Sheila was employed at Milbank Insurance for one year, Midland Printing for 14 years, Dan’s Pharmacy for 11 years, Hardware Hank for one year, Montage for two years, and Triple Dip Lodge.
Sheila stated that the most special day in her life was on June 2, 1984, when she joined her life with Wilfred “Wil” Schulte at Trinity Lutheran Church in Corona, SD. She said that Wil loved her, protected her, and made her life worth living. Wil died on January 28, 2015.
Surviving her are: brother, Bill; sister-in-law, Sue; niece, Becky; nephew, Billy; and sister-in-law and brother-in-law: Dorothy and Leland Schwandt. Many cousins and their families in the area were a special part of Sheila’s life, as well as dear nieces and nephews from Wil’s family.

Sheila asks that you do not morn her passing, but rejoice because she has gone home to her Savior.
She loved you all!
