue was lucky to find love twice in her life and married her late husband Bill Schultz Jr. Bill sadly passed away on October 4, 2020. Her marriage to Bill brought her three wonderful stepchildren, Bill Schultz, Karen (Schultz) Sweeney, and Eric Schultz, who she loved as her own.
Her grandchildren, Hannah (Sanchez) Schonfeld, Leah Sanchez, Anna Schultz, Lilly Schultz, Grace Sweeney, Liam Sweeney, Jessica Schultz, Christian Schultz, Daniel Schultz, and Katie Schultz were the apple of Sue’s eye. She loved them dearly and found immense joy in watching them grow and experience life’s wonders.
Sue’s life was enriched by her deep love for sports and outdoor activities. She had a passion for tennis, pickleball, and enjoyed the beauty of beach sunsets. Sue’s adventurous spirit led her to explore various travel destinations around the world, alongside her late husband.
Sue dedicated 30 years of her career to the Wooster Community Hospital, where she worked in the Emergency Room Admitting department. She was a dedicated professional who provided compassionate care to those in need. Her commitment to her work touched the lives of countless individuals and made a lasting impact in her community.
Throughout her life, Sue embraced every moment with a positive and loving spirit. Her infectious smile and warm personality brought comfort and joy to those around her. She will be remembered for her kind heart, unwavering support, and genuine love for her family and friends.
