Dolores Marie “Dee” Schulz was born June 7, 1939 on a farm near Dixon to Leslie “Lec” and Mary (McCaw) Doescher. She graduated from Dixon High School and received a teaching degree from Wayne State College. Upon graduation, she taught school for several years. Dee married Vern H. Schulz on June 1, 1963 at Grace Lutheran Church in Wayne. The couple lived on a farm south of Wayne before moving to town. They started and operated a taxi service called “Wayne Yellow Cab” for a number of years before Dee began babysitting out of their home. They expanded the business into “Kiddie World Day Care Center” which she ran for many years until she retired. After retirement, she worked at Carlson Clearwater Fish Farm, Kids Closet and the Card Store.  For 13 years, Dee and Vern became "Winter Texans" in Edinburg, Texas, making many new friends and enjoying their retirement. She was a member of Our Savior Church, WELCA and enjoyed gardening, canning, volunteering and traveling with family and friends. She most of all loved her grandchildren and attending their activities and keeping up on their accomplishments by cutting out paper clippings and scrapbooking. 

Survivors include her husband, Vern; sons, Rocci (Nannette) Schulz of Spring, Texas and Terry (Teresa) Schulz of Wayne: grandchildren, Jaci (Jordan) Whittaker, Kyli Schulz, Ande Schulz, Nathan Schulz and Aliah Schulz; siblings, Darrell Doescher of Wayne, Keith (Jo) Doescher of Orchard, Donna (Gordan) Miller of Norfolk and Donovan Doescher of Wayne; many nieces and nephews.
